Year 2001 Gold Victorian Era Five Pound Crown
The 2001 crown pays fitting tribute to one of the more dramatic periods in history - the Victorian era.
An anniversary needs special attention, thats why the British Royal Mint has produced the magnificent Victorian Crown.
The Victorian age, ending with Queen Victoria's death at the dawn of the twentieth century, was one of industrial and social transformation.
By the end of the nineteenth century people were enjoying the benefits of railways, telephones, electric lighting and motor cars, things that everyone, today, takes for granted.
This anniversary crown, with its beautiful reverse design showing Mary Milner Dickens' representation of the Young Head of Queen Victoria and Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of our present Queen, takes pride of place in this year's crown presentation folder.
Just as Mary Milner Dickens was influenced by the Crystal Palace for her reverse design, the presentation folder, too, features a beautiful illustration of this spectacular glass building.

Reverse Frosted Special Edition
The Royal Mint also issued a quantity of this coin, but with the frosted and polished areas reversed, but only as part of a "collection" with four Victorian sovereigns. Very nice if you want 4 Victorian sovereigns, but not great marketing if you don't.
