1887

Such were the celebrations for the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887 that it led the queen to record in her journal, "No one ever, I believe, has met with such an ovation as was given to me, passing through those six miles of streets … The cheering was quite deafening and every face seemed to be filled with real joy. I was much moved and gratified."

In that Jubilee year, a new coinage portrait of The Queen was introduced, created by Sir Joseph Edgar Boehm who depicted The Queen with a small crown. It would become known as the ‘Jubilee head’. This prestigious Double-Sovereign was struck in that golden year.
