From Downies! Another distinctive 'Royal Star' shaped coin! Order today!

Even though barely a teenager, the future Queen Elizabeth II demonstrated her leadership abilities with aplomb during her first public speech in 1940 – at the height of 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 with Nazi Germany. 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.
