On the 200th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Victoria's birth, this stamp-inspired collectible looks back at what collectors consider to be the Dominion of Canada's first commemorative stamps: the 1897 "Jubilee" issue. Re-created in the deep blue colour of the original 50-cent stamp, the dual-portrait design is a tribute to a sovereign who helped shape the Canada of today, whose May birthday is still celebrated by Canadians 200 years later in most provinces and territories in Canada.

Design:

The deep blue on your coin is a reproduction of Canada's 1897 "Jubilee Issue" 50-cent stamp that was originally designed by Peleg Franklin Brownell and Lyndwode Charles Pereira. The portrait on the left is based on an 1837 painting of Her Majesty Queen Victoria by Alfred Edward Chalon, R. A., while the portrait on the right is based on an 1882 photograph by Alexander Bassano. Between the two portraits are the initials "VRI" (Victoria Regina Imperatrix) and the dual dates "1837 and "1897" that reflect the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty's reign. The obverse features a repeating maple leaf pattern behind the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse includes the year "2019", the legend "ELIZABETH II D. G. REGINA" and the face value "50 CENTS".

Did you know…
  • An Empire-wide holiday:
    The Diamond Jubilee celebrations took place on Tuesday, June 22nd, 1897. The actual anniversary of Her Majesty's accession was two days prior, on Sunday, June 20th, 1897.
  • Victoria Day is an annual holiday in Canada and Scotland.
    The tradition dates back to 1845, when a national holiday was declared in honour of Her Majesty Queen Victoria's birthday (May 24). Upon Her Majesty's death in 1901, the day was officially named Victoria Day. Her son and successor, Edward VII, allowed his birthday to be officially celebrated on the same day. In 1952, the annual holiday moved to a Monday—either May 24th or the Monday immediately preceding this date. Today, by statute (since 1957) and royal proclamation (1953-56), Canadians also celebrate the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Victoria Day (Her Majesty's actual birthday is April 21, 1926).
  • The "Jubilee" commemorative stamps kicked off Canada's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
    Still beloved by collectors, these stamps were released to the public on the Saturday preceding the Jubilee celebrations. Demand was so high that all 16 "Jubilee" stamps sold out within the first hour, and some were willing to pay a premium for these Jubilee souvenirs that shared a similar design.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
