On 9 September 2015, Her Majesty The Queen surpassed the record set by her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria, becoming Britain’s longest reigning monarch. The Queen was just 25 years old when her father passed away in 1952. In the 63 years that have passed since, she has dedicated herself to serving Britain and the Commonwealth; through times of unprecedented technical and scientific progress that has shaped culture today.
For this regal kilo coin, we have called upon respected artist James Butler MBE RA, designer of The Queen’s Great Seal of the Realm, to create a commemorative effigy of Her Majesty. For the reverse, Stephen Taylor, a talented member of The Royal Mint’s design studio, has united the five definitive portraits of Queen Elizabeth II that have graced the UK’s circulating coinage, conveying how The Queen has changed over time upon the nation’s coins. Your coin, struck in one kilo of 999 fine gold and finished to pristine Proof standard, comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a booklet detailing the cultural highlights of Her Majesty’s reign.
