Description

This 2022 one ounce fine silver coin pays tribute to the 70th year of reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. The design features the iconic monarch’s Diamond Diadem, the royal headpiece that has appeared in countless portraits since Her Majesty acceded to the throne in 1952. Swarovski® crystals add a diamond-like sparkle to the rhodium-plated embellishment, which resembles the diadem’s cross and the floral sprays representing the national emblems of England, Ireland and Scotland. Mintage is limited to just 4,500.

The reverse includes the inscription “CANADA” at the top and “20 DOLLARS” at the bottom. The obverse features the date “2022” and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

The Diamond Diadem - The regal Diamond Diadem is also known as the George IV State Diadem because it was originally created for the coronation of King George IV in 1821. It has since been exclusively worn by queens regnant and consort, beginning with Queen Adelaide and continuing with Queen Victoria, who designated it an Heirloom of the Crown in 1901. Its silver frame is lined with gold and set with 1,333 brilliant-cut diamonds, including a four-carat yellow brilliant at the centre of the front cross. Its narrow band is edged with pearls and surmounted by four crosses pattée and four sprays featuring a rose for England, shamrocks for Ireland and a thistle for Scotland.
