King George III was the first king of the United Kingdom, and remains to this day the longest reigning king in British history. His impressive 59-year reign saw great change in Britain, including the defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo, agricultural and industrial revolutions and Britain emerging as a world power.
And, significantly, this year marks the 200th anniversary of the end of his reign.
To commemorate this important time in our nation’s history and to celebrate his life and legacy, The Royal Mint has announced the issue of the official UK King George III Silver Proof £5 Coin.
UK 2020 King George III Silver Proof £5
Struck from .925 Sterling Silver to an immaculate proof finish, this coin features a design by Dominique Evans, which explores the multifaceted nature of Britain’s longest reigning king. The design incorporates an effigy of the king alongside the King’s Observatory and Windsor Castle.
Each coin will arrive in its bespoke Royal Mint presentation case, complete with numbered certificate of authenticity.
One of the smallest Silver £5 edition limits ever
Significantly JUST 2,500 single coins have been authorised for release in this limited edition presentation – one of the smallest ever edition limits for a Silver £5.
We haven’t seen a coin with such a low edition limit for a number of years. Most notably the 2017 Prince Philip Silver £5 with an edition limit of 3,000 completely sold out at the Royal Mint.
Considering this, and the historical importance of King George III’s reign, there is sure to be significant interest amongst knowledgeable collectors. Expect a very swift sell out.

The good news is, as official distributors, we have managed to secure a limited allocation of these coins for Westminster Collection collectors. But considering how highly collectable and steeped in history this issue is, we do not expect them to be available for long.
If you’re quick you can secure one today for your collection with a deposit of JUST £16.50 (+p&p) and choose to spread the cost over four further interest-free instalments.
