Each 1990 Gold 5 Pound Proof British Queen Mother Birth Coin offered here is in near-perfect condition. PF69 coins exhibit full, original mint luster and have no more than two minor detracting flaws present. Examples of these flaws include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines that must be located outside the primary focal points of the coin. Ultra-cameo specimens are coins that have strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
The 1990 release of a 5 Pound gold coin by the Royal Mint marked the 90th anniversary of the birth of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. Born Elizabeth Angel Marguerite Bowes-Lyon, she was the wife to King George VI of England and mother to Queen Elizabeth II. From 1936 to 1952, she was Queen of the United Kingdom and the final British royal to serve as Empress of India.
The obverse side of 1990 Gold Proof British Queen Mother Birth Coins features a portrait of the reigning monarch of Great Britain, Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in right-profile relief in the third-generation effigy from Raphael Maklouf. This design was created in 1985 and featured on British coins through 1997.
On the reverse field of 1990 Gold 5 Pound Queen Mother Birth Coins is a depiction of monogrammed initials representing Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Born in 1900, she served as Queen of the United Kingdom until her husband’s death. After his death, her title was changed to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother to avoid any confusion with her daughter, the new Queen Elizabeth II.
