Elizabeth II, £2 (Common Wealth Games) 1986 Proof Sterling Silver

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.

Elizabeth II, £5 (Golden Jubilee) 2002 Cupro Nickel Uncirculated

In 2002, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 50th or Golden Jubilee as our Queen. The Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 to honour the event. In many ways it is similar to the Coronation Crown of 1953, as the Queen is riding her horse. The obverse is the Queen with her crown and a most striking portrait it is. They are in Uncirculated condition and now, 20 years later, following the passing of our longest reigning monarch, they are one of the most sought after coins of her reign.

Elizabeth II, Crown 1953 Choice Unc (Brand New)

We have just bought an original case of 1953 Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Crowns and they are Brand New. There were 175 coins in their original black plastic cases as issued for schools and others to be given away in 1953. They were in the original card board box as sent out by the Royal Mint. These are beautiful Choice Uncirculated examples that have never been out of their original carton since they were issued 68 years ago. With a Jubilee coming up next year these are even more relevant today. We have never had them in the original carton in the past, most of the pieces that we have had were almost perfect. These are prefect as issued 68 years ago and never taken out of their packaging. Get them while you can you might never see them like this again. After all this is the first time we have ever seen them!
