Pobjoy Mint is excited to announce the release of a brand new 50p to mark the Bi-Centenary of Queen Victoria featuring the Royal British Coat of Arms of this well-loved monarch.
Also known as the Royal Arms, they can be traced back to the first arms of the kings of England and Scotland. Various alterations occurred over the years as the monarchs changed or other realms were acquired.
The accession of Queen Victoria ended the personal union between the United Kingdom and Hanover, as Salic law prevented women from ascending the Hanoverian throne. The Escutcheon of Hanover was removed and the Royal Arms remained the same. There was no attempt to alter the royal Arms to reflect later titles acquired by the British monarch such as Emperor of India. The harp of the United Kingdom of Ireland remained despite the partition in 1921, to represent Northern Ireland.
The design features the official Coat of Arms of Queen Victoria. The value ‘50’ is shown at the base of the design. The obverse of the coin features Pobjoy Mint Effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Born on the 24th May 1819 at Kensington Palace in London, Queen Victoria was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 20th June 1837 until her death on the 22nd January 1901. Her reign of 63 years and seven months was longer than that of any of her predecessors and was known as the Victorian Era.
Queen Victoria previously held the title for longest-reigning monarch until Queen Elizabeth II broke her record, with a current reign of 67 years (as of 2019).
