2001 Victorian Era Centenary £5

The death of Queen Victoria in January 1901 marked the end of an era which has left its mark on the modern world.

Her reign was remarkable for the extraordinary progress in industry, technology, arts and sciences and the expansion of the British Empire.

This coin was issued to mark 100 years since her death and the end of the Victorian era.

The reverse by Mary Milner-Dickens reproduces the profile of Victoria by William Wyon which was used for British stamps from 1840 to 1902, against the background of the Crystal Palace exhibition of 1851.
