Due to the unpopularity of the Jubilee bust coinage by Boehm with its barely credible "toy crown" perched on the head of Victoria, it was only six years before the coinage design was changed again to the older "Widow" type obverse by Thomas Brock. Proof sets were produced as well as currency coins from the large gold Five Pounds herewith to the bronze Farthing. As only the second currency gold Five Pounds ever produced, mintages were much lower than the Jubilee issue of 1887 probably because it was not directly connected to a celebration like a Jubilee, rendering them rarer today.
