These are complemented by a coloured background landscape and a mirror finish sky. This coin has it all!

The effigy of Queen Elizabeth II can be found on the obverse and confirms the coin is legal tender. There is a mintage of just 1,000!

Each special coin arrives in a compact, themed box lined with black velvet. A Certificate of Authenticity is found on the back of the box along with the coin’s unique serial number.
