To Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Canada is her “home away from home,” a vital land that she has visited 22 times during her reign - more than any other Commonwealth nation! During her most recent visit in 2010, Her Majesty displayed her affection for Canada by wearing a maple leaves brooch that was originally presented to her grandmother, Queen Mary (then Duchess) during a royal tour in 1901.

It is unknown how long the brooch had been hidden away in the royal vault, but one thing is certain: the gorgeous piece of jewelry evoked a sense of home so poignant that the Queen was inspired to wear it as an outward expression of the warmth she feels for her second home - the home of the maple leaf! This beautiful coin returns that gesture with an exquisite reproduction of the brooch she wore complete with a genuine Swarovski pearl gemstone.

Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II
Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21, 1926 and was just ten 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, King George VI's, responsibilities.

With her father's passing in 1952, Princess Elizabeth went into mourning and then acceded to the throne at the relatively young age of twenty-six on June 2, 1953. By this time she was a seasoned public figure, her years of service a strong indicator of what the Commonwealth could expect of its new queen. Today about 128 million people live in the 16 countries of which she is head of state.

Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, in her official coronation photographic portrait by renowned artist Dorothy Wilding.On that rainy day in June, 1953, an estimated three million people lined the streets of London to catch a glimpse of the Coronation procession, while millions more crowded around newly-purchased television sets to watch the investiture of Britain's youngest sovereign since Queen Victoria. For many, the Coronation represented the beginning of a hopeful new Elizabethan era.

In her glittering Coronation portrait, Elizabeth wears the Imperial State Crown. She holds the Royal regalia incorporating the Sovereign’s scepter-with-cross, representing temporal power, and the Sovereign’s orb, symbolizing the Monarch's role as Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England. On her right hand, Her Majesty wears the Coronation ring and on both wrists are golden armills. Please see the article at the end of this presentation for more information and images of the Crown Jewels, such as Elizabeth wears in this portrait.

Indeed, on her Diamond JubileeQueen Elizabeth II is arguably the world's most popular and best-known monarch. She is currently the second-longest-serving head of state in the world, and the longest-serving British or English monarch in history. Her reign of nearly two-thirds of a century has seen twelve different Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom. For well over sixty years, she has served the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland as well as the British Commonwealth, which includes Australia, Canada and more than forty other countries.
