A Release Remembering the Legacy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
This release features the familiar effigy of Queen Elizabeth II which now represents her final year in power. Reigning for 70 years and 214 days, Queen Elizabeth II was in power longer than any British monarch. Additionally, her govern is recorded as the second-longest verified reign of any sovereign in history.
Appearing on coins from at least 45 countries, more than any other individual, Queen Elizabeth II has had a strong influence on numismatics for many years. Issued in 2022, this release marks the final year of the Queen’s reign and possibly the last year this well-recognized effigy will ever appear on a legal tender coin.
