2013 Canada $50 Queen's Coronation Coloured 5oz. Fine Silver (No Tax)

Long Live the Queen!
Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

On a rainy Tuesday morning in London, England, on June 2, 1953, 26 year-old Queen Elizabeth II began her horse-drawn Coronation procession along the Thames River from Buckingham Palace to the Westminster Abbey.

As her golden coach wove its way across the city, the new Queen waved to tens of thousands of cheering subjects. Perhaps she thought about another young Queen Elizabeth, who had made a similar journey some 394 years ago. Her mind doubtless turned, as well, to her beloved father, King George VI, who had passed away a year and a half earlier. Like the weighty royal robes she wore, her place in England's history must have impressed itself powerfully upon the young sovereign.

As Queen Elizabeth II made her way into Westminster's Coronation Theatre, 8,000 dignitaries and well-wishers rose to greet the young Queen and the choir sang a triumphant chorus. For the first time in history, the awesome spectacle of a British coronation was broadcast around the world. Queen Elizabeth, seated in King Edward's Chair, wearing St. Edward's crown, holding the Sword and the Orb, and adorned in the golden raiment of royalty, assumed her full power as Queen to cries of 'God save the Queen!' and 'Long live the Queen!' from the four corners of her kingdom. As it had been for centuries, the ancient torch of kingly power was once again renewed.
