2012 Canada 50 Cent - The Queen's Diamond Jubilee (1952-2012) - Royal Cypher Silver Plated Coloured Coin

The year 2012 marks the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II - a celebration of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty's accession to the throne in 1952. In 2012, celebrations in Canada and around the world acknowledge Queen Elizabeth II's lifetime dedication and service to her subjects, to the Commonwealth, and to innumerable charitable causes.

The Royal Cypher: A Sovereign's Monogram
A royal cypher is a monarch's identifier, much like a coat of arms. Cyphers have been used by British royals since the time of Henry VIII. They generally feature the monarch's initial and titles, often beneath a symbol of rule, such as a crown. Unlike monograms that interweave letters, royal cyphers display each letter distinctly.

Queen Elizabeth II's monogram, EIIR, features her initials, E II (Elizabeth II), and her title initial, R (Regina, Latin for Queen), below an image of St. Edward's Crown which has been used for British coronations since the restoration of the monarchy and coronation of Charles II in 1661.

The Royal Cypher is imprinted in the insignia of orders, decorations, medals and on badges. In Canada - a constitutional monarchy that recognizes Her Majesty as its head of state-it is common for this cypher to be surrounded by a wreath or garland of maple leaves, symbolizing the unique union of the Queen's power and the sovereignty of the Canadian people.

Special Features:
- A larger coin plated in silver, packaged in a colourful folder featuring the image of The Queen wearing a Maple Leaf brooch and waving to Canadians during her official visit to Canada on Canada Day 2010.
- Coin features the Official Diamond Jubilee Emblem for Canada
- Design approved by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Coin is encapsulated and presented in a colourful folder, protected by plastic sleeve.
