1980 Queen Mother Coin at Rare British Coins
In 1980, the Royal Mint issued a 1980 Queen Mother Coin, a commemorative crown to mark the Queen Mother’s 80th birthday. The coin features the Queen Mother in the centre, with lions and bows around her. It also has the text “QUEEN ELIZABETH THE QUEEN MOTHER 4 AUGUST 1980”.
Loads of superb coins, tokens, banknotes and coin collectables from England and Britain, including Roman England. I don’t know about you, but most children of my generation were given one of these crowns back at the time. Giving crown coins was a very common thing to do. I suspect that there are many millions of these at the back of drawers and sideboard cupboards all over the world.
