Description

The Longest Reigning Monarchs Milestone Jubilees Coin Set

With this year’s celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee – the first such jubilee in British history – also comes the celebration of our second-longest reigning monarch’s Diamond Jubilee. That celebration was in the year 1897 for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, or 60th anniversary of reign. This two coin set brings together British coins that celebrate these two important jubilees:

Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee – there were no commemorative coins produced for this jubilee, but in this set we have an original silver shilling, featuring the Veiled Portrait of Queen Victoria (used 1893-1901) which was on her coinage in her Diamond Jubilee year. This is in selected circulated condition.

Queen Elizabeth II • 2022 • Platinum Jubilee – Britain has produced a special 50p coin, the first 50p coin ever to commemorate a royal event. It features a large number ’70’ with the royal cypher inside the zero. On the obverse is not the usual Queen’s side profile, but a portrait of her on horseback – the so-called Equestrian Portrait – which is a tradition observed for some of the commemorative coins for her previous jubilees, and to the original silver crown coin of King Edward VI in 1551. This coin is in BU condition.

These two coins come together to celebrate our two longest reigning monarchs – Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II – in a celebration of their Diamond and Platinum Jubilee years respectively
