The Queen is Dead Long Live The King

Coins | Mike

Some would call her a great woman Some would not.I'm sorry she passed away. That's coming from someone born in Ireland. Centuries of troubles. I must say she was a giving person. To charities and the poor. She was the one besides Tony Blair to apologize for some of the atrocities committed on the Irish.
But she ran here country even after the death of her husband. My heart went out to her when I saw her sitting alone in the church pew. She has done many great things. We can't forget that. Till the age of 96. I was lucky to get the coin of the five portraits of her from when she became Queen in 1953

She went to the comenwelths of her country. You can of say everything in a blog about a woman who ran a country in good times and bad. So I will leave it at that. God bless her and keep her in his arms. The two coins the obverse were the same when she became Queen . She was a rock!!


..Update: I get the Irish Post everyday. According to the British papers that looking to end the Monarchy and there commonwealth's.




....Please enlarge the pictures. The last picture is the last picture of the Queen.

I shared a birthday with her and wrote her a birthday letter in 2020. She even took the time to write back! And yes I am talking about Her Majesty the Queen. I was sad to see her go.

Earlier in the day I read an article about British currency and coinage stating that it would still be honored as legal tender. Which one would expect until the coronation of Charles III at which point there would be an image change. This is going to be interesting, not only for the Australian Wedge-tailed Eagles I collect, but for the Canadian and several other nations under British rule. While I'm somewhat excited at what will be, it's going to be tough not seeing her on them any longer. Perhaps 2023 will have two designs on all sovereign coinage? This opens the possibility for some very low mintage totals across the board.

Long Beard, the Bank of England the and Royal Mint stated they will produce currency and coin with Elizabeth II until the 10 days of mourning are over and then begin producing currency and coin with the image of Charles III. The Bank of England and the royal mint will begin replacing currency and coin as it is produced and the current images of Elizabeth will be removed from circulation. The Canadian Bank and reserve bank of Australia “currently” have no plans of replacing coin and currency that have Elizabeth II on it.

She was a great and wonderful monarch. I was truly saddened to hear of her passing. God Save the Queen (one more time for posterity). She must have appeared on more coins than anyone in history.

Quite the life that will definitely cement her place in history. Eloquently put my friend. Coins with her likeness will be in demand, as new coins will start depicting King Charles III before long.

Mike, This blog from a proud Irishman says tons more than you could have written. I liked the woman and feel bad about how all the tragedies of her family she was forced to endure. Nice sentiments. A great blog after you Pope coins. A man of peace. Hey that coin reminds me of some of your old tokens. Cool.
