Queen Elizabeth II is a record-setting monarch in many different ways. With an ongoing reign that is in its 69th year in 2021, Queen Elizabeth II has surpassed her great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, as the longest-reigning British monarch. In fact, in 2017 she became the first British monarch to reach and celebrate a Sapphire Jubilee marking 65 years on the throne. In 2022, the Queen has the potential to also become the first monarch ever to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee in honor of 70 years on the throne.

The coins are housed inside classic black boxes from the Perth Mint with a wooden lid. The coin and box ship in a commemorative shipping sleeve with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity included.
On the obverse side of 2021 Proof Gold Australian HM Queen Elizabeth II 95th Birthday Coins is an image of Her Majesty created in 2015. Designed by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint, this design was adopted by the Perth Mint in 2018 as the sixth-generation design for Australian coins. Notably, it is the first effigy of the Queen since 1966 to include the Queen’s shoulders in a fuller portrait.
The reverse face of the 2021 1/4 oz Proof Gold HM Queen Elizabeth II 95th Birthday Coin features a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II from the first year of her reign. Designed in 1952 by Mary Gillick, the Queen is shown in right-profile relief with a wreath crown on her head.
