Sometimes referred to as the Virgin Queen, the Queen of England and Ireland reigned from 1558 to her death in 1603. Although she received many marriage proposals, Elizabeth I remained unwed, hence her nickname. The advisors to the Queen played a major role in her environment – Elizabeth I gladly listened to them, discussed matters with them, and made the most important decisions about the ruling of the country together. One of the advisors was the well-known alchemist John Dee, a scholar who was said to speak the language of the angels. At some point during Elizabeth’s reign, he was even a personal astrologer to the Queen.
To show the noble, bright and courageous personality of this ruler, we have created a collectible coin of spectacular beauty. On the reverse side, the portrait of the queen is adorned with a natural white diamond that signifies the clarity and purity of the feminine nature, as well as the sharpness of mind. The coin is made according to state-of-the-art minting technologies, such as high relief and digital printing. This exceptional piece can be a perfect gift for a beloved woman, carrying the message that women are not only mothers or keepers of the hearth, but also courageous, exceptional and strong rulers. The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
