Certified British Gold!
This £5 Gold coin was issued to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the ascension of Henry VIII to the throne. The traditional St. George and dragon design by Benedetto Pistrucci is replaced only on special occasions. The quincentenary of the ascension of Henry VIII to the English throne is such an event, so the 2009 £5 features a brand new design for one year only. The reverse features a full length image of King Henry VIII in his regal robes. The obverse of the new coin will feature the acclaimed portrait of The Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley.
Rarely offered for sale. This example has been graded Proof 69 Deep Cameo by PCGS!
