The British Pobjoy Mint has released a new 50 pence piedfort silver coin to honor the bicentenary anniversary of Queen Victoria. Queen Victoria was the Queen of the United Kingdom and Ireland from 20th June 1837 until her death on the 22nd of January 1901.

Known as the Victorian era, her reign of 63 years and seven months was longer than that of any of her predecessors. It was an era of industrial, cultural, political, scientific, and military change within the United Kingdom, and was marked by a great expansion of the British Empire.

The reverse of the coin features the official Royal British Coat of Arms of Queen Victoria. The face value of the coin, 50, appears at the base of the design.

The obverse exhibits an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the year of issue of the coin, 2019.

This coin is crafted from 16g of 999 pure silver. It has an extremely limited mintage of only 500 pieces worldwide.

The accession of Queen Victoria ended the personal union between the United Kingdom and Hanover as the Salic law prevented women from ascending the Hanoverian throne.
