Her Excellency the Honourable Kerry Sanderson AO, Governor of Western Australia, has welcomed the release of three Australian numismatic tributes marking Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday.
“The celebration of Her Majesty’s 90th birthday is a remarkable moment in history and The Perth Mint has created exceptional coin tributes for the occasion,” Her Excellency said.
“I am particularly delighted to see the craftsmanship showcasing branches of the golden wattle, our national flower which was depicted in the brooch presented to the Queen during her coronation tour of Australia in 1954, and the St Edward’s Crown symbolising our historical links with British constitutional and parliamentary heritage.”
The superb releases are the latest in a long line of Buckingham Palace-approved coins issued by The Perth Mint celebrating personal milestones of members of the Royal Family. Click here for more details.
