Queen Victoria often spoke of her great adoration for Ireland, visiting a number of times throughout her reign. She reportedly fell in love with the stunning scenes of Killarney in County Kerry and her affection was so great that a number of attractions still popular today are owed to the experiences of Queen Victoria’s’ visits.

The national park in Killarney is home to Ladies’ view, a stunning lookout spot over the lakes of Killarney visited by Victoria. It takes its name from her ladies-in-waiting who were taken to the spot and were so enamoured it was named after them.

Victoria’s visit in 1861 is also the main reason for the infamy of Muckross House and Gardens. The Royal party stayed there for 2 nights, prompting the owners to elaborately furnish it with tapestries, mirrors, Persian carpets and specially woven curtains which are still hanging to this day.

When Queen Victoria passed away, we mourned for what we now know to be our nation’s last ever queen and so it is no surprise that Irish collectors are hugely interested in coin rarities from this much-loved monarch’s reign.

This coin that is available to you now would have circulated during her last visit and features her final portrait to be issued.
