1902 Edward VII British Gold £5 Coins

Although Edward VII aceeded to the British throne in 1901, the first year of his coinage was 1902. Gold five pound coins (quintuple sovereigns) were issued in both ordinary uncirculated, and proof versions, the proofs being issued as part of 13-coin sets. The mintage figures for both types was surprisingly high.
We buy and sell 1902 proof or uncirculated gold five pound pieces at competitive prices.

Five Pounds History

The first gold quintuple sovereign (£5 coin), was issued in 1820, and is considered by some to be be a pattern coin. In 1826 and 1839, proofs were issued as part of complete proof coin sets, and this also occurred in 1902, 1911, and 1937.
Only in 1887, 1893, and 1902 were ordinary circulation types issued in addition to proof versions.
