Official 22-carat gold proof coin struck by The Royal Mint to celebrate the ninetieth birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. Issued by the States of Jersey, this Two Pound coin features a head and shoulders portrait of the Queen Mother's daughter, Queen Elizabeth II wearing the George IV State Diadem, facing right. The reverse centres on the crowned personal cypher of the Queen Mother, surrounded by Jersey Pink (Dianthus Gallicus) and the Jersey Fern (Anogramma Leptophylla). This collectors piece is struck in 15.98 grams of 916.7 fine gold and has a diameter of 28.40 millimetres making the coin similar in specification to old-style, pre-1997 UK Two Pound coins. It's one of just 90 issued in this presentation and comes in its original box of issue with an un-numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed. Born in 1900, Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon came to prominence when she married the future King George VI in 1923. Following the abdication of Edward VIII, she acted as Queen Consort between 1936 and 1952 when her daughter, Elizabeth II, acceded to the throne. In her widowhood she was affectionately known as the Queen Mother, and she maintained her lifelong passions for outdoor pursuits, especially fishing and horse-racing. Her birthdays were celebrated on several coins produced by The Royal Mint, including this rare, pre-owned gold 90th birthday piece from Jersey.
