The Royal Mint has launched a commemorative £5 coin to celebrate 150 years since the formation of the British Red Cross and to support their vital work.
The British Red Cross was at the forefront of the response to the coronavirus pandemic, supporting those hardest hit by providing practical and emotional support through their national support line, getting cash grants, food and other essential supplies to people in urgent need, and helping the NHS to transport patients safely home from hospital.
In recognition of the incredible work carried out by the British Red Cross every day, The Royal Mint has donated 150 of the brilliant uncirculated commemorative British Red Cross coins to volunteers and staff nominated by their colleagues as a thank you for all of their continuous hard work and dedication.
The first time the British Red Cross has been commemorated on a UK coin.

The iconic Red Cross emblem in vivid red colour at the centre over the map of UK reflects the British Red Cross’s work in the UK and as part of the world’s largest global humanitarian movement. The idea of connectivity is central, with overlapping lines representing what we can achieve when we work together. Below it bears the words ‘The Power of Kindness’ in prominent positioning beneath the design, illustrating the organisation’s ethos of selflessness, compassion and goodwill.
