LONGEST REIGNING MONARCH – 2015 – FRACTIONAL SOVEREIGN SET OF 4
September 9th 2015 marked another magnificent milestone in the life and reign of our beloved monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. On this day she became the longest reigning monarch of Britain, surpassing the record held by her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria; a record that had been held for over a century!
To recognize this historic landmark, this superb set of Sovereigns has been issued by the Commonwealth Mint as a lasting tribute. The reverse features a striking likeness of Her Majesty from her Coronation day against a backdrop of the famous window from Westminster Abbey.
The obverse features a new effigy created by renowned American sculptor Joel Iskovitz and this was commissioned in celebration of Her Majesty’s record-breaking long rule.
