Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother saw the growth and continuation of the British Royal Family throughout the entirety of the 20th century. Born August 4, 1900, as Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon, Elizabeth would grow up and marry the future King George VI of England.
Upon her husband’s ascension to the throne in 1936, Elizabeth became the Queen of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth. She was the last female member of the British Royal Family to serve as the Empress of India. Following the death of her husband in 1952 and the ascension of her daughter to the throne as Queen Elizabeth II, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon would become known as the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother to avoid confusion with her daughter.
Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse side of 1990 5 Pound Proof British Gold Queen Mother Birth Coins. This right-profile effigy of Elizabeth II is the third-generation design from Raphael Maklouf. A timeless vision of Elizabeth II, this vision of the Queen shows her with the George IV State Diadem Crown.
The monogrammed initials of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon feature in the reverse design of the 5 Pound Proof British Gold Queen Mother Birth Coins. The initials reflect two Es with an English rose and a Scottish thistle flanking the intial on either side. The Imperial Crown is featured above the initials.
These 1990 5 Pound Proof British Gold Queen Mother Birth Coins come with plastic slabs and near-perfect grades. PF69 coins showcase full, original mint luster with no more than two detracting flaws. Those flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and must be located outside the primary focal points. UCAM coins are proof specimens with strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear fields.
