The 95th Birthday Of The Queen Coins
In 2021, Her Majesty The Queen celebrates the latest milestone in a remarkable life as she becomes the first British monarch to reach their 95th birthday.
To mark this historic event and personal achievement for The Queen, The Royal Mint has struck a range of official United Kingdom coins.
Featuring two new designs, all the coins bear the inscription ‘My Heart and My Devotion’, referencing a promise The Queen made in her 1957 Christmas speech and has kept ever since.
The £5 coin is available as a Gold Proof, Silver Proof, Silver Proof Piedfort, and Brilliant Uncirculated edition.
The two-ounce gold, two-ounce silver, and quarter-ounce gold Proof editions also feature Timothy Noad’s design.
In addition to these, the collection includes fine gold and silver editions, which feature a design created by sculptor Gary Breeze.
His richly symbolic ‘flourish’ design represents The Queen’s nine decades with nine roses, whilst 54 leaves signify the countries of the Commonwealth.
The sculptor’s coin design for The Queen’s 95th birthday is a beautiful, floral arrangement but there are very carefully considered elements. There are nine roses, one for each decade The Queen has lived through, and 54 leaves on the face of the coin, each representing a country of the Commonwealth, one of Her Majesty’s greatest legacies.
