We are thrilled to launch the third coin in our growing coin collection, Battles That Changed History – which highlights legendary battles that changed the course of history. The Battle of Trafalgar took place off Cape Trafalgar on 21 October, 1805. Its outcome ensured that the French would never invade Britain and confirmed Britain’s naval supremacy – which lasted for another century.

Battle of Trafalgar — 1oz Silver Coin
The Battle of Trafalgar 1oz Silver Coin features a coloured illustration of the commander of the victorious British fleet, Admiral Lord Nelson. He stands against an antique, engraved background featuring ships engaged in fierce battle.
This coin cleverly combines colour and engraving, with an antique finish, and comes presented in a complementary antique-looking timber box. Inside the coin is nestled in the black velvet interior with the uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity. The themed outer box features a black line art illustration of the battle imposed over an antiqued paper texture.
With a worldwide mintage of only 5,000 coins, this Battle of Trafalgar 1oz Silver Coin would make a unique gift for coin collectors and those with an interest in naval history.
