New coins to mark Queen's reign

In just over a week, Queen Elizabeth II will surpass a record set by Queen Victoria, more than a century ago, and become the longest reigning monarch in British history.

To mark the occasion, the Royal Mint has produced a range of commemorative coins, reflecting the Queen's journey from her coronation, through decades of social change, to the position she holds today.
