As early as 1879, the Queen Victoria discussed her original idea to update the design of her portrait in the circulating gold coins in UK. The queen asked the sculptor Joseph Edgar Boehm to design a new effigy of the Queen, which will be used on future silver and gold coins, including colonial gold. Boehm proceeded at a very slow pace, during several years. He made a large number of changes during the preparation of the new effigy. As the work was continuing to proceed at such a slow pace, the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria – from her accession to the throne in June 1887 – arrived. Hence, the introduction of a new coinage to coincide with the “Golden Jubilee” of Elizabeth II.
