1629 the Dutch East India Company (VOC) vessel Batavia ran aground
Sixth portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II facing right wearing the King George IV State Diadem and the Victorian Coronation Necklace. Also depicted is the fighting between the survivors as a result of the mutiny and the Batavia before its ultimate demise.
The exquisite design of the reverse conveys two scenes to communicate the journey of the Batavia. With the image of the ship viewed upright, the Batavia is shown setting sail in its full glory. Flipping the coin to view the text of ‘1629’ and ‘Batavia’ upright depicts the ship in its final state capsized shortly after wrecking in 1629. The border encompassing the main design also incorporates unique design elements from the Batavia.
