Design

Your coin combines two officially licensed images from the National Portrait Gallery in London. A colour reproduction of the 1838 state portrait of Her Majesty Queen Victoria by Sir George Hayter depicts Her Majesty at the time of her Coronation on June 28, 1838. Seated on the gilded Homage Chair, Her Majesty wears the red and gold Coronation Robes and the Imperial State Crown, and carries the Sovereign's Sceptre with Cross. The background is an engraved depiction of the site of the coronation ceremony, Westminster Abbey, and is based on an original etching by Wenceslaus Hollar. The reverse includes "2019" to commemorate the bicentennial of the birth (May 24, 1819) of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
From 1837 to 1901, Her Majesty Queen Victoria presided over key events in Canadian history. While Her Majesty's long reign began in the time of the rebellions in Upper and Lower Canada, Her Majesty Queen Victoria is remembered as a popular sovereign who modernized the monarchy and presided over the growth of democracy in British colonies such as Canada. 
Her Majesty left her mark on Canadian geography: including cities such as Victoria, B.C., and Regina, Sask. ("Regina" means "Queen" in Latin).
Victoria Day is an annual holiday in Canada and Scotland. The tradition dates back to 1845, when a national holiday was declared in honour of Her Majesty Queen Victoria's birthday (May 24). Upon Her Majesty's death in 1901, the day was officially named Victoria Day. In 1952, the annual holiday moved to a Monday, either May 24th or the Monday immediately preceding this date. Canada also celebrates the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Victoria Day (although the actual date is April 21).

 

Packaging
