The Christmas Tree £5 Coin 2017
Monday, 9 October 2017 | Gareth
As each calendar window is prised open by eager hands, the special day gets closer and closer. It's practically time to choose a tree together, battle it through the front door and bring the decors down from the loft. Wrapped in tinsel, strung with lights and baubles hanging from every branch, the darkest time of the year is changed into the most magical.
This year's Royal Mint Christmas coin celebrates the very heart of our Yuletide traditions with this initial Christmas tree design-- the best way to remember a wonderful time invested with friends and family. Think wise men bearing presents, a little extra for those who strive all year, or a bag of chocolate treasure; Christmas and coins go together.
This year, tuck a real coin in their stocking. Keep the spirit of the season alive with this year-dated Brilliant Uncirculated ₤5 Christmas tree coin. Printmaker Edwina Ellis catches the excitement of the joyful season through the stars, baubles and candy canes that deck the branches of the tree-- the centrepiece of any home at Christmas.
