In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee (70 years of service). What an incredible milestone!
To honour this occasion, we used crests provided by the Lord Chamberlain's office at Buckingham Palace, and from Canadian Heritage to create a limited edition commemorative geocoin.
This 45mm coin displays both the Canadian Platinum Jubilee Emblem, and the British Queen's Platinum Jubilee emblem.
Over the past 7 decades, Queen Elizabeth II has been a constant presence in the lives of Canadians and has witnessed the growth and significant change in Canadian society. The Queen has cultivated enduring ties with Canadians over years of connecting with our rich cultures and traditions.
Throughout her reign, The Queen has made 22 official tours of Canada - more than any other Commonwealth country! Her Majesty has said in multiple speeches that she always regarded Canada as home and shares in the pride we take in our achievements.
