Honouring One of Britain’s Greatest Monarchs

It is impossible to imagine modern Britain without the influence of Queen Victoria and the era of incredible progress and innovation to which she lends her name. In 2019 The Royal Mint celebrates 200 years since her birth with a £5 coin capturing the energy of the woman and the period in which she lived. An iconic design by William Wyon, former Chief Engraver at The Royal Mint, depicting Queen Victoria and Prince Albert has also been revived on five-ounce and kilo coins in the range.
