The Victorian Anniversary Silver Proof £5 Five Pound Coin of 2001 recalls that great age of industry, reform and progress with a magnificent commemorative reverse inspired by one of the most famous events in Victorian history, the Great Exhibition.
The ornate iron frame of the spectacular Crystal Palace provides a fitting and decorative background for a portrait of the young Queen Victoria, while the use of railway lines to form the letter V is a pleasing reminder that the Victorian era is also the age of railway expansion.
The obverse of the coin features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank Broadley
