This is an auction for THE COUNTRY LIFE CORONATION ISSUE 1953 - a commemoration of the Coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II..

From Wikipedia:

"Elizabeth II (born 21 April 1926) is, and has been since her accession in 1952, Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, and Head of the Commonwealth. She is also Queen of twelve countries that have become independent since her accession. Her father acceded to the throne on the abdication of his brother Edward VIII in 1936, from which time she was the heir presumptive. Elizabeth's many historic visits and meetings include a state visit to the Republic of Ireland and reciprocal visits to and from the Pope. She has seen major constitutional changes and reigned through wars and conflicts involving many of her realms. She is the world's oldest reigning monarch as well as Britain's longest-lived. In 2015, she surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, to become the longest-reigning British monarch and the longest-reigning queen regnant in world history. Moments of sadness for her include the death of her father, aged 56; the assassination of Prince Philip's uncle, Lord Mountbatten; the breakdown of her children's marriages in 1992 (her annus horribilis); and the death in 1997 of her son's former wife, Diana, Princess of Wales. Elizabeth has occasionally faced republican sentiments and severe press criticism of the royal family, but support for the monarchy and her personal popularity remain high..."
