No monarch has ever marked as many Canadian milestones, and in 2022, Canadians have the opportunity to celebrate one of Her Majesty’s own: her Platinum Jubilee. Through its stately pairing of the Royal Cypher and Canadian maple leaves, this exquisite 1 oz. 99.95% pure platinum coin is an inspiring tribute to the Queen of Canada, as Her Majesty becomes our first sovereign to have reigned for 70 years. Extremely limited mintage of 325. GST/HST exempt.
The reverse design features Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Royal Cypher, with the letters “EII” ("Elizabeth II”) and “R” (“Regina,” meaning Queen) surmounted by a representation of St. Edward’s Crown. Her Majesty’s personal device is surrounded by boughs of Canadian maple leaves entwined with a ribbon designed by Canadian artist Katherine Rose-Desrochers. The double dates “1952 2022” commemorate the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the throne. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Did you know that Her Majesty is our sixth sovereign since Confederation in 1867 and the first to be separately proclaimed Sovereign of Canada. During her seven-decade reign, there have been 12 Canadian prime ministers and 13 governors general.
