2016 Queen Elizabeth II's Ninetieth Birthday Five Pound Crown Piedfort Platinum Proof Coin

from
£3,750.00
One of just 87 issued! This piedfort platinum proof Five Pound coin celebrates Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birthday; a landmark event as she became the first British monarch to reach their ninth decade. On 12 June 2016, 10,000 guests gathered for a street party on The Mall in London to celebrate the occasion. The guests were chosen to recognise The Queen's patronage of over 600 charities and organisations, in the UK and wider Commonwealth. As well as parties and events across the country, The Royal Mint released a collection of commemorative coins and sets to honour the occasion, including this remarkable platinum £5 Crown. The coin's obverse features Jody Clark's portrait of The Queen which was introduced the previous year. Its reverse features a design from acclaimed painter, sculptor and illustrator, Christopher Hobbs that was approved by Her Majesty. It shows The Queen's royal cypher surrounded by a wreath of roses which, according to the artist, was 'inspired by the heraldic rose of England and The Queen's love of flowers'. Feminine and strong, the nine roses, all slightly different, represent her nine decades of life. Around the edge are inscribed the words 'FULL OF HONOUR AND YEARS'. This pre-owned Queen's 90th Birthday coin is struck in 94.20 grams of 99.95% platinum with a diameter of 38.61 millimetres. It's offered in its original packaging from The Royal Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed.
