Royal Mint Coins

Royal Mint Coins are very popular with coin collectors from around the world. Over the years the Royal Mint has produced a significant number of commemorative coins, medals, and bullion, as well as all of the UK’s circulating coinage. As one of the UK’s biggest and oldest coin dealers, we sell Royal Mint coins to collectors and not investors. That is why you won’t find on this page all of the commemorative coins the Royal Mint has released throughout the years. That is because, in our opinion, and from a collector’s perspective, some of the items produced by the Royal Mint are just not worth collecting… Richard, our founder, has given an extensive interview for coin update on how national mints often let coin collectors down. You can view this article and many others on our News page.

Here you’ll find some of the most popular items the Royal Mint has released, which we think are worth collecting, sold at fair prices. Such as the Britannia Coins, the Royal Mint Gold SovereignRoyal Mint Proof Coin Sets, and some of the Royal Mint 50ps. These are not the only items worth collecting, but they tend to be very popular with collectors. Scroll down to see more items we think will be worth your time and money.

Picture of Elizabeth II, £1 (Egyptian Bridge) 2006 Silver Proof

Elizabeth II, £1 (Egyptian Bridge) 2006 Silver Proof

VIP collectors were offered Sterling Silver versions of the old round pound. This coin is dated 2006. These are the regular base metal designs but struck in Proof Sterling Silver.

1994_Scottish_Pound_Obv

Elizabeth II, £1 (Scottish Pound) 1994 Silver Proof in capsule FDC

This handsome Sterling Silver proof version of the Pound coin was issued in 1994 when the design was to honour Scotland. You have a rampant Lion on one side with the so-called Maklouf bust of the Queen on the other side. These are Special Collector’s Editions struck in Proof Sterling Silver by the Royal Mint. They had an original mintage limit of 25,000, but I don’t know how many they actually struck. Each Sterling Silver Proof comes in a protective capsule inside the original Royal Mint case of issue. The design is most attractive and it would be very difficult today to even get a normal circulation issue in Uncirculated let alone Silver Proof. Now some 26 years old and not an easy coin to find, a great gift if you know someone born or married in 1994 and with the new Pound Coin just released, interest and demand for these older issues is greater.

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, £1 1987 Silver Proof Piedfort

Elizabeth II, £1 1987 Silver Proof Piedfort

In 1984 the Royal Mint started it’s first series of Silver Proof Pounds, they were for Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and finally England. This 1987 issue was the last of the series and was for England. These are the normal coins that are used in circulation, but special collectors editions which the Royal Mint struck in Proof Sterling Silver and an even smaller number in double thick Sterling Silver, which they call Piedfort. Many collectors believe that they should start at the beginning of a series and then work toward today’s coins. The coins we offer are the Piedforts. Each coin comes in the protective capsule as issued by the Mint. Sterling Silver is 925 parts Silver per 1,000 parts total and is the Silver that our coins used to be made of. Remember these are double the normal thickness. Add this beautiful Sterling Silver Piedfort Proof Pound to your collection, it’s a nice place to start…

2020 Royal Coat of Arms £10 10 Oz. Silver BU_obv

Elizabeth II, £10 (Royal Coat Of Arms) 2020 10 Oz. Silver BU FREE STAND

When I first saw this coin, I thought that it would make a fantastic display piece on a mantelpiece. It has the Royal Arms with a unicorn and a lion on the reverse with the crowned coat of arms and the date 2020. The obverse has the crosshatched background around H.M. the Queen. It looks like one of the Australian reverse proofs but they call it Brilliant Uncirculated. It is flawless, comes in a plastic capsule and individually wrapped and in a white card case. Remember the Royal Mint charges £415 for a five ounce proof and this is double the weight or 10 ounces of pure silver. To display it we are also going to give you FREE a Perspex display stand so you can show it off. I am going to offer the few examples we have for £20.00 less than the cost of a five ounce silver and this coin contains twice that amount of silver! Beautiful and a bargain and with FREE display stand.

2021 £2 Gold in Brilliant Uncirculated_obv

Elizabeth II, £2 2021 Gold BU

Our wholesaler offered us very few pieces of the 2021 Royal Mint £2 gold piece. They are beautiful in Prooflike Uncirculated condition but there is one little problem… He told us that he didn’t think that they would be getting any more, so he sold us all he had at the time, and he said that was all he thought they were ever going to get... His price was £40 more per coin than last year, but we still feel it was excellent value at only £895 which is about what two of the more common single gold sovereigns would cost. But please remember we have just 5 pieces available at this price or in fact any price. Please don’t miss out, limit one per collector to give all our collectors an equal chance...

Elizabeth II, £2 Pair of Big Ben 2017 Silver Proofs Cased

In 2017 the Royal Mint issued a £2 coin that contained one ounce of Pure Silver. We know because we sold the Uncirculated pieces. We thought that was all there was... But recently we bought from an overseas distributor, not one piece in Proof condition, but a pair of Proof pieces in their original Royal Mint case of issue. One coin is in Brilliant Proof and the other is in Reverse Proof condition. The mintage for the pair is only 800 pieces in each finish. We have never seen this set before and we're not even sure if it was ever even for sale in this country. Normally you would expect to pay £125-£150 for each of these two coins or £250-£300 for the pair. A fantastic chance to add this very low mintage pair of Silver Proofs to your collection at a much more interesting price. You get both silver Proof Big Ben £2 coins, one in Brilliant Proof, and the other in Reverse Proof. The pair is sold with its Royal Mint case for just £165.00

Picture of Elizabeth II, £2 Piedfort, 1997

Elizabeth II, £2 Piedfort, 1997

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.
