Own the UK Silver Proof £5 with the rarely seen feature

• UK Silver £5 release celebrating 150 years of the British Red Cross
• Limited to just 4,000 coins in limited edition packaging – this could be a fast sell-out
• The first time the British Red Cross has appeared on UK coinage
• Struck in Sterling Silver to a Proof finish with a stunning design that features the Red Cross emblem in scarlet on the reverse

Why I recommend the 2020 UK British Red Cross Silver Proof £5 Coin…

When The Royal Mint launched a Silver Proof £5 to celebrate 150 years of the British Red Cross it really got collectors talking. That’s because it featured something on the reverse that is so rarely seen on a UK coin.

The coin’s look is very patriotic, proudly placing Britain and the British Red Cross at the centre of the world – a nod to the great work the society does both at home and abroad.

The big talking point though is the famous Red Cross emblem in the middle of the coin’s reverse. It has been printed in deep scarlet red.

UK Silver Proof £5 coins very rarely feature colour printing and when they do, they tend to sell very quickly.
