Florence Nightingale was born on 12th May 1820, and died 13th August 1910. She is well known for her work during the Crimean war, training and then managing nurses, caring for the wounded soldiers. Nightingale is considered to have significantly improved nursing standards, and was known as "The Lady with the Lamp" when making her rounds at night. She opened a nursing school which is now part of King's College London, and published her work to spread medical knowledge.
The coin also marks 150 years since her "Notes on Nursing" was published, with the edge inscription of "150 YEARS OF NURSING".
