Commemorated jubilatory jubilees
The term “jubilee” has sometimes been a little misappropriated and its definition appears to vary depending on whether it is used in reference to the Pope, royalty, or a monumental invention...
Whatever the case may be, it is now high time to salute the majesty of such events that normally occur only twice a century and to celebrate these various years with some pieces which are elegantly struck and certainly work a look.
From Elizabeth II to Beatrix, via the Pope, the Prince of Liechtenstein, Victoria, Franz Joseph and the others, the parliamentarians, the naturalists, the Catholics, the Protestants, and Peugeot’s diesel engine, whether you live in Lourdes or Kathmandu: here is a splendid collection of coins and medals commemorating various and varied jubilees just for you!
