Limited to JUST 500 collectors – UK £5 DateStamp™ Issue

2020 marked the historic 150th anniversary of the British Red Cross and to celebrate 150 years of connecting human kindness with human crisis, The Royal Mint has issued a £5 coin.

The bespoke design by Henry Gray perfectly captures the organisation’s credo of selflessness, compassion, and goodwill. The iconic Red Cross emblem is captured in scarlet at the centre of the coin, making it a truly striking piece for any collection.

JUST 500 available worldwide

Thousands of the Brilliant Uncirculated British Red Cross £5 Coins will be struck by The Royal Mint, however ONLY 500 will be available to own in this exclusive DateStamp™ Issue.

This provides you with an extremely limited way to own this £5 coin. Your coin will be officially postmarked by Royal Mail with the date 4th August 2020 – exactly 150 years to the day since the organisation was founded.

Act quickly

What’s more, each coin comes protectively sealed in a tamper-proof numismatic capsule with its own unique serial number so you can even register it online to receive your official DateStamp™ registration certificate.

Remember, because of the special one-day-only postmark, JUST 500 of these issues will ever be made available. DateStamp™ issues are always popular and as a result have some of the fastest sell-out rates around!

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 is will help the organisation to continue its incredible work.
