The Royal Mint

George III -

Monumental stories in Miniature

In the 200th year since his death, we celebrate his reign and legacy. The £5 coin design is by Royal Mint designer Dominique Evans and reflects the many aspects of George III’s life and interests. George III came to the throne in 1760, the first Hanoverian monarch to be born in Britain and speak English as a first language.

 

Controversially, he is often known for the mental illness that plagued his latter years and as the king who lost the American colonies, but there was much more to this thoughtful and dedicated monarch.
