King George III was the first king of the United Kingdom, and remains to this day the longest reigning king in British history.
His impressive 59-year reign was memorable for multiple military conflicts, including the end of the American War of Independence and the defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. He oversaw great change in Britain as we emerged as a world power, and was the first monarch to appear on the modern Sovereign, the UK’s flagship gold coin.
And, significantly, this year marks the 200th anniversary of the end of his reign.
To commemorate this important time in our nation’s history and to celebrate his life and legacy, The Royal Mint has announced the issue of the official UK King George III £5 Coin.
This coin has been struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, and features a design by Dominique Evans, which explores the multifaceted nature of Britain’s longest reigning king. The design incorporates an effigy of the king alongside the King’s Observatory and Windsor Castle.
Your coin will arrive in its official bespoke Royal Mint presentation pack, so you can keep it safe and in pristine condition for generations to come.
