MILLENIUM 2000 FIVE POUND COIN Royal Mint

£4.00

MILLENIUM 2000 FIVE POUND COIN Royal Mint

CELEBRATING THE DAWN OF THE NEW MILLENIUM – 1999 2000 ANNO DOMINI – Original Royal Mint booklet holding the uncirculated collectable £5.00 coin. Overall dimensions: 6 ¾” x 4 ¾” In cellophane paper wrapping as received. Collectable for the future.

Designed by Jeffery Matthews and modelled by Royal Mint engraver Robert Evans, the reverse of the coin perfectly captures the passage of time from this century into the new millennium. The focal point of the design bears a representation of the British Isles with a pair of clock hands, pivoted on Greenwich and set at the crucial twelve o’clock position, with the important millennium dates of 1999 and 2000 incorporated either side. In addition, the traditional beading around the outer edge has been transformed into the minutes and hours of a clock face, further enhancing the essential theme of the design. This is continued by the incuse edge inscription WHAT’S PAST IS PROLOGUE, taken from Shakespeare’s The Tempest and recognising the dawn of the new millennium as an opportunity to look to the future.

The obverse bears Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of the Queen introduced in 1998.
