The Richard Trevithick Proof £5

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 £5 coin has been released.

Issued by Guernsey, the Richard Trevithick Proof £5 coin features a portrait of Trevithick himself on the reverse, and has been struck to that all important Proof finish every collector loves to have!

Strictly Limited Edition

Coins in this specification are rarely struck to a Proof finish, and not only that, but this coin also has a strict edition limit of JUST 2,021 around the world! To put that into perspective, the 2004 Steam Engine £2 coin issued by the UK had a mintage of over 5 million!
