From the moment she was thrust into the spotlight as a child when her father became King, Queen Elizabeth II has commanded immense respect. Now amassing 65 years on the throne, she is the longest reigning British/English monarch - and the first to reach her sapphire jubilee. Macquarie Mint invites you to celebrate this history-defining moment with the 14-carat Queen Elizabeth II Sapphire Jubilee Gold Coin. This spectacular, premium-quality issue is both a testament to modern minting, and a fitting tribute to a moment in time unlikely to be repeated for generations.
Struck from real gold to flawless quality
Gold is an immensely popular metal in international numismatics. It's easy to understand its appeal when combined with such a splendid reverse design, and struck to immaculate prooflike quality! This Queen Elizabeth II Sapphire Jubilee tribute is resplendent in 14-carat gold, and has been specially crafted to achieve the prized, glassily-mirrored fields of a prooflike finish.
Celebrates an incredible tenure
Born Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary on April 21, 1926, Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning British/English monarch, and has seen an incredible amount of change and upheaval during her 65 years on the throne. Not expected to become queen, with her uncle Edward VIII directly in line to the throne, everything changed for the Princess with Edward's shock abdication. Her father, George VI, was thrust into the role of king, and Elizabeth, the heir presumptive. With more than 70 years of marriage to her Prince-consort, Philip, the Queen has lived a remarkable life. Reportedly a perfectionist by nature and a firm believer in upholding tradition, she is conversely perhaps most notable for her willingness to adapt and modernise to suit a changing world.
Characterised by a stunning reverse design
Upon this coin's reverse, a crown motif takes centre stage, flanked by a heraldic Unicorn - for Scotland - and Lion - for England - in a richly symbolic, distinctly regal design. The words 'Sapphire Jubilee' are proudly emblazoned beneath the two animals, along with the initials 'E.R' and the dates between which the incredible 65 years of rule have fallen. It's a highly detailed design, brought to life through the quality of the strike, and deftly enhanced with the use of lustrous precious metal.
Legal tender of Nauru
The obverse of this coin is equally significant. Bearing the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, it confirms your coin's status as official legal tender of Nauru.
