The Christmas commemorative issue will be the second coin designed by the Rt. Rev Gregory Cameron
The United Kingdom’s first official Christmas coin
Christmas is a special time of year and The Royal Mint has joined in the festivities by striking the UK’s first official Christmas coin. This £20 fine silver coin builds on centuries of good luck customs involving coins, with a design inspired by 2,000 years of storytelling.
All coins made by The Royal Mint are legal tender, whether commemorative or circulating. However, only circulating legal tender coins are designed to be spent and traded at businesses and banks. This coin is a commemorative coin so banks, post offices and shops will not accept them.
