This special commemorative release celebrates the 65th anniversary of the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II succeeded to the throne on 6 February 1952 after the death of her father, King George VI. As a result of the appropriate mourning period and the time needed to prepare for the elaborate ceremony, it was more than a year before her coronation took place, on 2 June 1953. In keeping with a 900-year tradition the coronation took place at Westminster Abbey. Abundant in religious and historic significance, the ceremony offered a sense of hope after years of post-war austerity. Her Majesty became the 39th sovereign and sixth queen to be crowned in the historic church.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
