1993 Gold Five Pounds

£5 History

Way back in 1902, five pound gold coins were issued for circulation, but even then, they were probably mainly hoarded as curiosities and keepsakes as the modern cupro-nickel £5 crowns are nowadays.
You may wish to see our page of other gold £5 coins. In 1980 the Royal Mint started issuing gold £5 coins once again, although some dates were issued only as part of a 4 coin gold proof set, others were issued as proofs, some as uncirculated versions.

1993 Five Pounds - Third Portrait

On gold five pounds, the third portrait was issued from 1985 to 1986, and from 1990 to 1997. In all these years the £5 coin was issued separately in a "Brilliant Uncirculated" version, although there was a proof version issued in the proof sets. We usually have one of these large and striking gold coins in stock.

Low Mintage

The mintage of the 1985 coins was 13,626 pieces, and for 1993 was only 906 pieces, making 1993 quite a low mintage year.

"U" For Uncirculated

From the 1984 issue, the Mint started to place a letter "U" to the left of the date to denote Brilliant Uncirculated versions of the five pound gold coins, as opposed to the proof versions, we do not know why they thought this was necessary.
