The ruby’s protective powers made it a highly symbolic wedding gift from the Burmese people that have stood The Queen in good stead as she has served the Commonwealth longer than any of her predecessors. For Canada, no other royal relationship has been as rich and enduring, inspiring more respect and affection with every passing year. To this day, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II embodies traditions that date back over a thousand years, yet she has also shone as a luminary through periods of unprecedented change. Mintage is limited to 175 coins.
Royal Canadian Mint engravers have recreated one of the heraldic Tudor roses featured on the Burmese tiara using genuine rubies to replicate the rose’s centre, and selective platinum plating to define the surrounding petals.
An incomparable treasure providing a rare insight into the personal style of one of the most popular monarchs in history!
