To commemorate the Queen’s 95th Birthday this year we are issuing a new 50 pence coin on behalf of the British Indian Ocean Territory.
The coin features Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on horseback during a Trooping the Colour Ceremony. Trooping the Colour is a ceremony performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies to mark the official birthday of the British Sovereign. This ceremony has been a tradition for over 260 years and it takes place in June every year.
This year The Queen will be celebrated on 12th June and taking part will be up to 1450 soldiers of the Household Division and The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery, along with up to 400 musicians from the Massed Bands. Over 240 soldiers from the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards will line The Mall. The parade route extends from Buckingham Palace along The Mall to Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall and back again.
This coin is part of the Lifetime of the Queen Coin Collection.
The ceremony, also known as the Queen's Birthday Parade, is an impressive display of pageantry by the Queen’s personal troops, the Household Division, on Horse Guards Parade, with Her Majesty the Queen herself attending and taking the salute.
Her Majesty the Queen has taken the salute at every parade since her accession to the throne in 1952 other than in 1955 when there was a national rail strike. In 2020 the event almost got canceled due to the national lockdown but instead, a scaled-down parade took place in Windsor. The coin is available in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish and Proof Sterling Silver.
The obverse of the coin is an Effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
