Over the past 95 years, Britain has seen it all – it has been a time of gale-force change but, throughout it all, there has been one constant presence – one permanent anchor that in her “innate sense of calm and perspective” has held the nation together – Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Since her extraordinary life began at 2:40am on the 21st of April 1926, Queen Elizabeth II has reigned for 68 illustrious years. She has visited over 128 countries, worked with 7 Archbishops, enjoyed 73 years of an enduring marriage, mothered 4 children, 8 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.

Her portrait has graced the last of Britain’s pre-decimal and the first of decimal currency, appeared on banknotes in almost every single continent across the globe and in the UK, there are over 237 streets named after her. And now, in her 95th birthday year she has become the inspiration for what is one of the most beautifully poignant half soveriegns.

Struck in the traditional 22-carat gold to the highest possible standard – Proof quality, this remarkable half sovereign has been inspired by what is widely regarded as the most beautiful coin design ever issued – William Wyon’s ‘ Una and the Lion.’ Originally struck as a £5 gold coin to mark the beginning of the illustrious reign of Queen Elizabeth II’s great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria in 1837, ‘Una and the Lion’ symbolises great beauty, strength and endurance – three attributes shared by our current queen – Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

It felt only fitting that as Elizabeth surpassed Victoria as Britain’s longest-reigning monarch in 2015, that now for her 95th birthday, she should take her place amongst this world-renowned and spectacular design.
