The person they included on the crown was H.M. Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. You see in, 1980, the Queen Mother celebrated her 80th Birthday.

Another thing that the Mint did was to issue this Specimen Crown in a blue presentation folder. These specimen quality are better than Uncirculated, they are a sort of Prooflike quality and we are able to offer these coins to you at a very special price.
