This card is from the Robin Wood deck, published in 1991.

This Queen is loving and nurturing in practical, earthy ways. She makes sure that everyone in her care has a comfortable life with plenty of good food. She’ll make you a cup of tea and listen attentively to your problems. But she’s more than just a willing ear and a shoulder to cry on - she’ll suggest solutions and will give actual assistance. What’s more, she’ll stick with you through the rough spots. Pentacles are all about dedication - you can trust them. And they won’t give up on you. Today this card comes up in reverse to say that you should look within and find the Queen of Pentacles in yourself. Her qualities are in you and you may not even realize it. When you’re facing a problem or a crisis, nurture yourself and take care of your physical needs. Learn to move past the emotions and focus on the nitty-gritty, real-world details so you can deal with the situation effectively. This takes practice and discipline but you can do it! Also, don’t be shy about asking for practical help from others. There are many tasks that are far easier with helping hands - moving, housecleaning, yard work, taking things to the dump or the thrift shop, and so forth. Even getting a ride somewhere can be a godsend at times, and you’ll find people are happy to assist.
