2017 marks the Centenary of the House of Windsor. The name was first adopted in 1917, during the First World War, by a proclamation from King George V. It replaced the historic name of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and remains the family name of our current British Royal Family.
To mark this important milestone in British Royal history, The Royal Mint has released a new Silver Proof £5 coin.
The release of UK £5 coins are reserved for only the most significant British anniversaries and have become firmly established as the most sought-after silver coin among knowledgeable collectors.
Importantly, the edition limit has been set at just 10,000 worldwide, a tiny amount when you consider the equivalent UK £5 Silver Proof coins and their sell out history. The Queen's Sapphire Jubilee Silver £5 that had an edition limit of 8,000 SOLD OUT at the Mint in less than a week.
Each coin has been struck from 925/1000 Sterling Silver to an immaculate Proof Finish. The reverse features a design based on the Badge of the House of Windsor approved by George VI, surrounded by oak leaves representing strength, patience and longevity, and acorns as a symbol of prosperity.
Your coin comes in its Official Royal Mint Presentation Case and with a Certificate of Authenticity.
