2005 Battle of Trafalgar Gold Proof Five Pound Crown

Bicentenary of the Battle of Trafalgar 1805 - 2005

In 2005, the British Royal Mint are issuing a gold proof five pound crown, for the bi-centenary of the Battle of Trafalgar. We expect this issue to be very popular, as it commemorates Britain's greatest naval victory, or should that be Victory? The issue limit has also been reduced to only 1,805 pieces. This compares very favourably with 7,500 issued in 1999 of the Princess Diana Memorial issue.

Gold Silver and Base Metal Versions

As from 1990, the five pound crowns have been produced in a number of different versions, and in three different metals. The non-gold versions can be found on the 2005 Crowns page of our other site.
