The year 2020 marked the historic 150th anniversary of the British Red Cross – the organisation that has helped millions of people across the globe. And to celebrate 150 years of connecting human kindness with human crisis, The Royal Mint has issued a 2020 £5 coin.
What’s more, a portion* of the sale of this coin will be donated to the British Red Cross by The Royal Mint on our behalf. This will help the organisation to continue its incredible work.
The bespoke design by Henry Gray perfectly captures the organisation’s credo of selflessness, compassion, and goodwill, with the inscription ‘the power of kindness’. The iconic Red Cross emblem is captured in scarlet at the centre of the coin, making it a truly striking piece for any collection. What’s more, the organisation’s motto – ‘through humanity to peace’ – is inscribed on the edge.
This coin has been struck to Brilliant Uncirculated quality, so you know it will be free from any of the marks or blemishes you would find on coins in your change. It comes beautifully presented in bespoke Royal Mint packaging and is available at the Royal Mint issue price of JUST £17 (+p&p).
