One year has now passed since the world mourned the loss of a remarkable monarch, a beloved leader and a symbol of strength and grace.
And our latest video has been dedicated to the memory of Her Late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Watch below.
In 2022, The Royal Canadian Mint issued a stunning Silver Proof coin accentuated with Gold plate.
It was issued as a tribute to the life and legacy of Queen Elizabeth II, featuring a sentimental one-off obverse design.
There were 15,000 issued worldwide, but they sold-out almost immediately.
That’s because the reverse design beautifully represents the Imperial State Crown – the crown worn by the monarch as they leave Westminster Abbey after the Coronation.
And today could be your last chance to secure one…
The Imperial State Crown
The Imperial State Crown is the crown worn by the Monarch at Westminster Abbey as they leave the Coronation ceremony. It also garces the Head of State on other occasions such as the Opening of Parliament.
The Imperial State Crown was created for the Coronation of King George VI in 1937, replacing Queen Victoria’s 1838 crown. The Imperial State Crown contains some of the most iconic jewels, such as the Black Prince’s Ruby and the Stuart Sapphire.
Made of solid Gold, it is enhanced with 2,868 diamonds, 17 sapphires, 11 emeralds, 269 pearls, and 4 rubies! In fact, the centrepiece of the crown – the Edward’s Sapphire – is said to have been worn by St Edward the Confessor which was discovered in his tomb in 1163.
SOLD-OUT Imperial State Crown Silver Proof Coin
Released as part of The Royal Canadian Mint’s Memorial coin range for Elizabeth II, this stunning Silver coin represents the Imperial State Crown.
Struck from 99.99% Fine Silver to a pristine Proof finish, your coin has been impressively accentuated with the most prestigious Gold plate.
And within days of release, this coin sold-out an entire edition limit 15,000 at The Royal Canadian Mint.
What’s more, this coin features the special tribute obverse from the Royal Canadian Mint’s Memorial coin range. Combining all four Canadian effigies of Elizabeth II, it is marked by a small Tudor rose which honours Elizabeth II’s time on coinage since her coronation in 1953.
This tribute obverse is unique to this range of coins, and integrates the designs of previous obverse designers: Susanna Blunt, Dora de Pédery-Hunt, Arnold Machin, and Mary Gillick.
But, with this coin already SOLD-OUT and only a tiny number available for Westminster Collectors, this could be your last chance…
Let me introduce you to a coin that speaks volumes…
Meticulously crafted from Pure Silver, the impressive King’s Speech 5oz 100mm Coin has been issued to honour King Charles III’s defining moment as Monarch.
Every word of the emotional and historic address he gave to the nation following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II feature on this coin – that’s 977 words in total!
A Monarch’s Defining Moment
On the 9th September 2022, just one day removed from Her Late Majesty’s passing, King Charles III made the poignant speech. In the address he paid tribute to his mother and pledged to show the same unwavering commitment to duty.
And so, this coin not only commemorates King Charles III’s first ever speech as Monarch but it also honours the incredible reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
Relive the King’s Speech…
The King’s Speech Pure Silver 5oz Coin is a true numismatic masterpiece, one that has seen incredible demand from collectors worldwide.
In fact its Pure Gold Counterpart, priced at a staggering £59,995, had an edition limit of JUST 5.
Making a Masterpiece
The King’s Speech Silver 5oz is an impressive combination of artistic expression and technical prowess.
The delicate process of striking 977 words onto a coin has been achieved using the process of micro-engraving. Every single word has been meticulously engraved onto the die, a painstaking process that requires remarkable precision and expertise. Skilled artisans devoted countless hours to ensuring that each letter has been flawlessly etched.
Once the micro-engraving is complete, the die is ready to undergo the next step in the coin production process. With force and finesse, it is expertly struck multiple times, employing immense pressure to achieve the pristine Proof finish which brings the micro-engraved words to life.
Of course, fitting a 9 minute speech onto a coin presented a major challenge. That’s why each coin has been struck from FIVE OUNCES of Pure Silver and measure at an incredible 100mm.
With its minted design, lustrous silver content and the sheer significance of the occasion it commemorates, this coin is an absolute must-have for collectors worldwide.
