Comments

This Fine Silver (.999) NCLT Proof 50 cent coin was released by the Royal Australian Mint to celebrate the 60 years since Queen Elizabeth II was crowned at her Coronation ceremony in 1953. It was released in a capsule in a plush case.
 

More than a year after her accession in 1952, Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in Westminster Abby. The Royal Australian Mint's commemorative 50c coin honours the 60th anniversary of that momentous event, which begun one of the longest reigns in British history.

The coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 2nd June 1953 captured the attention of the world in an unprecedented manner. In addition to the 8251 guests in attendance, an international audience of over twenty million watched the coronation ceremony on television. For many it was the first televised event they had ever seen. The coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a monarch who is cherished around the world, marked the commencement of a reign which has now spanned six decades.

A Copper-nickel version of this coin was released in a coincard.
