Queen Victoria was born Alexandrina Victoria on 24 May, 1819, at Kensington Palace, London. She was the only daughter of Edward, Duke of Kent, the fourth son of George III. Her father died shortly after her birth and she became heir to the throne as the three uncles ahead of her in the line of succession had no surviving legitimate children.

Ascending the throne in 1837, at the age of 18, when her uncle King William IV died, Queen Victoria reigned for almost 65 years. In that time, Britain’s Empire expanded to cover about one fifth of the Earth’s surface, making Queen Victoria empress to almost a quarter of the world’s population. Queen Victoria began to shape the United Kingdom’s political landscape into that of a modern constitutional monarchy, whereby political power shifted away from the sovereign to parliament.

DESIGN

The reverse depicts four effigies of Queen Victoria that have featured on Australian coinage between 1857 and 1901. These include the ‘Young Head Portrait’, ‘Jubilee Portrait’, ‘Veiled Head Portrait’ and ‘Sydney Mint Type II Portrait’. With the St Edward’s Crown in the centre, the coin’s reverse design also includes two stylised wattle branches, the inscription ‘200th ANNIVERSARY QUEEN VICTORIA’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The obverse depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2019 year-date and the weight, fineness and monetary denomination.

PRESENTATION

Each gold coin is housed in a Perth Mint classic display case and packaged within an illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
