Elizabeth II, £5 (King Canute) 2017 Sterling Silver Proof

In 2017 the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative Sterling Silver Proof £5 to honour King Canute. King Canute, also known as Cnut was born in Denmark in 985 and won the throne of England in 1016. Scotland submitted to him in 1017. His later accession to the Danish throne in 1018 brought the crowns of England and Denmark together. He is perhaps best known for the rising of the tide story. He was the King who sat by the water, raised his hand and commanded the tide to stop. He did this to show his sycophantic courtiers how empty and worthless the power of a King is when compared to the power of God who commands heaven, earth, and sea. We believe The Royal Mint issued this £5 in Proof Sterling Silver coin with a beautiful, yet modern design, for £82.50 at the time. They no longer have it for sale on their website, so they probably have sold out. We have them in the complete package as issued by The Royal Mint, outer package, inner package, certificate, etc.

Picture of Elizabeth II, £2 Britannia (Dog Privy Mark) 2018

Elizabeth II, £2 Britannia (Dog Privy Mark) 2018

Last year the Royal Mint issued a silver Britannia. But what most collectors don’t realize is that they also issued a silver Britannia with dogs countermarked on the edge. This was for the Chinese year of the dog. Both our supplier and the Royal Mint have sold out. The coins have £2 face value and are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition containing one ounce of pure silver. If you look on the edge of the coin you will see five small dogs countermarked on the edge. This could be a sleeper, the countermarked Britannia we had last year quickly sold out and we have been unable to get any more, so please be warned...

Victoria, 1887 Silver Shilling, VF

In 1887, Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee, and the Royal Mint was allowed to change her portrait for the first time since 1838. Unfortunately, Queen Victoria hated her new portrait on the Shilling... Coincraft has a nice group of the first year of issue, 1887. The coins are struck in Sterling Silver and are in Very Fine Condition. Considering they are now 130 years old, this is quite outstanding.
