This £5 Crown-sized commemorative coin commemorates the 150th anniversary of the British Red Cross.

The Red Cross Movement began in 1863 with Henry Dunant and his inspiration for a kinder world. Appalled by the suffering he saw on all sides of a war, Henry Dunant called for all nations to come together to create trained volunteer relief groups to treat those sick and wounded on the battlefield, regardless of the side to which they belonged. Following the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War in 1870, the National Society for Aid to the Sick and Wounded in War was formed in Britain on the basis of these fundamental principles. The Society was renamed the British Red Cross and was granted its first Royal Charter in 1908 by King Edward VII.

The reverse of the coin shows, overlaid on the map of the United Kingdom, a small circle with the colourised emblem of the Red Cross - a red cross with equal sides (composed of five squares) on white background, which is the reverse of the Swiss flag.

Around above in the outer ring, the inscription · 1870 · BRITISH RED CROSS · 2020 ·; around below, the motto THE POWER OF KINDNESS.
