Those who witnessed Queen Elizabeth’s 1954 Royal Tour of Australia will never forget the excitement of those times. Her Majesty, with Duke of Edinburgh, became the first British monarch to visit Australia. Never before had we welcomed a dignitary of such stature and importance to our nation. What became immediately apparent was the warmth of the newly crowned Queen. Fascinated by the possibilities held by Australia, Her Majesty engaged with people from all walks of life to learn what made Australia so special. It was the start of an enduring bond which became stronger with each new royal tour. The Royal Wattle Tour 1954 Ten Crowns is exclusive to The Bradford Exchange!

Today we celebrate the 65th anniversary of that historic first tour with a new crown coin capturing the pageantry of those heady times. Nothing less than an ultra-rare ten crowns could honour the 58 days, which changed Australia. Harmony and contrast. Spectacle and simplicity. Our “Royal Wattle Tour 1954 Ten Crowns” is a study in the minter’s art like no other. Her Majesty’s heraldic crest forms the centrepiece of the design. It was a symbol, which appeared throughout the tour, on official programmes and in the press announcing the arrival of the royal couple. To a generation who was there to see Her Majesty, it is the very manifestation of her presence and now shines with renewed importance in the gleam of layered 24-carat gold. As a tasteful counterpoint, four minted portraits of the Queen encircle the crest. Rendered in valuable rhodium-platinum, they are based on tour photos of the jubilant monarch, which were shown around the world. A red enamel sash unites the four cameos, which is accented with a genuine Swarovski crystal. Finely-cast sprays of wattle stand proudly on either side of the design as a symbol of unity between her majesty and Australia. High demand is expected so don’t delay, order yours now!
