2006 Canada 25-cent Coin - 80th Birthday of the Queen

Celebrating her Majesty Queen Elizabeth on her 80th birthday Princess Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926 and was just 10 years old when she unexpectedly became heir presumptive to the throne.

Almost immediately, she began to prepare for her future role and her official duties grew steadily throughout her teens. When The King's health began to deteriorate in 1951, the young princess readily assumed many of her father's responsibilities.

By the time Princess Elizabeth acceded to the throne at the age of 26, she was a seasoned public figure, her years of service a strong indicator of what the Commonwealth could expect of its new queen. Indeed, on her 80th birthday, Queen Elizabeth II is one of the world's most popular monarchs. For more than 50 years, she has served the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland as well as the Commonwealth which includes Canada and more than 40 other countries.
