A Tale of Two Sides
2015 sees the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. To commemorate the event, The Royal Mint issued a £5 crown.
The Battle of Waterloo was one of the most decisive battles in history, the final battle of the long running Napoleonic Wars. It brought over 20 years of conflict in Europe to an end and left a lasting legacy on the world.
David Lawrence’s design captures the handshake between a triumphant Wellington and Blücher, the spirit of camaraderie. This edition of the commemorative £5 coin celebrating the bicentenary is finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard – superior to any circulating coin.
