From a young woman inheriting the throne, to a queen whose commitment to her duties has won her the respect and admiration of people all over the world, Her Majesty The Queen has been a constant for the nation through decades of social change. Now, as she turns 90 – becoming the first British monarch to celebrate such a landmark birthday – the nation will celebrate with the Royal Family as we have done on so many happy occasions. When the street parties are over many will want a lasting reminder of this special moment in history.
At The Royal Mint – the home of every official United Kingdom coin struck during The Queen’s reign – we have issued a £20 fine silver coin to mark this historic event. The latest £20 coin in our Commemorative Fine Silver Coin series features a celebratory wreath of roses created by Christopher Hobbs, inspired by Her Majesty’s love of flowers and approved by The Queen herself. The coin is struck in fine silver, finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard, and is available in strictly limited numbers.
This coin, celebrating Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday, is a commemorative coin.
Commemorative coins are generally treasured for their aesthetic and collectable value, or for their rarity. Collectors appreciate the detailed hand-finished processes and expert skills used to make them.
All coins made by The Royal Mint are legal tender, whether commemorative or circulating. However, only circulating legal tender coins are designed to be spent and traded at businesses and banks.
This coin is a commemorative coin so banks, post offices and shops will not accept them.
If individual customers wish to discuss the return of this coin now or in the future please contact our customer services team on 0345 6088 300.
