Steadfast, constant and true—these are the traits that defined the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. A model of duty and dignity, Queen Elizabeth II never wavered in her resolve. She pledged to dedicate her life to service, to country and the Commonwealth, at the age of 21 and again on her coronation day in 1953. And she solemnly kept that promise throughout her extraordinary reign.  This 1 oz. fine silver coin is a heartfelt tribute to Queen Elizabeth II. Through a mix of elements that represent tradition and history, the coin honours Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years of service to Canada and the Commonwealth.


Designed by Canadian artist Laurie McGaw, the reverse is inspired by the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II wearing the Imperial State Crown on her coronation day (June 2, 1953). This representation of Queen Elizabeth II is flanked by flourishes that combine the floral emblems of Canada (maple leaf) and the United Kingdom (Tudor rose, Scottish thistle, Welsh daffodil and Irish shamrock). Double dated to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s historic reign, the tribute obverse is marked by a Tudor rose and features the four effigies of Queen Elizabeth II that have appeared on Canadian coins since 1953 (left to right): the 2003-2022 effigy by Susanna Blunt; the 1990-2002 effigy by Dora de Pédery-Hunt; the 1965-1989 effigy by Arnold Machin; and the 1953-1964 effigy by Mary Gillick.
