To honor the Queen's seventieth birthday, the States of Jersey issued a commemorative two-pound coin. The reverse design by Norman Sillman shows a delightful birthday bouquet of Jersey lilies, an autumn flowering plant that, with its pink, funnel shaped blooms, is indigenous to the island of Jersey.

Compare this coin to the 25th Wedding Anniversary One pound coin.
