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 the Royal Mint commemorative coins 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 Sovereign, Royal 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.
In 1999 the Webb Ellis Cup Final was hosted by the Welsh Rugby Union. To honour this even the Royal Mint issued a Special Commemorative £2 coin. Here we are offering the collector's versions in silver. Although they are struck in Sterling Silver, to imitate the base metal bi-metallic currency issues, the Royal Mint gold plated the outer rim of the Silver Proof Coins. Struck in Proof Sterling Silver and come in a protective capsule as issued by the Mint. Supplies are very limited.
For those of you who like football, in 1996 the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £2 coin for the European Championship that was held in this country. You have a most interesting and innovative design on this coin and one which they, unfortunately, have not repeated. You had the whole reverse covered by a football and with the planchet concave you have a stunning coin. We are offering here is the Sterling Silver proof variant. This was the last of the large-sized £2 pieces and in our opinion the most attractive and innovative.
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.
In 2006 the Royal Mint issued a special Proof Set, not only were the denominations struck in Proof but they were Sterling Silver Proofs. We have obtained between 11 and 19 pieces of each of these £2 coins, which we now offer you now. You can now add it to your collection in beautiful Sterling Silver Proofs. This is one of the three most collected denominations and we only have a small quantity of each, so please do not miss out on this coin. It's shiny proof, it's sterling silver, and it can be yours...
We have only ever seen photographs of this most unusual silver Britannia. It is dated 2021 and has a stunning head of Britannia depicted as a woman of colour on the reverse, and H.M. the Queen on the obverse. It comes in a presentation box with a certificate and an information booklet. They have called it Uncirculated but we believe it is better a prooflike specimen. The mintage is a maximum of just 7,500 coins. We think it is delightful and the first time we have been able to offer it to our collectors. We have just 20 coins in stock and when they are gone, they are gone… If you collect Silver Britannias then you will want to have this coin in your collection, it is beautiful and difficult to get!!!
In 2022 the Royal Mint issued a special £2 or Double Sovereign for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, 70 years on the throne. Instead of St. George slaying the dragon, the reverse had the Royal Coat of Arms. Each Double Sovereign weighs almost 16 grams of 22ct Gold and is a one-year-only type coin. The £2 pieces, or Double Sovereigns, have always been minted in very limited numbers and no doubt this will be no exception. The coins on offer are in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition and the BU coins are usually rarer and more difficult to get than the proofs. We do not sell anything as an investment, but this is one coin which we think is going to be good. We don’t often say that, but when we do, we are usually right. We managed to get a very small quantity together, by buying up whatever the wholesalers had left. We took a little gamble, but we feel that this gold coin might just turn out to be a winner. Get them while you can, less than 5 of these 2022 Gold Double Sovereigns are available.
This very low mintage Sterling Silver Proof £5 was issued in 2021 to honour the 150th anniversary of the Royal Albert Hall. The famous building is on the reverse and H. M. Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse. Complete in Royal Mint packaging with information booklet and certificate of authenticity. Only 1,650 of these beautiful silver-proof crownsized £5 pieces were made. The mintage for a modern issue is rather low and many people have very fond memories of what they saw at the Royal Albert Hall.

We have a small number of this handsome Silver Proof £5 complete in capsule. They are beautiful and do justice to our Monarch who has dedicated so much of her life to her country and her people.

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.
When the Queen’s husband the H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh died in 2021 the Royal Mint issued a rather handsome commemorative coin to honour him. It is a beautiful low-mintage coin with only a maximum of 7,255 silver-proof coins made. For some reason, we and most other dealers were not offered this important coin. In fact, these are the first pieces we have ever owned. It is entitled ‘A Life Well Lived’ and that is something we can all agree on. You have the Queen on one side and the Duke of Edinburgh on the other side. The coin comes complete in original Royal Mint packaging, with a case, slipcase, certificate, and information leaflet. We don’t know why they were not offered at the time, We guess one or more of the marketing companies bought them all. We have just 112 pieces, so please get this Rare and important silver proof £5 while you can.

In 1990 the late Queen Mother celebrated her 90th birthday and the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 piece to honour that event. They also issued a specimen example in an early type of bubble pack, not as fancy as the modern packaging, not as expensive as the modern ones either. You have a crowned cipher on the reverse with the dates 1900-1990 and H. M. the Queen on the obverse. These are still mint sealed, in a smaller package which is easier to store. We found 25 of them in one of the vault rooms and while they last, you can have one for a great price!
In 2000 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative £5 to honour the Queen Mother’s 100th birthday. It is a most unusual coin as you have a Queen on both sides. The obverse has Queen Elizabeth II and the reverse her mother Queen Elizabeth. It is very unusual and a fitting tribute to the Queen Mother, who, unfortunately, died just 2 years later. The coins on offer are the Sterling Silver Piedfort coins. That means they are twice as thick as the normal silver proofs. The mintage is just 14,850 coins all in choice Proof condition. Today the Mint charges £167.50 for a Piedfort £5 piece. We made a great buy and we are giving you the chance to share in that fantastic purchase. We're not selling them for £167.50, or even £120.00, we're selling them for JUST £99.50 while supply lasts. Yes, you can own a Sterling Silver Piedfort £5 piece for £68.00 less than the Mint is charging today!
The first £5.00 crownsized coin was struck in 1990 and it honoured the late Queen Mother on her 90th birthday, 1900-1990. You have her daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, on the obverse and the entwined letter E & E for the two Elizabeth's on the reverse. Because this was the first crownsized silver $5 coin ever issued, it is especially important. We have gleaming Sterling Silver Proof examples to offer you for your collection. The late Queen Mother was held in very high esteem because of her wartime efforts and also for the support she gave to both her husband and to her daughter. Today the Royal Mint charges between £80-£88 for a silver £5 coin, we think that our price on this first-ever £5 coin is much more interesting.
