Elizabeth II, £5 2000 Silver Piedfort

In 2000 the Queen Mother celebrated her 100th birthday and the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative crownsized £5 piece to honour this most important event. You have the Queen Mother on one side and her daughter The Queen on the other, be sure you call heads with this coin. We understand that they only struck 14,850 of these Sterling Silver Piedfort, after all, they are double the normal thickness of a Crown and thus quite huge. Each coin comes in the original Royal Mint packaging with the certificate, capsule and outer presentation case. The last time we offered these we quickly sold out, so if you want one for your collection, we suggest that you get in quickly!

Elizabeth II, £2 1997 Piedfort

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.

Elizabeth II, £1 (English Pound) 1992 Silver Proof in capsule FDC

In 1987 the Royal Mint issued a pound coin with the Oak Tree to represent England and in 1992 they repeated this design on the Pound coin. Again they issued the coins as Sterling Silver Proofs for collectors but in 1992 the mintage was considerably lower than in 1987. All coins are Proof Sterling Silver and in their original capsules as issued. Supplies are short and with the new design of pound coin just released these older issues will be in greater demand.
