A celebratory £5 coin to mark this milestone moment

Wishing Her Majesty a happy 90th birthday

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.

I bought these for my grandchildren. They are really too young to appreciate them but to my surprise they both new they were special & asked mum to put them in the safe.

Amazing Coin

The coin comes with a foldout presentation which discusses royal birthdays as well as some words from the designer of the reverse side. The coin is very nice to look at, and rich with detail, but a little larger than you might expect. Overall, this is a very nice product, and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to add it to their collection.
