The dates ’1961’ and ‘1997’ appear below her chin. This is paired with Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, introduced to British coinage the previous year as the fourth such official coinage effigy. This piece has a total weight of 28.28 grams and a diameter of 38.61 millimetres. It has a face value of £5 / Five Pounds. Its offered in its original velvet box from The Royal Mint with rose-design sleeve, information booklet and certificate of authenticity. 49,545 were struck worldwide.
