Celebrate 150 years of London's most iconic concert venue with this Five Pound Gold Proof piece: the first UK coin to feature a domed surface. 

Royal Albert Hall

Located in South Kensington, London, the Royal Albert Hall is one of the UK's most famous and distinctive buildings. Inspired by Roman amphitheatres, the round, red brick and terracotta venue is an instantly recognisable landmark.

The Hall was opened by Queen Victoria in 1871 and named for her husband, Prince Albert. Over the last century and a half the venue has played host to many of the world's leading artists, performing everything from ballet to rock. The BBC Proms have been held at The Royal Albert Hall every summer since 1941.

The 150th Anniversary

The COVID-19 pandemic meant the closure of the Royal Albert Hall for the first time since the Second World War. Now with restrictions lifting, an exciting programme of anniversary events are underway, marking 150 years of the beloved venue.

Celebrations will continue to 2023, but if you can't attend or you simply want to enjoy the prestige and glamour of 'The World's Village Hall' from home, the 2021 Royal Albert Hall Domed £5 Gold Proof makes a great purchase.

The First Domed Coin

The 2021 Royal Albert Hall Domed £5 Gold Proof is the first UK coin to feature a convex surface, mirroring the dome of the Royal Albert Hall. It's a subtle but striking effect, elevating the fine detail of the clean-lined design which artfully captures the architecture of the iconic venue.

The domed reverse is the work of Anne Desmet RA: a British artist who specialises in wood engravings, linocuts and mixed media collages. Her 3D rendering of the Albert Hall means that the obverse - featuring Jody Clark's portrait of Elizabeth II - is attractively and unusually concave.

Five Pound Gold Proof

The 2021 Royal Albert Hall Domed £5 Gold Proof coin is struck in 39.94 grams of 22 Carat Gold. This means that it contains a 36.59 grams of fine gold. The diameter of this piece is 38.61 millimetres.

The face value of this coin is Five Pounds and as legal tender it is Capital Gains Tax exempt. As investment grade gold it is also VAT free in the UK and Europe.

Like all Proof coins from The Royal Mint you can expect an exceptional finish, achieved through multiple strikings of hand finished dies, allowing you to appreciate Desmet's design in all its glory.

Limited Edition Presentation

The Royal Mint has also issued Silver and Cupronickel coins to celebrate the 150th anniversary of The Royal Albert Hall, bearing Desmet's domed design. The Five Pound Gold Proof issue is the only gold coin offered in this collection with the domed feature and also has the smallest mintage.

From a limited edition presentation of just 200, your 2021 Royal Albert Hall Domed £5 Gold Proof coin comes encapsulated in its original presentation case which contains an information booklet and a numbered certificate of authenticity.
