Why buy this £5 British 2017 A Century of Royal Service - The Centenary of the House of Windsor commemorative?

The British monarchy marks a momentous anniversary with this 2017 5 p British A Century of Royal Service - The Centenary of the House of Windsor. The name "Saxe-Coburg-Gotha" became part of the British royal family in 1840 when Queen Victoria married Prince Albert. In 1917, George V decided that it was inappropriate for the family to have a German name while Britain was at war with Germany, so he changed the name to Windsor. Struck from cupro-nickel at the British Royal Mint, this coin measures 38.61mm in diameter.

Exquisite Badge of the House of Windsor design by Timothy Noad

Jody Clark designed the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II that serves as this coin's obverse design. Clark shows the monarch wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem, which she wore at her coronation.

Timothy Noad based his reverse design on the George VI-approved Badge of the House of Windsor. At the center is a tower from Windsor Castle. It is flanked by branches. A crown is included above the tower between the branches. The date, "2017," is inscribed at the bottom, while "CENTENARY OF THE HOUSE OF WINDSOR" is spread throughout the rest of the rim.
