During the nineteenth century Britain’s overseas territories became “the empire on which the sun never sets”.

As its figurehead for more than 60 years, Queen Victoria gave her name to countless locations around the world – an Australian State, the capital of a Canadian province, and a spectacular African waterfall are examples that spring to mind.

In our latest challenge for Perth Mint collectors, we’re testing your knowledge of other famous places and landmarks named in honour of Victoria.

Five successful entrants drawn at random will each win a magnificent Queen Victoria 175th Anniversary of Coronation 2013 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
