The Coronation Stakes is a Group 1 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at Ascot over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in June.

The event was established in 1840, and its title commemorates the coronation of a new British monarch, Queen Victoria, two years earlier.

The present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, and the Coronation Stakes was subsequently given Group 2 status. It was promoted to the highest level, Group 1, in 1988. The event usually features fillies which ran previously in the 1,000 Guineas, the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches or the Irish 1,000 Guineas. It is presently contested on day four of the five-day Royal Ascot meeting.
