2016 - 50th Anniversary of England's World Cup Win

World Cup Coin

On the 30th July 1966, Sir Alf Ramsey led his team to a spectacular win over West Germany, with two extra-time goals bringing the final score to 4-2. The design, by Royal Mint Coin Designer Emma Noble, was inspired by the 1966 FIFA World Cup England ™ logo.  This is the only official coin released to mark the occasion and it is fully licensed by the Football Association (The FA).

The coin is a replica of the £5 coin used for the coin toss in England's friendly against Portugal on 2nd June 2016. 

The obverse of the coin depicts an image of Her Majesty the Queen by Ian Rank- Broadley FRBS.
