Design:

Royal Canadian Mint engravers modelled this regal portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II based upon her effigy on the 1953 Coronation Medallion. The Queen is shown facing right and wearing St. Edward's Crown, with fine detailing highlighting features of the Coronation Gown and The Queen's pearl necklaces. The portrait is framed by the anniversary year (1953-2018) and face value (10 DOLLARS) that are engraved along the coin's outer edge.

  • More than 3 million bronze Coronation Medallions were distributed to schoolchildren in 1953. The Queen's portrait that appeared on the medallion was one of 27 proposals that had been submitted by individual designers and firms in Britain.
  • The Queen's portrait on the Coronation Medallion made a second, rare appearance on Canada's 50-cent circulation coin during her Golden Jubilee Year of 2003.
  • The Queen has worn St. Edward's Crown only once—at the moment of her coronation. It is featured in her portrait on the Coronation Medallion, with its heraldic interpretation engraved above the Royal Cypher (monogram) on the reverse.
  • Queen Elizabeth II is Britain's longest-reigning monarch. She has reigned for more than 65 years, surpassing her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria who reigned for 63 years, 7 months and 2 days.
