Ninety-five people who will turn 95 this year are to receive a commemorative coin to celebrate the Queen’s 95th birthday, the Royal Mint has said.
The Mint is inviting nominations for recipients of a brilliant uncirculated £5 commemorative coin featuring a design by heraldic artist Timothy Noad.
Applications should be submitted to the Royal Mint’s website with the name and contact details of the nominee.
The winners will be drawn at random and asked to provide photographic evidence of birth during 1926.
The Queen, who will reach the age of 95 on April 21, will have her birthday marked by the Mint, which has struck a range of coins, featuring two new designs, for the occasion.
Clare Maclennan, divisional director of the consumer division at the Royal Mint, said: “Each coin is a miniature work of art and has been designed as a treasured keepsake or gift, and we are delighted to be able to gift 95 of them to 95 people celebrating their own landmark birthdays this year.”
The prize draw closes on Monday April 19 at 11am.
