This Gold Proof £5 coin (aka Quintuple Sovereign, or Crown) was issued to commemorate the bi-centenary of the death of Horatio Nelson.

This Gold Proof 2005 Five Pound coin is beautifully presented in a good-quality presentation case, and comes complete with a certificate of authenticity and a full colour booklet, which discusses the coin and Nelson. This set was limited to 1,805 sets - referring to the year of his death.

The back of the coin features Nelson's portrait, as designed by James Butler, while the front features Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley. The edge bears a quote from Nelson: ENGLAND EXPECTS EVERY MAN TO DO HIS DUTY.

Horatio Nelson was a famous Vice-Admiral of the British Navy. He served as an officer during the American War of Independence and later the French Revolutionary Wars against Napoleon. He lost his right eye in Corsica and his right arm a few years later in Tenerife, but ultimately continued to serve and succeed. His greatest achievement was to win the Battle of Trafalgar - the most famous British naval victory of all time - but Nelson was fatally wounded by a French sharpshooter in the battle and died, age 47.
