To celebrate the incredible life of Her Majesty we have managed to secure a limited number of her birth year Sovereigns from 1926, which feature the portrait of her grandfather King George V.

Princess Elizabeth was born in London on 21 April 1926, the first child of The Duke and Duchess of York. Edward VIII’s abdication ten years hence would plunge Britain into a constitutional crisis and alter the line of succession. By a twist of fate, the young princess became heir to the throne, destined to become Queen and Head of the Commonwealth. Queen Elizabeth II has celebrated many milestones throughout her reign, such as…..

  • Longest Reigning Monarch
  • Oldest British Monarch
  • 1977 Silver jubilee
  • 2002 Golden Jubilee
  • 2012 Diamond Jubilee
  • 2018 Sapphire Coronation

For collectors, significant birth year dated editions are amongst the most desirable and we have managed to source a small number of the 1926 Sovereigns, the year that Her Majesty was born.
