The first coin -  Her Majesty's 90th birthday Half Crown - layered in pure 24 carat gold

A special collector’s edition, featuring Maklouf’s official 90th birthday portrait of the Queen, each coin is layered in pure 24 carat Gold and individually numbered, meaning your coin is the only one with that number. The earliest orders will receive the lowest numbers. Maklouf was determined only the most fitting coin was issued to mark the 90th birthday.  In his own words "...I was determined to ensure only the most fitting coin was designed to mark this exceptional occasion".


The five Silver layered One Crown Coins form the definitive set of Her Majesty's portraits with each portrait gloriously accented in 24 carat gold 

The first crown being the Mary Gillick portrait, 1952-1967 which is the only uncrowned portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The twenty-six-year-old Queen is shown facing right (the opposite way to her predecessor), bare-shouldered, adorned with a simple classical laurel wreath ties with a ribbon. 

The Second Portrait by Arnold Machin, 1968-1984 is the first decimal portrait introduced with the advent of decimal currency. Her Majesty wears the beautiful diamond Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara given to her as a wedding present in 1947 by her grandmother Queen Mary. 

Raphael David Maklouf created the third portrait 1985-1997 which is the first couped portrait showing a regal and ageless Queen wearing earrings and a necklace and crowned with the Royal Diamond Diadem often seen at the State opening of Parliament.

The penultimate portrait, 1998-2015 by Ian-Rank Broadley is the longest serving effigy of Her Majesty and it shows a large headed, couped portrait of a mature and regal, seventy-year-old Queen once more wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.

The final crown in the set is another created by Raphael Maklouf – a new effigy created as a tribute to the Queen’s ninetieth birthday. The portrait shows a relaxed looking Queen, a smile playing about her lips, wearing the Diadem and earring familiar from his earlier portrait.
