£5 Proof Coins
Proof coins showcase meticulous craftsmanship and artistry, as they are specially minted and mainly produced for collectors.
Proof Coins are unique because the minting process involves multiple strikes using specially polished dies with polished planchets (blank coins). The result is a coin with exceptionally sharp details and mirrored or frosted surfaces.
In the past 30 years, various proof coins have been released to commemorate British culture.
At the British Coin Company, we have a limited number of 33
high-quality £5 proof coins for you to start collecting today! These coins were released from 1990 to 2022 and are symbolic reminders of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign throughout the past 30 years.
