Queen Victoria came to the throne aged 18 and died in 1901 when she was 81.  Buckingham Palace have calculated that Queen Victoria reigned for 23,226 days, 16 hours and 23 minutes – over 63 years.  However, Queen Elizabeth II, who became Queen aged 25 in 1952, is set to enter the history books when she overtakes Queen Victoria in September.  This is not the first record however as Her Majesty is already in the record books after becoming the longest living monarch and, according to the Guinness World Records, the Queen also holds the world record for most currencies featuring the same individual. 

The series of coins, one from each of the named Overseas Territories, feature a portrait of Her Majesty throughout her life.  A unique Privy Mark has also been added to each coin which has a connection to the portrait.  The designs are as follows:

Ascension Island
