Description

It was 70 years ago that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, then Princess Elizabeth, took on the noble, lifelong role of motherhood. The Royal Canadian Mint proudly presents a picture-perfect coin that is both a birthday celebration for His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and a touching tribute to Her Majesty as monarch and matriarch.

The reverse features a reproduction of a touching Royal portrait of motherhood, one that was taken 70 years ago at Buckingham Palace. The original black-and-white photograph (©Cecil Beaton/Victoria and Albert Museum, London/Londres) is re-created with a colour application over engraved elements, which add textural relief to the image of Her Majesty (then Princess Elizabeth) gazing down at her first-born son, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, when he was five weeks old (December 1948). Designed by Canadian artist Maurice Gervais, the gold-coloured border consists of maple leaves that represent the connection between Canada and the Crown. A scroll banner at the top features a stylized version of St. Edward's Crown placed between the double dates "1948" and "2018", to commemorate a Royal birth and 70 years of the dual role of Her Majesty as monarch and matriarch. The reverse also includes the engraved word "CANADA". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

The Royal Canadian Mint proudly celebrates an upcoming royal anniversary and a tribute to Her Majesty as monarch and matriarch, all in one beautifully crafted coin.
