UK 2017 King Canute Silver Proof £5
Secure the King Canute UK Silver £5 Coin
To mark the 1000th anniversary of King Canute’s Coronation, the United Kingdom has issued a brand new UK Silver Proof £5 Coin to commemorate the event.
Struck from 925/1000 Sterling Silver to an exquisite proof finish by The Royal Mint, your coin’s reverse features a striking engraved design of the Nordic king inspired by the original currency of King Canute by Royal Mint coin designer Lee R. Jones. The obverse carries the Jody Clark portrait of Her Majesty.
This is the first time ever King Canute has been commemorated on a UK coin and this is also the first time a 1000th anniversary has been celebrated on a UK coin.
Fittingly, your coin is ready to display in its own Royal Mint Presentation Case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
However, with such a low worldwide edition limit of just 3,000 coins we don’t expect this coin to be available for long.
