The Queen's 1954 visit to Australia was the first tour made by a reigning British monarch. Struck in honour of the occasion, the 1954 Royal Visit Florin is a regal sight in Extremely Fine condition.

A Royal Visit to Australia had been in planning since 1949, but there was one serious problem: the king had fallen ill. His daughter Elizabeth eventually stepped in and embarked on the tour in his place as heir presumptive. But she didn't make it to Australia. The tour was cut short with the tragic news that her father had passed away.

It wasn't until 1954 that the now-Queen Elizabeth II finally landed on Australian soil. She was greeted with an enthusiastic welcome as crowds teemed at Sydney's Farm Cove. Over the gruelling 58-day tour, an estimated 75% of Australians lined up for a glimpse of the young monarch. Australia was smitten.

Struck by the Melbourne Mint to honour the Queen's visit, the 1954 Royal Visit Florin is a unique, one-year-only type. It's also the only Queen Elizabeth II predecimal commemorative to have ever been released. With its reverse design of a lion and kangaroo standing shoulder-to-shoulder, the 1954 Royal Visit Florin honours this historic occasion perfectly.
