United in Celebration: Introducing a Two-Coin Set from the Royal Canadian Mint and The Royal Mint
In 2021, Her Majesty The Queen celebrates the latest milestone in a remarkable life as she becomes the first British monarch to reach a 95th birthday. To mark this historic event and personal achievement for Her Majesty, the Royal Canadian Mint and The Royal Mint are proud to present this two-coin set. Both mints have struck a one ounce fine silver coin for this special tribute and each is finished to Proof standard, enhancing each beautiful design.
The coin from The Royal Mint features a reverse created by heraldic artist Timothy Noad. In his design, The Queen’s royal heritage and symbols of the British nations are represented by a posy filled with thistles, daffodils, roses and shamrocks. The inscription ‘My Heart and My Devotion’ is taken from The Queen’s first televised Christmas broadcast, and the obverse bears the fifth definitive coinage portrait of The Queen by Jody Clark.
The coin from the Royal Canadian Mint features The Queen Elizabeth II Equestrian Monument by sculptor Jack Harman (1927-2001). It depicts Her Majesty riding astride her horse, Centenial. The statue was unveiled by Her Majesty on July 1, 1992 on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Canada. The commemorative obverse features the four effigies of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II used on Canadian coinage since 1953. These familiar images take us from her first youthful portrait as a newly crowned queen to the experienced and much-loved monarch we know today.
A must-have coin set for royalty and coin enthusiasts wanting to commemorate this historic event.
