Perth Mint’s first ‘intaglio’ coin celebrates Britain’s longest reigning monarch

Posted by Blog Team on

The intaglio is an artistic technique commonly associated with sculpture, whereby an image is created by cutting, carving, or engraving into the surface. It has been wonderfully employed on this 1oz silver piedfort-sized commemorative, which celebrates Queen Elizabeth II on becoming the longest reigning monarch in British history. The coin’s reverse design elements, including the Queen’s effigy and patterns of Tudor roses, are impressed (or incused) into the coin table for an unusual and pleasing effect.
