As well as the commemorative collection, the Royal Mint Museum is also hosting a unique coin display at its Wales HQ in celebration of the anniversary. To illustrate a timeline of British queens, a selection of impressive historic coins has been curated, from the silver groat issued during Queen Mary’s reign (the first example of a female monarch being depicted on coinage) to ‘Una and the Lion’, portraying Victoria herself on what is often described as one of the most beautiful coins in the world.
In addition to this historic celebration, The Royal Mint is offering readers an exclusive 30% discount across selected royalty, military and British interest coins (excluding the Queen Victoria 200 range).
