£5

A beautiful collection of £5 coins which have been issued to commemorate special occasions of national importance usually, but not exclusively, Royal in theme. They are intended to be souvenirs rather than ordinary circulation coins and are consequently seldom found in everyday circulation.

Traditionally crowns had a face value of 25p (or 5 shillings prior to decimalisation in February 1971). In 1990 the face value was increased to £5 to give the coin a value consistent with its weight and size in relation to those of the then current range of coins.
