Elizabeth II, £5 (White Lion of Mortimer) 2020 2 Oz Silver Piedfort

Issued in 2020 this large thick £5 piece is part of the series of The Queen’s Beasts and is a Piedfort. It weighs not one but two ounces of pure Silver. It shows a Lion standing holding the shield with the arms of Mortimer. It was issued toward the end of last year and what with the pandemic and all, it will be interesting to see how many they made. Since it was issued the price of silver has also risen. We bought them and put them aside until now. We only have some pieces available for our collectors. It is a beautiful coin in beautiful condition and worth having in your collection. The portrait of H. M. The Queen is brilliant on a cross-hatched field, which really makes it stand out. We have just checked the wholesaler and he has raised his prices by £20 since he last offered them…

2009 £1 (Specimen Pound) Prooflike Unc_obv

Elizabeth II, £1 (Specimen Pound) 2009 Prooflike Unc

The Pound coins toward the end of the series have always been difficult to find in Uncirculated condition. No one put them away as no one realized they were going to change the composition and design of the Pound. Not only did we have managed to obtain the difficult 2009 Pound, but the coins we have are also from the Mint Set and thus in Specimen BU condition. The Mint issues three grades of coins, Uncirculated that you get in your change with all the bag marks that entails. Specimen Briliant Uncirculated, were in bubble packs, Uncirculated but with beautiful Prooflike surfaces. Then there is Proof which requires the coin to have multiple strikes to get the almost perfect surface. These 2009 Pounds we are offering are in Specimen Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Picture of Elizabeth II, £2 1998 Proof Sterling Silver

Elizabeth II, £2 1998 Proof Sterling Silver

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.
