Together these coins forever preserve the legacy of the beloved Queen of Canada. The set is a 2023 release from the Royal Canadian Mint, double dated 1952-2022 for the years of Her Majesty’s reign. Three one ounce fine silver coins. Mintage is limited to 7,500 coins.

The Design:

Coin #1 – Childhood
The design is based on a 1929 photograph of a young Princess Elizabeth with her father, the future King George VI.

Coin #2 – Princess in the Military

The design features Princess Elizabeth during the Second World War as she joined the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service.

Coin #3 – Royal Visit

The design is based on a photograph of Queen Elizabeth II in Halifax, N.S., during the Canadian Navy Centennial celebration held on June 29, 2010.

The obverse features a new tribute design combining the four effigies of Queen Elizabeth that have graced Canadian coinage since her coronation in 1953. The effigies span from showing the young Queen at the age of 27 at her coronation to the most recent effigy used through her 2022 platinum jubilee in 2022. 

 

Queen Elizabeth II:

Queen Elizabeth II was born a princess, but she wasn’t destined to reign until fate intervened. When her uncle King Edward VIII abdicated the throne in 1936, the ten-year-old Princess Elizabeth was suddenly the heiress presumptive. The young princess accepted her destiny with grace, putting a lifelong sense of duty and a deep love of her country and the Commonwealth above all else.

Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21, 1926, and acceded to the throne on February 6, 1952 upon the death of her father King George VI. Her coronation was held on June 2, 1953. Her Majesty ruled with grace and dignity for more than 70 years until her death on September 8th , 2022.
