1996 Queen's 70th Birthday £5

This £5 was issued in 1996 to commemorate the Queen's 70th birthday.

It has often been said that if Buckingham Palace is Her Majesty's office, then Windsor is very much her home.

This reverse created by Avril Vaughn, features a design which relates directly to the Queen herself. Windsor Castle - her Royal residence in Berkshire, is the backdrop to the Royal Standard, the Union Flag and the Queen's personal flag.

The two accompanying pennants bear the anniversary dates 1926 and 1996.

As this coin is no longer available at The Royal Mint and due to the high demand surrounding Queen Elizabeth II commemorative coins, demand for this £5 is exceptionally high.

Stocks are limited, so act fast to secure yours.
