The Queen Mother Collection
The Queen Mother Centenary Silver Collection is compiled in honour of the Queen Mother as she celebrates her hundredth birthday. The complete Collection comprises twelve crown-sized coins from all over the world with each superb reverse design graphically tracing the remarkable life and times of the Queen Mother - as the young and beautiful Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, as Duchess of York, as Queen Consort to George VI and finally in her familiar role today as Queen Mother

Official Approval
Approval for the designs has been given through Clarence House making this an important and official Collection. Some familiar and much-loved images have been transformed by advanced minting techniques as many of the coins appear as bi-metal crowns with their outer ring carefully plated with fine gold. As the Collection has unfolded over the year it has built into a truly magnificent work of art, one that if passed down through the coming decades will bring delight to each new generation

Storycard & Certificate
Each coin is accompanied by its own descriptive storycard and Certificate of Authenticity. A maximum of 10,000 Queen Mother Centenary Collections will be issued.
Befitting a series of such magnitude a richly illustrated booklet in now being prepared to complement the Collection. In much the same way as the coin designs chronicle in pictorial images important milestones in the life of the Queen Mother so too does the booklet.
This historic international collection provides a unique tribute of a very special occasion in the long life of a very special member of the Royal Family.

From memory, we believe that when this set was originally marketed, there was to be a Pitcairn Islands coin, but none materialised, instead two different Guernsey coins appear to have been included. Although it may be our imperfect memory, we suspect that the extra Guernsey coin may have been included because for some reason, no Pitcairn coin was issued.
