The English £5 Gold Crown is just one of the variations of the English Crown. First introduced under the title of the "Crown of the Double Rose", the English Crown entered production during the reign of King Henry VIII as part of his plan to spark monetary reform in the year 1526. General use variations of the crown can be found in gold and silver. Collectors editions of the £5 Crown are also available in gold, silver and platinum.

The Gold Crown was minted during the reign of every monarch of England from the time of King Henry VIII until Mary I. Mary I did not order the mint of new Crowns during her reign but their production resumed with Elizabeth I of England and continues today.

The £5 Gold Crown did not come into existence until 1990 when the coins face value was changed to reflects its larger size and production cost. Prior to 1990, the Crown was worth five shillings, or 25 new pence.

The current gold Crown measures 38.61 millimeters in diameter and weighs in at 39.94 grams.
