2012 Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee

For the past 60 years, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has reigned as Queen of New Zealand with grace and dignity. In 2012 New Zealand Post is joining the rest of the world in celebrating her Diamond Jubilee, with the release of this official Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Coin.
A design fit for a Queen

This pure one-ounce silver proof coin features Queen Elizabeth II in brilliant 3D relief. Based on a photograph, her gown and jewellery reflect the importance of her task – to broadcast her Christmas message to her people around the Commonwealth. The Queen’s Christmas message is a highly anticipated part of Christmas Day, and it typically touches on the year’s major events, as well as the sovereign’s personal milestones. In 1953 the message finished with a note of sympathy for the people of New Zealand in the wake of the Tangiwai rail disaster of the previous night.

New Zealand’s Christmas Tree

The left-hand side of this $1 coin features flowers from New Zealand’s beautiful pohutukawa tree (Metrosideros) in full colour. These native New Zealand flowers bloom at Christmas time in New Zealand, which falls at the height of summer. The pohutukawa tree is therefore commonly referred to as the New Zealand Christmas tree.

The official New Zealand emblem

The New Zealand emblem of the Diamond Jubilee is rendered in 3D relief on the right-hand side of the coin, adding to the official nature of this coin issue. The emblem features a diamond, inside which the Royal Cypher sits.
