In 2001 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative £2 coin to commemorate the wireless being installed across the Atlantic Ocean. It was struck for circulation, for VIP collectors in Proof Sterling Silver and for VVIP collectors in Silver Proof Piedfort. That is double the normal thickness in Sterling Silver. The Mint issued the coin at £49.50 and the last time they offered these on their website they were charging £60.00.

The coin comes in FDC in a protective capsule and housed in the original Royal Mint presentation case with the certificate.

Issued by the Royal Mint in 2000, this commemorative 50 Pence piece honoured the 150th anniversary of Public Libraries. It was never given the publicity it deserved and many collectors do not have one in their collections. Each coin is complete in its own case, with a certificate just as it was issued by the Royal Mint. Illustrated here is the Piedfort Sterling Silver Proof of the Library 50p.

Elizabeth II, £2 1997 Silver 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.
