This Limited Edition collection of 1000 is beautifully illustrated by a British in-house design team, presented in a luxurious mahogany wood frame measuring approximately 20″ X 15″ and is issued with a numbered Limited Edition Certificate Of Authenticity.

Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne at the age of 25 when her father, King George VI passed away on February 6, 1952. Her coronation took place in Westminster Abbey on June 2, 1953. During WWII, she served as a volunteer ambulance driver in London during the blitz. She has now surpassed Queen Victoria as the longest reigning sovereign in the history of Great Britain.
