2001 Victorian Era Centenary £5

To mark 100 years since the end of the Victorian era, The Royal Mint issued a detailed UK £5 coin.

Queen Victoria’s death in January of 1901 meant the end of an era, but it has left a lasting effect on the world we live in today. Her reign made extraordinary progress in industry, technology, arts and science.

Mary Milner-Dickens’ design on this UK £5 coin details a profile of Queen Victoria by William Wyon, which was once used for British stamps (between 1840-1902). You can also see the 1851 Crystal Palace exhibition in the background of the design.

This coin is no longer available from The Royal Mint and, due to the difficulty in sourcing this issue, stocks are incredibly limited.
