Buy with Confidence
A precious gemstone tribute to Queen Elizabeth II
The final piece in the Royal Canadian Mint's Queen Elizabeth II’s Reign collection is a high-end collector’s item that dazzles and sparkles. A symbol of Queen Elizabeth II and her extraordinary reign, the Royal Cypher on the coin’s reverse is framed by an artistic interpretation of the Imperial State Crown, complete with sapphires and emeralds, while the diamonds tie into the coin’s obverse.
The Imperial State Crown is one of the most iconic pieces of royal regalia known as the Crown Jewels. This was the crown worn by Queen Elizabeth II upon leaving Westminster Abbey after her coronation in 1953; and in the many years that followed, it was the one that represented both her authority as Head of State and the grace with which she reigned.

On the reverse, the artistic interpretation of the Imperial State Crown is enhanced with eight emeralds and eight sapphires that add colour. They also represent some of the historic jewels that famously adorn the crown, as well as those from Queen Elizabeth II’s jewellery collection.
Four genuine diamonds are hand set on the reverse, one for each of the effigies that have graced Canada’s circulation coins since 1953.
Marked by a small Tudor rose, the tribute obverse combines the four different effigies that have graced Canadian coins since Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953. This obverse is only featured on the numismatic coins in the Queen Elizabeth II’s Reign
DID YOU KNOW?
- While St Edward’s Crown is only ever used for the coronation, the Imperial State Crown (or Crown of State) is worn on formal occasions, such as the State Opening of (British) Parliament.
- The State Crown has been replaced 10 times since the Restoration in 1660. The one depicted on this coin was made for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II’s father, King George VI, in 1937; it is a replica of the crown designed for Queen Elizabeth II’s great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, in 1838.
DESIGN & ARTIST
The coin’s reverse features the Royal Cypher of Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by an artistic representation of the Imperial State Crown, as viewed from above. An arrangement of 16 genuine sapphires and emeralds stands in for the array of precious stones that adorn the crown, while the reverse includes four diamonds—one for each of the effigies that have graced Canada’s coins since 1953. Double dated to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s historic reign, the tribute obverse is marked by a Tudor rose and features the four historic effigies of Queen Elizabeth II (left to right): the 2003-2022 effigy by Susanna Blunt; the 1990-2002 effigy by Dora de Pédery-Hunt; the 1965-1989 effigy by Arnold Machin; and the 1953-1964 effigy by Mary Gillick.
