Why I recommend the 2020 UK British Red Cros Silver Proof Piedfort £5…

The Royal Mint has just released the new official UK Silver Proof £5 in a tribute to one of the Queen’s favourite charities – the British Red Cross. Formed in 1870 to provide help to people in crisis, Her Majesty is patron of the society.

Now the British Red Cross is being featured on a UK coin for the VERY FIRST TIME and, with each coin carrying a donation, The Royal Mint hopes to raise £28,000 across the British Red Cross range. This stunning double-thickness (Piedfort) Silver Proof issue features the iconic Red Cross emblem in striking scarlet red on the reverse and has been limited to just 1,150 in limited edition packaging.
