The Proof £5 Bicentenary Tribute to Florence Nightingale – JUST £25

This year marks the bicentenary of Florence Nightingale’s birth – the mother of modern nursing.

Florence Nightingale was a pioneer of 19th Century Britain, perhaps one of the most revered and recognised Britons in history. The work and practices that she pioneered during the Crimean War can be intrinsically linked today to the life-saving medical work that is conducted in our present day.

An official tribute to a British pioneer – issued to mark the Bicentenary of her birth

There can be few more poignant anniversaries at the moment than that of Florence Nightingale.

Only the most significant British commemorations are marked on British Isles coins, so it is only right therefore that the founder of modern nursing is rightfully commemorated on a BRAND NEW Official British Isles Proof £5 Coin to mark the bi-centenary of her birth this year.

This brand new coin is the perfect way to pay tribute and honour the memory of such a worthy British pioneer, and is the perfect addition to any collection.

And in these unprecedented times a 20% donation will go directly to Cavell Nurses’ Trust, the charity helping nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants suffering personal or financial hardship.
