In 2000 the Royal Mint released a Limited Issue Brilliant Uncirculated £5 Five Pound Coin First Day Cover to commemorate the 100th Birthday of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother
For his superb portrait of the Queen Mother, Ian Rank Broadley worked from photographs which the Queen Mother graciously allowed to be taken for this very special purpose.
To symbolise The Queen Mothers century, he has included cheering crowds in the background, those in Victorian dress rejoicing at her birth and those in modern dress celebrating her hundredth year.
Below the portrait appears a representation of her signature.
The obverse is the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank Broadley FRBS, FSNAD.
