2022 marks 70 years since Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. In honor of this incredible milestone, the Perth Mint has designed a brand-new coin that’s perfect for devotees of the Royal Family.

The story of Elizabeth II is a truly inspiring one. Hers is the tale of an unlikely queen who rose to become one of the most beloved monarchs in history. When Elizabeth’s uncle abdicated the throne in order to pursue American divorcee Wallis Simpson, Elizabeth realized her life was changed forever. Rather than enjoying the freedom to pursue her passions, she instead found herself heir apparent to the throne. While her individual achievements are many, we should also recognize her remarkable 73-year marriage to Prince Phillip, which lasted until his death in 2021.
Two portraits are included on the obverse of 2022 1/4 oz Proof Australian Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Coins. The first is the 1953 image of Queen Elizabeth, and the second is the 5th Generation portrait designed by Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark in 2015. These dual portraits are the perfect way to acknowledge Her Majesty’s impressive reign. Included in the design are the coin’s hallmarks and an Australian fan of wattle.
The Royal arms quartered shield is displayed on the reverse of 2022 1/4 oz Proof Gold Australian Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Coins. The design also features a stunning decorative branch containing an English rose, Irish shamrock, Scottish thistle, and Australian wattle. Also appearing on the reverse design are the words H.M. Queen Elizabeth II and the years 1952 2022.
