Queen Mother 90th Birthday £5
In 1990 the late Queen Mother celebrated her 90th birthday and the Royal Mint issued a
special commemorative £5 piece to honour that event. They also issued a specimen example
in an early type of bubble pack, not as fancy as the modern packaging, not as expensive
as the modern ones either.
You have a crowned cipher on the reverse with the dates 1900 1990 and H. M. the Queen
on the obverse. These are still mint sealed, in a smaller package which is easier to store. We
found 25 of them in one of the vault rooms and while they last, you can have one for an incredible price.
