At the start of the summer, the nation came together to celebrate the historic and remarkable 70-year reign of Queen Elizabeth II. It is a celebration now tinged with bitter sweetness, the monarch dying a few months later, at the age of 96.

To mark its seventieth birthday, many of the UK’s top designers and brands have created stunning keepsakes to mark the occasion.

With the death of the queen, these pieces have added poignancy. Naturally, interest in them grew again on the internet – the Royal Mint instituted an online queue to keep up with demand.

As we all know, not all royal souvenirs are created equal, with many cheap and fragile souvenirs also being produced with the Queen’s badge on it.

Here we have turned to well-known and respected brands to preserve the finest and most elegant keepsakes to remember and celebrate a historic reign.

A historic reign

Queen Elizabeth II, who died on September 8, 2022 at the age of 96, sat on the British throne for 70 years, making her the longest-reigning monarch in UK history.

During her time as Queen, Elizabeth oversaw 15 Prime Ministers, met 12 US Presidents, five Popes and the leaders of every other major religion in the UK.

In 1977, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her silver jubilee – then her rubies, gold and diamonds in 1991, 2002 and 2012.

Note: Demand for Jubilee souvenirs is very high, many items, especially Royal Mint commemorative coins, are sold out and are being restocked.
