Pre-Owned Brilliant 1999/2000 Gold Proof Crown - boxed with Certificate Of Authenticity
This Gold Proof £5 coin (aka Quintuple Sovereign, or Crown) was issued by the Royal Mint to celebrate the Millennium, with 2,500 sets produced.
The coin, known as the Millennium Crown, was created by the veteran stamp designer Jeffrey Matthews in collaboration with the engraver Robert Evans. The design replicates that of a clock, with the 12 hand sitting perfectly on the meridian line for Greenwich Mean Time.
Along the edge of the coin is a quote from The Tempest by William Shakespeare, which reads: WHAT'S PAST IS PROLOGUE. The quote suggests the opportunity for change, and Matthews hoped this design would symbolise the potential that the UK has going into the 21st Century.
