2017 marks the Centenary of the House of Windsor and in commemoration of this significant milestone in British Royal history a new House of Windsor Silver Five Pound Proof Coin has been issued.
The name was first adopted in 1917, during the First World War, by a proclamation from King George V. It replaced the historic name of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and remains the family name of our current British Royal Family.
The name Windsor has had a long association with monarchy in Britain, through the town of Windsor, Berkshire, and Windsor Castle itself which features on the badge of the House of Windsor.
In fact, approved by Her Majesty the Queen, the coin’s design is inspired by Windsor Castle and features a depiction of the castle with the Royal Standard flying atop the tower. The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Sterling Silver with a Proof Finish
Struck in 925/1000 silver, this coin has been struck to a Pristine Proof finish – the collector’s favourite and highest grade of finish found on collectable coins. Take a look at the video and you will see the incredible detail and stunning finish.
Your House of Windsor Silver Five Pound Proof Coin will arrive presented in a deluxe presentation case with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Very Low Edition Limit
Considering the popularity of silver proof coins commemorating royal anniversaries it is surprising that this coin has a worldwide edition limit of just 1,917, especially when you consider that British Isles and UK Silver £5 coin editions are often at least three times higher.
With such a low edition limit this coin is expected to sell out quickly so you will need to act fast to add this stunning coin to your collection.
