Silver Coin Celebrates Queen Victoria’s 200th Birthday

2019 marks the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth. Becoming Queen at the age of 18, Victoria reigned from 1837 to 1901 – a total of 64 years – and was the longest-reigning monarch in British history until she was surpassed by Great Britain’s current monarch, her great-great-granddaughter Queen Elizabeth II. Synonymous with the British Empire’s industrial and economic expansion of the 1800s, her name is used to describe the times – The Victorian Era, an age when it was said the sun never set on the British Empire.

To pay tribute to the bicentenary of Victoria’s birth, Great Britain’s world-renowned Royal Mint has issued a series of special commemoratives that pay tribute to the woman whose children populated the Royal Houses of Europe and thus provided her with the unofficial title of “the Grandmother of Europe.” Struck in 28.28 grams of 92.5% British Sterling silver, this legal-tender £5 coin is a smashing example of numismatic quality and art. It depicts a young Queen Victoria surrounded by the historic innovations that occurred during her lifetime, including the Penny Farthing bicycle, the telephone, the SS Great Eastern (then the largest ship ever built), and a train representing the first-ever British Royal train journey in 1842. Rounding out the design is a special edge lettering that reads “Workshop of the World.”

Your 2019 Great Britain Silver Queen Victoria 200th Anniversary Proof is a masterpiece of the minter’s art. It was expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields.

Coin collectors, history buffs, royal watchers and silver stackers will all be vying for these coins. But with a limited mintage of just 7,500, there are far too few to go around. Hurry; add a piece of the Victorian Era to your collection now with the 2019 Great Britain Silver Queen Victoria 200th Anniversary Proof!
