The set of five Canadian coins, introduced in 1990, featuring the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II wearing a diamond crown as well as a diamond necklace and earrings. Coins are displayed in a custom coin wallet with a Certificate of Authenticity. In 1990, a new portrait of Queen Elizabeth II was introduced on Canadian coins. The new portrait shows a mature image of the Queen, who is wearing a crown for the first time. This was the third portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on circulating Canadian coins, after the original portrait in 1953 with a laurel wreath and the second portrait in 1965 with a tiara. The diamond design was created by Dora de Pedery-Hunt, the first Canadian artist to design a portrait of the Queen for Canadian coins. The diamond crown is circular and is decorated with roses, shamrocks, and thistles to represent England, Ireland, and Scotland, respectively. The crown was made for King George IV (reigned 1820-1830) and was worn by Queen Victoria for her formal portraits. Queen Elizabeth II wears the crown for the opening of Parliament. This design was used on Canadian coins until 2003; it was replaced with an uncrowned portrait. Each coin is a classic that is now out of issue.
