Known for his military successes, Alfred the Great is one of the most influential monarchs in British history, and this year is the 1,150th anniversary of his coronation.
To mark the occasion The Royal Mint has authorised for a BRAND NEW UK £5 Silver Coin to be issued – struck from .925 silver to a flawless proof finish.
Importantly, this is the oldest anniversary to ever be celebrated on a UK coin! This will make it highly desirable for years to come.
John Bergdahl’s reverse design is inspired by the priceless Anglo-Saxon relic The Alfred Jewel. This is amongst the most significant Royal relics to have ever been discovered and and now's your chance to own this piece of British history.
JUST 2,250 available worldwide
Remarkably, The Royal Mint has authorised JUST 2,250 coins to be issued worldwide in this limited edition presentation.
This will surely not be enough to meet demand. Just look at the King George III Silver £5 Coin with a higher edition limit of 2,500 – it completely sold out at the Mint!
