Her Majesty The Queen has celebrated many landmark moments during her long and eventful reign – birthdays, jubilees and wedding anniversaries – and we have enjoyed each happy occasion with her. Now we celebrate with the Royal Family once again as Queen Elizabeth II becomes the first British monarch to reach a 90th birthday. As this much loved public figure reaches another remarkable milestone, at The Royal Mint we are delighted to release a commemorative £5 coin for the occasion.
To wish Her Majesty every happiness as royal history is made, acclaimed artist Christopher Hobbs has turned to her love of flowers for inspiration, his design approved by The Queen herself. As this is a more personal occasion, the artist has filled the classical wreath with natural rather than heraldic roses, with each one different to the next. Struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard, this £5 coin is housed in its own display folder for safekeeping.
