|1994 Queen Mother Coins|
1994 Queen Mother Collection
The complete collection comprises twenty-four silver coins from all over the world with superb reverse designs graphically tracing the remarkable life 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.
The Royal Mint Bulletin issue 53 winter edition 1994 offers these sets for sale to collectors. Typically this offer does not specify which were the 24 countries which would be issuing the coins! If you think this is surprising, the price is not mentioned either. The Barbados coin, only struck in .500 fine silver instead of .925 silver is shown as being offered at a specially reduced price as was the second coin, that from the Seychelles. The price for the Barbados was shown as £9.95, but no actual price was mentioned for the Seychelles coin, we guess it would be more than £9.95, and that the rest of the coins would have been more expensive still. Our guess is that the rest of the coins were probably priced about £29.50 each, making a total cost for the set of about £679.

The astute reader, or those with nothing better to do than count the items in our list, may notice that there are a total of 33* coins listed above, from 24* different countries. We assume the Royal Mint didn't throw commercial sense to the wind, and give away the other 8 coins free of charge. Our guess is that some countries issued extra coins which were not part of the "programme", in which case some collectors may have felt cheated that they never acquired the complete set, and possibly never knew about the other coins. There may be other coins or other countries which still need to be added. If any Royal Mint customers have a complete list of the coins they received, we would appreciate a copy so that we can solve the mystery. There are some clues:-
