This beautiful 1/4oz gold coin honours Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.

In early 1952, Princess Elizabeth left England on an official tour of the Commonwealth. She was standing in for her father King George VI, who was too ill to travel. On 6 February, while in Kenya, she received a telegram with news of the King’s death and her accession to the throne.

Crowned on 2 June 1953, the Queen’s reign has been nothing short of remarkable. Admired as a symbol of strength and stability and beloved by people around the globe, she became the longest-reigning monarch in British history on 9 September 2015. On 6 February 2022 she became the first British monarch to celebrate 70 years on the throne.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure gold, this coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,000 of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022 1/4oz Gold Proof Coin.

DESIGN

The coin’s reverse portrays the Shield of the Royal Coat of Arms featuring three lions passant, a harp, and a lion rampant – ancient heraldic symbols of England, Ireland and Scotland. A figurative flower stem combines stylised representations of an English rose, Irish shamrock and Scottish thistle, together with Australian wattle. Also included in the design is the inscription ‘H.M. QUEEN ELIZABETH II 1952 | 2022’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and an artistic interpretation of the mantle from the Royal Arms – originally a linen cover on the back of a medieval knights helmet.

A special obverse depicts a fan of wattle overlaid with Her Majesty’s first and current coin effigies. Also included on the obverse are the coin’s weight, purity, monetary denomination and year-date.

PRESENTATION

The coin is housed in a classic display case with a wooden lid. Packaged within an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
