Whilst the long-reigning Queen Elizabeth II has celebrated various impressive milestones during her reign, no royal event has inherited as much importance as that of the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations marking 70 years of the Queen’s unprecedented reign. Having spent more time on the throne than any other British monarch, Queen Elizabeth is one of the most beloved figures in Great Britain and is adored by millions of people across the globe.
Throughout history, members of the royal family have been distinguished by unique traits and distinct aspects of their appearance, however, an accessory that has been typical of monarchs since the 18th century is none other than the Diamond Diadem. Originally created for King George VI, the crown embellished in pearls and diamonds is a royal headpiece that has been worn by various monarchs, and most recently Queen Elizabeth II.
Countless portraits of Her Majesty have depicted her wearing the renowned tiara, a recognisable symbol that has been prominent during her 70 years of reign.
In celebration of this monumental milestone in British Monarchy History, The Royal Canadian Mint has collaborated with the premium crystal manufacturer Swarovski to create a Special $20 Pure Silver Coin, depicting the Queen’s diadem which incorporates sparkling Swarovski Crystals.
A unique tribute to Her Majesty’s 70 years of reign, this release has been designed by Artist Jori Van der Linde and also features a serrated edge finish.
Depicted on the obverse of the coin is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
This Precious release is housed in a stylish black clamshell box, showcasing your coin in superb style!
