It means the celebration of the 25th anniversary of a particular event. In relation to Queen Elizabeth, she celebrated her 25th year as being Queen in 1977 and all of the acti…vities surrounding that celebration were called the Silver Jubilee. Traditions began with associating physical things with the length of marriages, with various milestones being given every more "valuable" designations. Year one is "paper", year five is "wood". "Silver" is the designation for the 25th year anniversary, "Gold" is 50th. Jubilee's tend to cover a longer period of time than just the day. For example Queen Elizabeth celebrated her 25th year as being Queen in 1977 and all of the activities surrounding that celebration were called the Silver Jubilee. The concept of Jubilee by the way is Biblical (Leviticus 25:8-10), and is thousands of years old. The direction was that upon the passage of 7 cycles of 7 years, (49 years), all lands were left fallow, and all lands that had been given for use by others, whether sold, rented, whatever, had to be returned to the original tribe that owned it, thus restoring the land to its traditional owners. So often any 50th year anniversary has been associated with the concept of Jubilee. (MORE)

There are usually only three. So far, Queen Elizabeth II has celebrated a Silver Jubilee (in 1977, marking her 25th year on the throne), a Golden Jubilee (in 2002, a 50th year… observance) and a Diamond Jubilee (in 2012, for her 60th year as queen). A Diamond Jubilee normally would be held for the 75th anniversary of a monarch's reign, but an arrangement was made to honor Queen Victoria in 1897 for her 60th year on the throne. Queen Elizabeth II is the only other British queen to observe a Diamond Jubilee. According to Katie Couric of ABC News, Queen Elizabeth would celebrate a Platinum Jubilee if she is still Britain's monarch in 2022. (MORE)

However, it seems inappropriate to combine the terms que and de when dealing with such Roman fractions. In any event, if such a conjunction was appropriate then it would perhaps more likely have been "Dosquibicentennial" (but the result is little shorter anyway).[1] / Demisemiseptcentennial | Probably[attribution needed] a modern coined term: demisemiseptcentennial; literally one-half (demi-) x one-half (semi-) x seven (sept-) x 100 years (centennial)-also demisemiseptcentenary.[4][5] / Quartoseptcentennial | Probably[attribution needed] a modern coined term: quartoseptcentennial; literally one-quarter (quarto-) x seven (sept-) x 100 years (centennial)-also quartoseptcentenary.[6] / Terquasquicentennial | First used by Bell Laboratories in celebrating its 175th anniversary as a corporation.[citation needed] Is a coined word for an anniversary of 175 years, but the elements of the word literally refer to an anniversary of 375 years, as follows: ter- (3) × quasqui- (1¼) × centennial (100 years) / Septaquintaquinque- centennial | Suggested by lexicographer Robert L. Chapman to William Safire; first appeared in Safire's column, "On Language" (The New York Times Magazine, February 12, 1995). It is a coined word for an anniversary of 175 years, but the elements of the word literally refer to an anniversary of 35,000 years, as follows: septaquinta- (70) × quinque- (5) × centennial (100 years) / 200 years | Bicentennial / 250 yearsSestercentennial | - | To express 2½ in Latin it would be expressed as "half-three". The term relates to being halfway [from the second] to the third integer. In Latin this is "Sestertius" which is a contraction of semis (halfway) tertius (third) - hence Sestercentennial.[1] / Semiquincentennial | Probably[attribution needed] a modern coined term: semi- (half) × quin (5) × centennial (100 years) = 250 years / Bicenquinquagenary | Used by Princeton University in 1996, Reading, Pennsylvania in 1998, and Washington and Lee University in 1999.[7] It is a coined word for an anniversary of 250 years, but the elements of the word literally refer to an anniversary of 10,000 years, as follows: bi- (2) × cen(t)- (100) × quinquagenary (50 years) / Quarter-millennial | Meaning one fourth of one thousand years.[8] / 300 years | Tercentennial | Tricentennial / 350 yearsSesquarcentennial | - | A modern coined term; sesquarcentennial for 350 years is deduced here from the "Sestertius" definition for 250 years above.

A platinum celebration is normally 70 years in Britain, however for the jubilee if Queen Elizabeth is to remain on the throne it would probably be 75 years. The reason for th…is is because Asia celebrates a platinum celebration every 75 years and parts of Asia are still connected to the Commonwealth. If the Queen is too ill and not expected to go much past her seventieth year on the throne, then I suspect they will hold it sooner. (MORE)
