Wishing Her Majesty a Happy 90th Birthday
A celebratory £5 coin to mark this milestone moment
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.
The Royal Mint released a commemorative 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.
