A beautiful coin. I like the Red Cross in colors inside it
As a junior red cross member in this part of the world (Hong Kong) some 50 years ago, this coin reminds us lots of service activities and memory . Thank you.
UK 2020 British Red Cross Silver Proof £5 Coin
BRAND NEW Silver £5 celebrating the British Red Cross
This year marks the historic 150th anniversary of the British Red Cross, and to celebrate 150 years of connecting human kindness with human crisis, The Royal Mint has issued a BRAND NEW UK Silver £5 coin.
Perfectly struck from .925 Silver to a perfect proof finish, the bespoke design by Henry Gray perfectly captures the organisation’s credo of selflessness, compassion, and goodwill.
The iconic Red Cross emblem is captured in scarlet at the centre of the coin, making it a truly striking piece for any collection. This feature is sure to make this coin a future collecting priority because colour is very rarely seen on £5 coins.
JUST 4,000 available worldwide
What’s perhaps more important though, than its size and design, is its edition limit – JUST 4,000 worldwide.
Considering the global impact of The British Red Cross this issue is sure to attract worldwide attention. So much so that I suspect the tiny number of coins available – only 4,000 – will not be enough to meet demand. I expect a very swift sell out.
Especially when you consider that similar coloured issues, such as the very first UK Remembrance Day Silver £5, with a higher edition limit of 5,000, have completely SOLD OUT!
Secure yours for the Royal Mint issue price
What’s more, a portion* of the sale of this coin will be donated to the British Red Cross by The Royal Mint on our behalf. This will help the organisation to continue its incredible work, in a year that’s proving to be extremely difficult for charities across the globe.
