1999 Gold Five Pounds
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.
"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.
