2016 Frosted Uncirculated Three Coin Set - 90th Birthday of Her Majesty The Queen

On 21 April 2016, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 90th birthday. In celebration of this monumental birthday,  the Royal Australian Mint is issuing a special three coin set  featuring the three different effigies that have graced our  circulating coins, delighting coin collectors, Royal Family  enthusiasts and memorabilia collectors. Offered as a made  to order product means the customers decide the mintage.

HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE

As the first British monarch to reach this age,  Her Majesty is experiencing both a personal and  royal milestone and the Mint is releasing a special  three coin set to celebrate this monumental event.  Part of the Royal Australian Mint’s Royal Collection this coin set continues the Mint’s long-serving  tradition of issuing coins commemorating significant  royal events and anniversaries. 

The Mint is reflecting on the past effigies that have  graced Australia’s coins since decimalisation in 1966.  This unique coin set, with a face value totalling  90 cents, features the three portraits of Her Majesty  by Arnold Machin, Raphael Maklouf and  Ian Rank-Broadley. 

The effigy design by Arnold Machin of a young Queen  in her 30s and the artwork by Raphael Maklouf of  Her Majesty in her 50s are both seen in this set on  20 cent coins. The current Australian obverse design  by Ian Rank-Broadley is proudly displayed on the  50 cent coin.  Seeing the changes through time, the different  portraits of Her Majesty make this coin set of interest  to all Australians.
