Your chance to own the UK's VERY FIRST Decimal Crown for just £5
Before £5 coins, major Royal events and national celebrations were marked by the Royal Mint with Crown Coins - struck to the exact same specification as today's £5 coins.

This historic UK coin was issued in 1972 to mark the Queen's Silver Wedding Anniversary and is the first of just four decimal crown coins ever to be struck.
