Not that we love Royals here in France (we tend to prefer them a bit "shortened" 😇), but how could we miss Lizzy's 70th coronation's anniversary ?

Please pile on the coins of hers you may have

God save the Queen !

Well, let's see, the last two rows of my small tray of non-ancient gold coins are all coins of Elizabeth II:

World Gold Tray Obvs 1.jpg

World Gold Tray Revs 2.jpg

(I still have all the cases they came in, but didn't photograph them.)

Fourth Row:

Elizabeth II AV Sovereign 1966 S.4125

Elizabeth II AV Sovereign 1980 proof in case S.4204

Elizabeth II AV Half-Sovereign 1985 proof in case S.4276

Elizabeth II AV Britannia 25 pounds 1987 proof S.4291 (Rev. Britannia standing w/trident & shield)

Elizabeth II AV Britannia 10 pounds 1998 proof in case S.4480 (Rev. same)

Elizabeth II AV Half-Sovereign 1998 proof in case S.4440

Fifth Row:

Elizabeth II AV Sovereign 1999 proof in case S.4430

Elizabeth II AV Half-Sovereign 2005 proof S.4442 (Rev. New depiction of St. George w/sword raised, dragon to left)

Elizabeth II AV Britannia 10 pounds 2007 proof in case S.4484 (Rev. Britannia seated w/trident & shield; lion at her feet)

Bahamas AV (.500 fine) $50 1973 Independence Commemorative proof: KM 48 (Pinches) (Rev. Two flamingos facing in front of sunset; INDEPENDENCE 1973 above; FIFTY DOLLARS below).
 

Also, the final medal in each of these two trays of British coronation and other royal medals (small and large, respectively) is an unofficial Elizabeth II coronation medal by Spink -- there was no official medal issued for her, the first monarch since before James I not to have one.

@DonnaMLI've said it before but it bears repeating...your collection of medals is top notch!

Here are a few QE2's I have photographs of:

A beautiful toner

A nice cameo

And 2 pennies of 2015 when they changed Lizzy's portrait from the 4th to the 5th version on 02 March. These both came out of a coinstar reject bin 😛

This one was a little outside of my interests as it is a 3d not Shilling but I liked the portrait and ended up with a set.

QUEEN ELIZABETH 1st silver hammered three pence dated 1578 ad,5TH issue,mm GREEK CROSS.

Imagine working in a job for 70 fricken years! (I had a hard enough time lasting 30 years!)

=> Congrats to Liz (long live the Queen)

I have lotsa Canadian coolness, including these two sweet bank-notes (in the first 1935  $20 note, she was merely Princess Liz ... but in the 1954  $1000 note, she had recently become Queen Elizabeth)

I agree, Paddy54 ... I also have a pretty neat Centennial Set (not as well protected as your set ... and sadly, I recall handling the coins "gingerly" when I was younger, because touching the coins is what it's all about, right? ... yah, I was destined for ancient coins)

I too have a canadian olympic set (that I have no picture of) sent by my Secret Santa some years ago, together with an ancient. Any idea who it was @Steve ?
