Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS which has been specially adapted to fit into the unique shape.

A brief annotation Queen Nefertiti, the Great Royal Wife of the Egyptian Pharoah Akhenaten, was made famous by her bust which is a 3,300 year old limestone bust which has become one of the most copied works of art in Ancient Egypt. The face on the bust is completely symmetrical and the left eye was not completed and was believed to be used as an example of how to sculpt facial proportions. This uniquely shaped coin was issued to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the discovery of Nefertiti’s Bust by Ludwig Borchardt in 1912.
