In 1999 the Webb Ellis Cup Final was hosted by the Welsh Rugby Union. To honour this even the Royal Mint issued a Special Commemorative £2 coin. This issue we offer the collector’s versions in Silver. Although they are struck in Proof Sterling Silver, to imitate the base metal bi-metallic currency issues, the Royal Mint gold plated the outer rim of the Silver Proof Coins. All coins come in a protective capsule as issued by the mint.
In 1996 the Royal Mint did something they had never done before. They issued a Proof Set of the then current 1996 coins but, every coin was struck in Proof Sterling Silver. Here we present the 1996 5 Pence in Sterling Silver .
This huge 5 ounce Silver £10.00 was issued by the Royal Mint in 2016 for the 90th Birthday of H. M. Queen Elizabeth II. It is a huge and impressive coin. You have a crowned E II R 90 in a carved ring within a wreath of intricately engraved roses. H. M. Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse. A marketing company in America bought them from the Royal Mint, including the first 500 of these coins that the Mint struck. They sent them in for slabbed and if they graded 69 out of 70 or 70 out of 70, they then had the coins slabbed. The Proof 69 Ultra Cameo examples they left in the slabs. The presentation is outstanding, these were sold by the Royal Mint at £420.00 a coin. You can have this Proof 69 for just £295.00 - £125.00 less than the Mint sold them for.
The Ceremony of the Keys started in 1340 when Edward III returned and found the castle doors unlocked. So every night they have a fantastic ceremony to show that the doors are locked. That also means that the Wardens are locked inside as well. This Sterling Silver Proof £5 was issued in 2019 to honour the event as part of their Tower of London Collection. You have the lamp and the keys on one side and Queen Elizabeth II on the other side. They are Choice Proofs in the complete original Royal Mint packaging including certificate and booklet. These were issued at £82.50. We have a limited number of pieces available, and you can have one for just £69.50.
Let’s be honest, forget all the bull that is being given out, this was the first Brexit coin. It is an old large-sized 50 Pence which was issued in 1973. It was the first-ever commemorative 50 Pence pieces, the series they are issuing today are based on this coin. It was issued to honour our joining the European Economic Community or EU for short. In 1973 we joined it, in 2021 we are finally rid of it. They were only issued in cupro-nickel but in both Uncirculated and Proof condition. Without this coin, we could never have a coin for leaving the EU, if you aren’t a member you cannot resign. Much underappreciated even though it was our first-ever commemorative 50p, which is now 47 years old. We can offer it in Brilliant Uncirculated, Proof and Proof with the Royal Mint case. The choice is yours.
The British Gold Sovereign was first issued under King George III as a replacement for the Guinea series. Each coin weighs just under 8 grams and is struck in 22ct Gold. Here we are offering the Jody Clark Sovereign Sovereign by type rather than by date.
VIP collectors were offered Sterling Silver versions of the old round pound. This coin is dated 2006. These are the regular base metal designs but struck in Proof Sterling Silver. You have the Queen on the obverse and the Egyptian Arch on the reverse. Each coin comes in a protective capsule as issued and is in gleaming Brilliant Proof condition.
A dealer we know broke up some Royal Mint 2009 all Silver Proof Sets for the Kew Gardens 50p. We were able to buy the rest of the sets at a most reasonable price, which we are now passing on to you. There were six (6) sets, so there are just six of each of the following Sterling Silver Proof coins. Here we present the £1 in its Royal Mint Protective capsule, at this price it is well worth thinking about…
In 1996 the Royal Mint did something they had never done before. They issued a Proof Set of the then current 1996 coins but, every coin was struck in Proof Sterling Silver. Here we present the 1996 £1 in Sterling Silver.
In 2015 the Royal Mint issued a totally different Silver One Ounce Britannia. You have Britannia wearing a Corinthian Helmet carrying a trident and her shield with the British flag. This is just a magnificent coin and one of the most attractive that the Royal Mint has ever issued. They were sold to a marketing company in the United States, who had them slabbed. They are graded Proof 70 Ultra Cameo the finest of the fine. On top of that, it states that this coin was one of the first 1,250 struck. A beautiful coin in perfect condition and a very early strike, what more could you ask for? Supplies are very limited and at only £69.50 it should be a sell-out. Get them while you can…
The Royal Mint has been issuing the one ounce Britannia with an oriental decoration. They haven’t been advertising it, we usually get some from one of our wholesalers. I have always thought that it is a beautiful coin and the ones we were allocated have always quickly sold out. Now we have some of the Oriental design in Proof condition and are they beautiful. We have just 53 pieces of the 2018 Oriental Design Silver Britannia in Proof condition. All the coins have been slabbed and once they are gone, they are gone. I think they are beautiful and no collector should be without one. But that won’t happen as we only have 53 pieces in stock. Don’t miss out on them…
In 1997 the Royal Mint changed the Two Pound Piece. They made it smaller and they also made it bi-metallic and as with all new designs or types, collectors put them away. Come the next year and 1998 was almost forgotten by collectors. The coin on offer is the collector’s version of the circulating £2 of 1998, but struck in Proof Sterling Silver. To make the coin look like a bi-metallic coin, they gold plated the rim of the coin, so you see gold and silver, similar colours to the circulating issue. This 1998 Silver Proof £2 is not an easy coin to find and many collectors are missing it. An interesting coin almost forgotten by collectors sold at the right price.
Don’t ask us how we won't tell you. But we are offering you the beautiful 2021 Silver Britannia in Brilliant Uncirculated condition NOW in 2020. All we can say is the coins were legally bought and yes, they are next year’s coins which you can have this year. Each 999 fine silver coin contains one ounce of pure silver. It was issued by the Royal Mint and is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Buy it quickly and you can amaze your friends when you show them next year’s coins this year... We think they are fantastic but there is a limit of 10 coins per collector at this time. Next year you can have all you want, but this year there is a limit of 10 coins of the 2021 Silver Britannia per order. It is beautiful, and you can have it before the end of this year!
As many of you know DNA is the building block of life. In 2003, The Royal Mint celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the discovery of the Double Helix by Francis Crick and James Watson. The Royal Mint did a Special Collector’s edition in Proof Sterling Silver in Piedfort or Double Thick Sterling Silver Proof and this is the coin we are offering. The mintage was a maximum of 10,000 pieces and each coin is in a protective capsule. It can be yours at just £65.00.
In 1995 the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £2 piece to mark the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II. They used the iconic Dove of Peace and the inscription read ‘1945 In Peace Goodwill 1995’. They were struck in a brass coloured metal for general circulation. You must remember that this was 25 years ago and we at that time used the older large sized Two Pound coin. You have the so-called Maklouf portrait of the Queen on one side and the Dove of Peace on the other side. While it is relatively easy to find Prooflike Specimen coins from the bubble packs and Mint Sets, it is not so easy to find the coins that were actually struck for circulation. The coins on offer are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and the difficult ones, the ones issued for circulation.
In 1995 the Royal Mint celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the End of World War II with a commemorative £2 piece. You have the Dove of Peace on one side and Queen Elizabeth II on the other side. Remember this coin is one of the old large-sized £2 pieces. Comes in Sterling Silver Proof. Each coin comes in a protective capsule.
For those of you who like football, in 1996 the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £2 coin for the European Championship that was held in this country. You have a most interesting and innovative design on this coin and one which they unfortunately have not repeated. You had the whole reverse covered by a football and with the planchet concave you have a stunning coin. We are offering the two Collector’s editions as issued by the Royal Mint. Featured here is the Piedfort Sterling Silver proof variant (double thickness). This was the last of the large sized £2 pieces and in our opinion the most attractive and innovative.
In 2017 the Royal Mint issued a £2 coin that contained one ounce of Pure Silver. We know because we sold the Uncirculated pieces. We thought that was all there was... But recently we bought from an overseas distributor, not one piece in Proof condition, but a pair of Proof pieces in their original Royal Mint case of issue. One coin is in Brilliant Proof and the other is in Reverse Proof condition. The mintage for the pair is only 800 pieces in each finish. We have never seen this set before and we're not even sure if it was ever even for sale in this country. Normally you would expect to pay £125-£150 for each of these two coins or £250-£300 for the pair. A fantastic chance to add this very low mintage pair of Silver Proofs to your collection at a much more interesting price. You get both silver Proof Big Ben £2 coins, one in Brilliant Proof, and the other in Reverse Proof. The pair is sold with its Royal Mint case for just £145.00
In 1997 the Royal Mint issued the first of the current bi-metallic £2 pieces, the problem was how to strike them for collectors in Silver. The answer was to strike them in Sterling Silver and then to gold plate the outer ring so it would look like a bi-metallic piece. Many collectors have overlooked this series and to be honest we just don’t know why. The first of any series is important and these especially for the difficulty that the Mint faced in striking them. Here we offer the Piedfort Sterling Silver Proof £2.
We have just had our first supply of the NEW 2020 Silver Britannia. Each coin contains 1 ounce of pure silver, 31.1 grams, is in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition, and has a face value of £2.00. A beautiful and most reasonable series and one that you can add to your collection at a realistic price.
In 1999 the Webb Ellis Cup Final was hosted by the Welsh Rugby Union. To honour this even the Royal Mint issued a Special Commemorative £2 coin. Here we are offering the collector's versions in silver. Although they are struck in Sterling Silver, to imitate the base metal bi-metallic currency issues, the Royal Mint gold plated the outer rim of the Silver Proof Coins. Struck in Proof Sterling Silver and come in a protective capsule as issued by the Mint. Supplies are very limited.
It was 23 years ago (1997) that the Royal Mint issued its first bi-metallic £2 piece. Before then we had a larger heavier coin in just one metal. To make the new coin even more interesting, to VIP collections, they struck them in Proof Sterling Silver. For real VIP’s they struck them in Sterling Silver in double the normal thickness, these are called Piedforts. Not only can we offer you the first date of issue in Sterling Silver Piedfort, but we can also offer you the second date as well in Sterling Silver Piedfort. The second date is always more difficult to find than the first date. Everyone sees a new coin and they buy one and put it away. By the time the second coin comes out, most people ignore it, as they already have the first one. All our coins are in Proof condition in a protective capsule. Today the Royal Mint charges £110.00 for a Piedfort £2; our prices are much more interesting. You can have either the first date ever issued or the second date ever issued, or treat yourself and buy both.
In 1986 the Royal Mint issued its first ever non Gold Two Pound Piece. It was a commemorative for the Commonwealth Games which were held in Edinburgh, Scotland. It has a Scottish Thistle in the middle of the Scottish flag, with the cross of St. Andrew. The obverse has the so called Maklouf portrait of the Queen. They were struck in base metal for general circulation and in Proof Sterling Silver for collectors. Today these coins are getting more and more difficult to find. It is the first non Gold Two Pound piece and a commemorative.

In 1997 the Royal Mint changed the Two Pound Piece. They made it smaller and they also made it bimetallic and as with all new designs or types, collectors put them away. Come the next year and 1998 was almost forgotten by collectors. The coin on offer is the collector’s version of the circulating £2 of 1998, but struck in Proof Sterling Silver. To make the coin look like a bi-metallic coin, they gold plated the rim of the coin, so you see gold and silver, similar colours to the circulating issue. We have found that this 1998 Silver Proof £2 is not an easy coin to find and many collectors are missing it in their collections. An interesting coin almost forgotten by collectors and the price is right.
‘The Two Dragons' Silver Crownsized £2 coin issued in 2018 by the Royal Mint. Obverse: fifth crowned portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II right. Reverse: both the Eastern dragon and the Welsh dragon. Sold in a capsule.
In 1995 the Royal Mint celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the End of World War II with a commemorative £2 piece. You have the Dove of Peace on one side and Queen Elizabeth II on the other side. Remember this coin is one of the old large-sized £2 pieces. Comes in Piedfort Proof (double the normal thickness of Sterling Silver Proof). Each coin comes in a protective capsule.
In 2015 the Royal Mint issued a crownsized £5 to honour Winston S. Churchill, our wartime Prime Minister. We have offered the Sterling Silver Piedfort of this coin before, but this is the first time that we offer the regular thickness. It is struck in Proof Sterling Silver rather than the double thickness of the Piedfort. Churchill is always popular and as we have less than 40 examples available it should be a quick seller. You have H. M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and Sir Winston Churchill in a rather interesting and I think beautiful portrait. You have had the Piedfort now is the time for the ‘regular’ VIP Sterling Silver Proof.
In 1990 the late Queen Mother celebrated her 90th birthday and the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 piece to honour that event. They also issued a specimen example in an early type of bubble pack, not as fancy as the modern packaging, not as expensive as the modern ones either. You have a crowned cipher on the reverse with the dates 1900-1990 and H. M. the Queen on the obverse. These are still mint sealed, in a smaller package which is easier to store. We found 25 of them in one of the vault rooms and while they last, you can have one for a great price!
Prince Philip and the Queen got married in 1947 and he has been a fantastic consort for Her Majesty. The Queen is on every coin, but Prince Philip has only been on very few. The first coin that featured Prince Philip was the 25 Pence piece or Crown issued in 1972 for the Wedding Anniversary. There was no portrait but just two initials ‘E & P’ under a crown. In 1997 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative £5 piece for the Golden Wedding of the Queen and Prince Philip and this time his portrait did appear on the coin. You have the Queen wearing her crown and Prince Philip standing beside her. The other side has their two coats of arms under a crown with an anchor below. The first coin to show two conjoined busts was in the reign of William & Mary in 1689. We have both of these important crownsized pieces, one a crown or five shillings and the other £5 but both in Proof Sterling Silver. Today the Royal Mint charges £80-£100 for a Silver Proof crownsized coin. Both are not easy to find and in Choice Proof condition and struck in Sterling Silver, the finest silver that was used for coins. Supplies are limited and it is a great way to honour H.R.H Prince Philip and of course, H.M. The Queen, after all, how many couples have celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary?
In 2002 the Royal Mint issued a crownsized £5.00 to honour the 50th anniversary of Elizabeth becoming Queen Elizabeth II. On one side you have the Queen on horseback and on the other you have a rather stunning portrait of the Queen in a very pensive pose. We have a small number of this handsome Silver Proof £5 complete in capsule. They are beautiful and do justice to our Monarch who has dedicated so much of her life to her country and her people. Don’t miss out, this is a handsome coin.
Do you remember the prophets of doom that emerged before the year 2000? What about the havoc that the Y2K bug was going to cause? It's hard to believe that more than 20 years have passed since then... but just before the turn of the century, and as a forerunner to the Millennium, the Royal Mint issued this Silver Proof £5 in 1999. You have three dates on it, two on one side and one on the other. On the obverse, you have a portrait of the Queen and the date 1999, the date it was actually issued. On the other side, you have a map of the world with Great Britain prominent with the Greenwich Meridian at the top. On the one side, you have 1999 and on the other side, you have 2000. Each piece is struck in Proof Sterling silver and each coin comes in the Royal Mint capsule as issued. It is one of the more interesting of the Royal Mint’s Five Pound series.
In 2017 the Royal Mint issued a handsome £5 to celebrate the Queen and Prince Philip’s 70th wedding anniversary, their Platinum. They called it ‘a story of love and loyalty’, as royalists, it is something we totally agree with. And for once the Royal Mint issued a coin that we think fully reflects the time and the mood. You have the conjoined busts of the Queen and Prince Philip on one side and the Queen on horseback on the other side. The certificate this comes with the coin says there is a maximum of 15,950 to be issued, but if previous Royal Mint issues are anything to go by, the mintage will be much lower. Each striking Proof coin comes in the Royal Mint packaging with certificate. This is a rather beautiful piece and supplies are limited.
The Britannia silver series is usually only available in Proof condition, except for the one-ounce silver. But in 2006 the Royal Mint issued the 1/10th Silver Britannia in Uncirculated condition. As far as we know, this is the only year that they issued this coin in Uncirculated condition. So it is a Very Important type coin. This is a special coin. First, because it was only issued for one year and secondly and most importantly because we can sell it for such a cheap price. Each coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and struck in Sterling Silver, they only ever issued this coin in Uncirculated for one year. So it is a Very Important type coin. You can have this 1/10th Britannia only issued in 2006 for just £8.95. At this price, it really is a Special Offer!
In fact the Royal Mint issued a set of coins for the new Decimalisation which contained three coins dated 1971 and two dated 1968. The 10 Pence and the 5 Pence were dated 1968 as they had an exact decimal equivalent. This older large sized 10 Pence was dated and issued in1968, three years before the coins were going to be issued. The set was to train people in the new decimal coinage. This 10 Pence is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and a lot of collectors are missing it from their collections.
The 1984 Halfpence, Two Pence, Five Pence, Ten Pence and Fifty Pence were not struck for circulation. The only way to get one of these coins is to buy a Mint Set or Proof Set and break it up. They only made 158,820 of the Mint Set with the coins in Specimen Brilliant Uncirculated condition. That makes these coins some of the lowest mintage coins around. Offered here is the Ten Pence in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
The old large-sized 10 Pence was struck from 1968-1992, but it was only struck in Proof condition from 1971-1992. Please remember that over the years these coins will have mellowed a little, we always send you the best example that we have in stock. The Ten Pence is the most collected coin and difficult to get in many cases. The 1975 Ten Pence offered here is in proof condition and comes with the Machin Bust which was produced from 1968-1981.
