2017 King Canute Coronation 1017 £5 Crown Silver Proof

UK17KCSP 2017 King Canute Coronation 1017 £5 Crown Silver Proof Boxed
Canute - also spelt ‘Cnut’ - was king of England from 1016 to his death in 1035. His accession to the Danish throne in 1018 and later military victories in Norway and Sweden expanded the so-called North Sea Empire and leant him the epithet ‘the Great’. This 2017 Five Pound coin from The Royal Mint celebrates one thousand years since Canute was crowned King of England in London in the year 1017. It features a stylised left-facing portrait reverse, designed by Lee R Jones and inspired by Canute’s contemporary coinage. The legend reads ‘1017 King Canute 2017’. This is paired with Jody Clark’s fifth official coinage portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, introduced in 2015. Struck to flawless proof standard, this commemorative Crown is composed of 28.28 grams of .925 sterling silver and has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres. Its offered in its original packing and capsule with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Only 3,873 of these proof coins were issued.
