Struck in the ever-popular Royal Star format, this 99.9% pure silver legal tender coin celebrates the 80th anniversary of the first public speech delivered by Queen Elizabeth II.

Even though barely a teenager, the future Queen Elizabeth II demonstrated her leadership abilities during her first public speech in 1940 – during the Battle of Britain. Made on the BBC’s Children’s Hour radio show, Elizabeth’s speech was a heartfelt address to the children of the Commonwealth, many of whom were forced to live away from home due to the war. A flawless performance, touching the hearts of millions around the globe, the speech was an auspicious beginning to the public life of a woman who would become Britain’s longest reigning monarch.
