On 21 April Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 90th birthday and to mark the event we present an image from the archives of the Press Association from every year of her life. To celebrate this momentous occasion, a brand new golden coin has been issued – The Queen Elizabeth II 90th Birthday £5 Coin, designed by Luigi Badia. The reverse depicts the union and royal standard flags with 90 at the centre and the royal cypher above, encircled by the words Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the date of her 90th birthday.
For the silver coin, the reverse features an oak wreath and crown symbolising long life and the House of Windsor with EIIR at the centre, encircled by the words Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the years 1926-2016. Struck in sterling silver to a pristine proof finish, your coin will arrive in a wooden presentation box with a numbered certificate of authenticity. With a worldwide edition limit of just 2,500 you will need to act quickly to ensure you secure one of them.
The Queen Elizabeth II 90th Photographic Coin has been expertly plated in 24 carat gold and struck to a Proof finish. Featuring a full-colour portrait taken by renowned royal photographer Mark Stewart on the day Her Majesty became the longest reigning monarch, this coin is the perfect Royal memorabilia for any collector. This coin is limited to just 19,500 worldwide. All these coins are exclusively available from The Westminster Collection.
