To celebrate the festive season this year, The Royal Mint has issued the FIRST EVER UK Christmas £5 coin.
The Christmas tree plays a key role in festive traditions, from decorating with baubles to keeping presents around the tree and opening them, so it is only fitting that one of the most iconic symbols of the festive period is featured on this BRAND NEW UK £5 Coin.
The coin has been struck by The Royal Mint and features a traditional Christmas tree design by engraver and printmaker Edwina Ellis. The obverse features the fifth definitive portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.
