During the royal commonwealth tour of 1952 in Nairobi, Kenya - Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary and her husband Prince Phillip were staying at the famous African Treetops resort. The royal couple climbed up a tree to where they would stay for the evening, unaware of what the following day would bring. Elizabeth's father, King George VI passed away in his slumber and from that moment, a new monarch was born and at just 25 years old Elizabeth came down from that resort as a Queen. In 1953, the official coronation for Queen Elizabeth II took place in Westminster Abbey and on that momentous occasion, Her Majesty made an oath to govern the people, uphold law and justice and to maintain and preserve the Church of England.
While this was made in front of family, world leaders and peers of the land, most importantly for Her Majesty, it was an oath made before God. Having already broken many of records over the years, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II became Britain's longest reigning monarch on 9 September 2015 when she surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria. This solid 22-carat Gold sovereign is an enduring tribute to that very moment.
