In 2015 Queen Elizabeth surpassed Queen Victoria as the monarch with the longest reign in English history, serving 64 continuous years as queen. She begin her rule in 1952 when her father King George VI passed away. In England we were fortunate to find a small group of her very first sixpence coins dated 1953. Put back by a collector over 60 years ago, this design was only used in 1953 so these coins are treasured by collectors. Your first year sixpence will be shipped on a special presentation card with matching envelope, it features the beautiful Queen Elizabeth in her regal wedding dress, the reverse of the card tells the history of this famous, lucky wedding coin.
