2023 50c Elizabeth Regina - HM Queen Elizabeth II Commemoration Fine Silver Proof Coin

The Royal Australian Mint is honoured to commemorate Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with a beautiful 50c coin design in both fine silver proof and uncirculated finishes.

These coins celebrate the Queen's seven decades of devotion and service, as well as the indelible mark she has left on Australian numismatics.

In 1947 a young Princess Elizabeth made a speech that was broadcast around the world in celebration of her twenty-first birthday.

In it, the young royal dedicated her life to the service of the Commonwealth.'I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong'.

These words would prove to be truly prophetic when, five years later she would ascend the throne as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, starting a historic reign of over seventy years - the longest of any British Monarch.

Historically, coins bear witness to a Monarch's reign with their royal effigies appearing on the obverse. Her Late Majesty's seven decades of service is numismatically symbolised through her six effigies to have appear on Australian coins.These stunning portraits are the focal point of the reverse design of both silver proof and uncirculated versions of this coin. With them the Royal Australian Mint commemorates the momentous Second Elizabethan Era.

The coin's reverse features a central design depicting the six effigies of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to have appeared on Australian coins, fanned above the Queen's royal cypher.

The central design is framed with lily of the valley, one of the Queen's favorite flowers and golden wattle, Australia's national floral emblem.The coin's obverse features the Memorial Effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark on the obverse.
