2010 Gold £5 Proof Crowns
In 2010 The Royal Mint issued a £5 gold crown. This was to commemorate the restoration of the Monarchy .

According to the Royal Mint:
The new commemorative 5 coin for 2010 marks a crucial episode in British history: in 1660, the system of government under the Commonwealth was abandoned in favour of a restored monarchy under Charles II. The specially designed reverse depicts a crown, the symbol of monarchy, with a spray of oak leaves and, in a pleasing link with the coinage of Charles II, interlinked Cs.

Crowns & Gold Five Pounds
There is a historical difference between gold crowns and gold five pound coins. Crowns were originally five shillings pieces worth a quarter of a pound, and five pound coins were, as their name tells, worth five pounds face value. The first British crowns were gold coins issued in 1544, and the first silver crowns were issued in 1551. It was not until 1990 that the Royal Mint re-tariffed the crown, which was by then a silvery coloured cupro-nickel coin, from five shillings to five pounds.
