Regular price $165.00 Sale

Great by name, and great by deed, Alfred the Great began his eventual reign of much of England in 871 and shortly thereafter was drawn into fighting off the invading Vikings! After important early victories, Alfred eventually defeated the conquest attempt and became the dominant monarch in England.

Celebrating Alfred the Great's reign, this official Royal Mint legal tender collectable is inspired by an impressive artefact called "Alfred's Jewel" even including an edge-inscription "AELFRED MEC HEHT GEWYRCAN", which translates to "Alfred ordered me to be made". 

Each of these Proof quality, sterling silver £5 collector coins is housed in typically high quality Royal Mint packaging and is part of a limited mintage of just 2260.

Delivery expected End of May 2021.
