Issued by the Perth Mint, this commemorative coin celebrates Elizabeth II as Britain’s Longest Reigning Monarch.
The coin is minted using the intaglio minting technique and comes in a presentation box with certificate of authentication.
During the late hours of 9th September 2015, Queen Elizabeth II became the longest reigning British head of state. The title was previously held by Queen Victoria, who reigned for 63 years and 216 days. This made Queen Elizabeth not only the longest reigning British monarch, but the longest reigning female monarch. Celebrations for the event took place on 10th September 2015.
Intaglio is an artistic technique where an image is carved and engraved into the surface. These silver coins have an intaglio style finish to them - a 'reverse relief’.
The obverse features a larger version of Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait with the inscription:
ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2015 · 1 DOLLAR ·
The reverse of the coin features a version of the Queen's portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley surrounded by Tudor roses. The inscription reads:
H.M. QUEEN ELIZABETH II LONGEST REIGNING MONARCH 1oz 999 SILVER
The Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark is also included in the design.
