Queen Elizabeth II is the fifth and final monarch to be featured in this exceptional series of ultra-high relief coins. She was crowned at the dawn of the television age enabling the public to witness her coronation in a way never possible before. Elizabeth II is arguably the world’s most recognized monarch.

Each coin in this series has been struck an astounding four times and has been meticulously worked and polished by hand; the resulting irregularities are characteristic of this ultra-highrelief process and testament to its intensive hand crafting.

Highlights: This series features the first double-effigy coins ever issued by the Mint, made all the more special with this final coin showcasing Britain’s current monarch on both sides; Elizabeth II’s first effigy on the reverse and her current effigy on the obverse.

Reverse: The first effigy of Elizabeth II that appeared on Canada’s 1-, 5-, 10-, 25- and 50-cent coins from 1953 to 1964.
