This gold proof £5 coin (aka Quintuple Sovereign, or Crown) was issued to commemorate the bi-centenary of the death of Horatio Nelson at his most famous triumph during the battle of Trafalgar, where the Royal Navy attacked the combined French and Spanish fleet, saving Britain from attack by Napoleon.

The coin is a companion piece to another 2005 £5 gold coin commemorating the battle of Trafalgar.

Proof coins are struck twice to ensure greater clarity of detail compared to their bullion counterparts. The coin is 22 carat gold or 916.7 purity. It contains 36.613 of fine gold, with an additional amount of metal - usually copper - added to provide extra resilience against damage.

Please note: This coin does not come with the original box or certificate of authenticity, it is supplied as 'coin only' in a plastic capsule.
