2015 First World War 100th Anniversary Five Pound Crown Silver Proof Coin Set

UK15W1SS 2015 First World War £5 Crown Silver Proof Set Boxed
Six coin silver proof set, part of a series marking the hundredth anniversary of the First World War. This set looks at the events of 1915, the second year of the conflict with exclusive designs from a range of respected designers. It’s a collaboration between The Royal Mint and the Imperial War Museum. The majority of these coins were only issued as part of these sets: they generally weren’t offered individually. Just 1,915 sets - enclosed in a velvet lined black leather case - were made available by The Royal Mint as part of this limited edition presentation. Each of the coins is composed of 28.28 grams of .925 sterling silver and has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres. They’re finished to proof standard. Included in this set are Crown coins celebrating pilot and Victoria Cross recipient Albert Ball (design by David Cornell), the role of animals in World War One with a mule in the heat of battle (by David Lawrence) and the bravery of British nurse, Edith Cavell (by David Cornell). Also in the set: a submarine warfare Five Pound coin (designed by Edwina Ellis), a tribute to the Merchant Navy (by David Rowlands) and a piece marking the beginning of the Gallipoli Campaign which continued into 1916 (by John Berghdahl). A fantastic set, essential for commemorative Crown collectors. Offered in original packaging with numbered certificate.
