A commemorative coin depicting the Queen through her reign has been unveiled to mark her becoming the longest reigning monarch in British history.

The Royal Mint has designed the £20 fine silver face value coin depicting the Queen's journey through the five portraits that have appeared of her on UK coins.

Designed by Stephen Taylor, it shows the Queen all the way from her coronation to now.

Aren't the Cambridges usually up at Balmoral for a few days in September anyway? Or so Sebastian speculates, no doubt. That way he can claim accuracy if William and Kate are there on September 9th.

The Cambridges, as do most of the family, spend some time up in Balmoral over the summer, no surprises there!

If I remember right, he was given the use of a house on Balmoral grounds while he was at St. Andrews. Kind of like a bolt hole to go to and get away when he needed it.

Starkey - what an idiot. The Victorian Age was important because of what happened during her reign rather than because of her exclusively. Not all Victoria's choices were sound in hindsight. And in my opinion, I value Elizabeth all the more that she seems miles more emotionally stable than Victoria was. Imagine Victoria's temperament on the throne in our times

Heu... Seen the 'moderated' comments a LOT of people have paid attention and indeed, when Her Majesty ends her Reign, she will not only have been the longest reigning but probably also the most 'flat profiled' one. Her longetivity has brought her a place in history but I can go a long way with Mr Starkey, to be honest.

You used the word by yourself: in hindsight. You comment on Queen Victoria, with all what we know thanks to her own epistles and that of her contemporaries. To the public she was a stone-faced Queen. That is not different to Queen Elizabeth II. Prime Minister Cameron by accident revealed that Her Majesty purred like a cat. Prrrr Prrr.... But in public she simply showed her sphinx face. No one knows how she really is, maybe her diaries will tell. So the comparison between someone who is death over a century and a lady alive and kicking right now is not very fair I think.

David Starkey is a very rude, ignorant and controversial man.

He has criticized the Queen several times before. In 2007 he accused her of being a poorly educated philistine, and he has called Diana sad, hysterical, self abusing and extraordinarily destructive.

If the rumors are true that HM is very witty and excellent at mimicry, why would it be so hard to believe that when she steps out the door with her hat, gloves and handbag, she's in Queen mode. She's fulfilled her role with grace, dignity and rarely, if ever, steps out of line of what a regal Queen should be. We have had glimpses here and there over her reign that she enjoys life, family and children but for the most part, the roles of wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother are her doggedly guarded roles she keeps for private. She gives so much to the world, can we really begrudge her a private side?

Writers like those that fill their articles with "I can reveal" and "I have been told" and such idioms thrown here and there in their articles tip me off to a person that is self aggrandizing and puts himself/herself a couple notches up on a pedestal with basically cotton candy to support them. Exaggerations and innuendo and statements that stretch the truth are just tools to make themselves of more importance than they are and rarely care about the backlash on the people they talk about. The tabloids love them though and those that live to rant in the comments section cackle with glee but when it boils down to it, they actually don't mean a thing. Actions speak far louder than words and if you ask me, 63+ years of a reign will speak for itself over the years and in the history books.

Well, Mr Starkey is clearly provocative and direct but that of course does not rule out he might actually be pretty accurately close to reality. Who knows...
