The Richard Trevithick £5 Capsule Edition

Richard Trevithick was a British engineer and inventor, and pioneered the use of high-pressure steam engines, which led to him developing the first ever working steam locomotive!

To commemorate 250 years since the birth of Richard Trevithick, a British Isles £5 coin has been released.

And importantly, you can now own this coin in a strictly limited edition capsule edition – limited to just 500 collectors!

To put that into perspective, the standard coin presentation has a limited edition of just 2,021 and the 2004 Steam Engine £2 coin issued by the UK had a mintage of over 5 million! The 500 coins set aside for this special presentation are going to be highly sought after.

Your coin will come presented in a Presentation Box alongside a numbered Certificate of Authenticity confirming your coins place within the strict, worldwide edition limit of just 500, and is encapsulated in a tamper proof capsule to preserve its Proof finish for years to come.
