To celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s 95th birthday, a collection of limited-edition coins has been issued by the Westminster Collection.

Coin collections are proposed by the Westminster Collection, and approved by the Government of Jersey for their release. 

The limited-edition coin collection includes: 

  • A £5 coin featuring Jersey lilies on the reverse
  • A £5 coin with coloured Jersey lilies on the reverse 
  • A set of three £5 silver coins featuring the national flowers of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man on the reverse. 

All of the coins have a new portrait of Her Majesty by the artist Luigi Badia, commissioned exclusively for Queen Elizabeth II’s 95th birthday.

The Minister for Treasury and Resources, Deputy Susie Pinel, said: “We are excited about these limited-edition coins to celebrate Her Majesty’s 95th birthday. The use of our national flower – the Jersey lily – makes them particularly distinctive and attractive.” 

The coins are available to purchase from the Westminster Collection.
