The Royal Canadian Mint released a new gold coin to commemorate the bicentennial anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth. The 99.99 pure gold coin weighs 7.8 grams and having a diameter of 20 mm. Her Majesty Queen Victoria was born on May 24, 1819 at Kensington Palace in London and died at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, on 22 January 1901. Victoria Day is an annual holiday in Canada in honor of Her Majesty Queen Victoria’s birthday.

Princess Victoria is the only daughter of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn, fourth son of George III. Her father, Prince Edward (Edward Augustus) died on 23 January 1820 and Princess Victoria became heir to the throne. On 1837, after the death of William IV, Princess Victoria became Queen at the age of 18. Thus the “Victorian Era” started from June 20, 1837 until her death on January 22, 1901. Her Majesty Queen Victoria played a major role in forming the Canadian confederation and also called as the “Mother of Confederation”. There are many land marks in Canada named after Queen Victoria – Roads, cities like Victoria in British Columbia, Regina in Saskatchewan (in Latin, “Regina” means Queen) etc.

The reverse of the coin is a reproduction of a profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Victoria drawn by the Victorian engraver Richard James Lane from the Library and Archives of Canada. The Design is framed by a floral pattern with maple leaves. The reverse also includes the double dates “1819 – 2019” to mark the bicentennial of the birth of Her Majesty Queen Victoria and the word “CANADA”. The obverse of the 2019 gold coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
