200th Anniversary of the Birth of Queen Victoria 2019 UK £5 Coin
To celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria, The Royal Mint has issued a brand new £5 coin.
Queen Victoria was born in 1819 and became Queen when she was just 18 years old. She reigned for the rest of the century which was an incredible period of historic change. Under Queen Victoria’s reign, The British Empire became a superpower during an era of peace and prosperity.

The obverse features the fifth portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, designed by Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark.
