1980 Queen Mother's 80th Birthday Crown Collection
In 1980, to commemorate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother's 80th birthday, a number of countries issued silver proof crowns or crown sized coins.
The Queen Mother
Born on the 4th August 1900, Lady Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon was the 9th child of the 14th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne. In 1923 she married His Royal Highness, The Duke of York, and as Duchess of York undertook many public duties.
On the abdication of King Edward VIII in 1936, the Duke and Duchess of York became King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Her courage during the war, her charm and devotion to duty help to explain why she is held in great affection by the public in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
Following the death of King George VI in 1952, Queen Elizabeth was accorded the title "Queen Mother" by her daughter Queen Elizabeth II who acceded to the throne in 1952.
