2001 - Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - 75th Birthday

75 years before the year of issue, on 21 April 1926, Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was born.

Today, as Queen, she presides over a hugely different nation from the one she was born into that spring day in 1926. 

The design, by David Cornell, depicts the Queen in informal attire, framed by detailed engravings of a selection of flowers representing the four constituent parts of the United Kingdom, namely the rose, the thistle, the daffodil and the pimpernel.

The obverse of the coins feature the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf.

This coin is available in £5 Cupro-Nickel.
