Longevity is something to be admired when it comes to monarchs. The leaders of kingdoms of the past had to deal with lesser healthcare systems, challenges to the crown, war, and other strife that could abruptly end their reign. The modern era has seen different challenges to monarchs, such as public discontent with supporting an ancient institution. Despite these challenges, Queen Elizabeth II remains a popular figure in England and celebrates her 70th anniversary on the throne in 2022.

On February 6, 1952, a young Elizabeth rose to the throne of England following the death of her father, King George VI. Queen Elizabeth II was initially distant in the line to ascend to the throne of England. Her father was behind his elder brother, King Edward VIII, who abdicated the throne to marry an American woman by the name of Wallis Simpson.
Elizabeth was the eldest daughter of King George VI, and when her father rose to the throne in 1936, she became the heir apparent. Since 1952, she has ruled over England as Queen and head of state with a steady guiding hand.
In the obverse design of 2022 1 oz Proof Gold St. Helena Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Coins, a right-profile portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II features in the design element. This image shows the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem, an official piece from the Crown Jewels.
For the reverse design of the 2022 Proof Gold Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Coin, the East India Company offers a distinctive design honoring the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This design marks her 70th year as Queen of England and celebrates the fact that she is the first, and so far only, monarch to reach a Platinum Jubilee.
These 2022 1 oz Proof Gold St. Helena Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Coins are available to purchase inside presentation displays. The display box includes a Certificate of Authenticity and protects the proof visuals of the coin.
