The Christmas Tree 2017 UK £5 Brilliant Uncirculated Coin
A little piece of Christmas long after all the chocolate has gone
As each calendar window is prised open by eager hands, the big day gets closer and closer. It’s almost time to choose a tree together, wrestle it through the front door and fetch the decorations down from the loft. Wrapped in tinsel, strung with lights and baubles hanging from every branch, the darkest time of the year is transformed into the most magical.
This year’s Royal Mint Christmas coin celebrates the very heart of our Yuletide traditions with this original Christmas tree design – the perfect way to remember a wonderful time spent with family and friends. Think wise men bearing gifts, a little extra for those who work hard all year, or a bag of chocolate treasure; Christmas and coins go hand-in-hand.
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 captures the excitement of the festive season through the stars, baubles and candy canes that deck the branches of the tree – the centrepiece of any home at Christmas.
