Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of a new High Relief coin on behalf of Ascension Island featuring a “Double Portrait” of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the year that marks her 90th Birthday.
Featuring a portrait of Her Majesty showing a Young Queen Elizabeth alongside a portrait of Her Majesty today, this coin is made even more special by the three 0.005 Carat diamonds inset into her crown highlighted in amazing detail by the High Relief of both portraits.
The Queen is set to celebrate her 90th birthday on 21st April, and there are plenty of celebrations in store to mark the monarch's milestone day. From pageants and street parties to a very special television programme featuring members of the royal family, a number of commemorative events have been arranged that are fit for a Queen.
This stunning coin is available in 1oz High Relief Fine Gold with Diamonds with an issue limit of 62 that represent the number of gun salutes, that take place at the Tower of London, to commemorate the Queen Birthday every year. 21 is the normal gun salute followed by an extra 20 as it is a Royal Palace and finished off with 21 more for the City of London.
The design features a double side portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, one showing Her Majesty as a Young Queen with the portrait in the foreground showing a more current image of Her Majesty. The wording “God Save Our Gracious Queen” appears in the surround. The obverse depicts the Queen’s effigy design by Pobjoy Mint.
