Full Answer

Though they are legal tender, five-pound coins are primarily minted as commemorative crown coins. Due to the commemorative status, coins in uncirculated condition are worth considerably more than those used as currency. Typically, the older the five-pound coin is, the higher its value, though five-pound coins minted as recently as 2010 can be worth up to 1,250 pounds or more in proof or uncirculated condition.
