Queen Elizabeth II is the first British monarch in history to celebrate their 90th birthday. This is another great milestone event for Elizabeth, who became the longest reigning British monarch in 2015. The Queen's actual birthday is on the 21st of April. Her official birthday is celebrated on the second Saturday in June. The coin comes displayed in a splendidly lined wooden presentation box. Mintage is limited to 250 coins.
The obverse features the fifth definitive UK coin portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, by Jody Clark. His initials are below the truncated neck. The coin bears the inscription ELIZABETH II·D·G·REG·500 POUNDS·2016·
The reverse was designed by the painter and sculptor, Christopher Hobbs. His mosaics have appeared in Westminster Cathedral. The design was inspired by the rose of England and The Queen's love of flowers. It shows nine roses, one for each decade of her life.
