The 2015 Longest Reigning British Monarch Cupro Nickel Coin Coin Quality

On 9th September 2015, Her Majesty will pass the record set by her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria to achieve the accolade of becoming the longest ever reigning Monarch in British History.  Queen Victoria came to the throne aged 18 and died in 1901 when she was 81.  Buckingham Palace have calculated that Queen Victoria reigned for 23,226 days, 16 hours and 23 minutes – over 63 years.  However, Queen Elizabeth II, who became Queen aged 25 in 1952, is set to enter the history books when she overtakes Queen Victoria in September.  This is not the first record however as Her Majesty is already in the record books after becoming the longest living monarch and, according to the Guinness World Records, the Queen also holds the world record for most currencies featuring the same individual.
 
Ascension Island has released a coin to commemorate the historical event of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II becoming the Longest Reigning British Monarch. The coin features a 1957 portrait from the first televised Christmas Message with the Privy Mark of Sandringham from where the message was televised. The obverse of this Uncirculated Cupro Nickel coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS and is also available in Proof Sterling Silver. There are three more coins in this series from the British Virgin Islands, Falkland Islands and the South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands.
