Incredible design feat makes this one of the most collectable coins of the year

• Silver Proof £5 issued to mark the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of WWII

• Featuring rarely seen micro-engraving with all 276 words of King George VI’s famous speech

• Limited to just 1,939 pieces

• Struck from over 28g of Sterling Silver to a flawless Proof finish

Why I recommend The 80th Anniversary of the Outbreak of WWII Silver Proof £5 Coin…

On 3 September 1939, King George VI overcame his stammering nervousness to deliver a speech to a nation with the news everybody was dreading – Britain was at war again. But, through this speech and many other addresses during the conflict, he became an unlikely symbol of national resistance; his mundane domesticity a reminder of what Britain was fighting for.

Now, to mark 80 years since that fateful speech and the outbreak of WWII, a coin has been issued that simply has to be seen to be believed. Through rarely seen micro-engraving, the designer has been able to fit the entire King’s speech onto the coin – all 276 words. The text is so small that a magnifier is supplied with the coin. That design feat and the limited edition of just 1,939 make this a must-have.
