As pretty as a snowflake and just as unique. Gift the Nutcracker coin this Christmas.
This year, give a Christmas card that your loved ones will want to keep forever. The Royal Mint’s 2018 Christmas coin celebrates a story entrenched within our Christmas traditions – The Nutcracker. The coin is the shimmering centrepiece of this magical Christmas card.
Nutcrackers carry with them a sense of tradition as well as an abundance of stories and legends of the past. Just like The Nutcracker story, the tradition of coins at Christmas has a very long history, with St Nicholas placing coins in stockings drying on the chimney ledge; Christmas and coins go hand-in-hand.
Keep the spirit of the season alive by gifting this year-dated £5 Nutcracker coin. Artist Harry Brockway has captured the magic and spirit of The Nutcracker through the snowflakes, Sugar Plum Fairy and of course, the Nutcracker Soldier – the centrepiece of The Nutcracker story.
The Christmas Nutcracker 2018 UK £5 Brilliant Uncirculated Coin is also available to purchase at The Royal Mint Experience gift shop.
