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 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 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, £5 (The Queen & Prince Philip) 1997 Silver Crownsized Proof

Elizabeth II, £5 (The Queen & Prince Philip) 1997 Silver Crownsized Proof

The Queen and Prince Philip married in 1947 and enjoyed 74 years of marriage together until Philip's death in 2021. The Queen's portrait features on all of the coinage issued during her reign but Prince Philip has only been on few. The first coin that featured Prince Philip was the 25 Pence piece or Crown issued in 1972 for the Wedding Anniversary, there was no portrait but just two initials ‘E & P’ under a crown. In 1997 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative £5 piece for the Golden Wedding of the Queen and Prince Philip and this time his portrait did appear on the coin. You have the Queen wearing her crown and Prince Philip standing beside her. The other side has their two coats of arms under a crown with an anchor below. The first coin to show two conjoined busts was in the reign of William & Mary in 1689. These coins are struck in Sterling Silver in Proof condition. Supplies are limited and it is a great way to honour both the Queen and Prince Philip together on one coin. Diameter = 38.61mm, Weight = 28.28g, Metal = Sterling Silver

Elizabeth II, £5 (Victoria's 200th Anniversary) 2019 Silver Piedfort Proof 69 Ultra Cameo_obv

Elizabeth II, £5 (Victoria's 200th Anniversary) 2019 Silver Piedfort Proof 69 Ultra Cameo

Unfortunately, the Silver Piedfort Proof 70 Ultra Cameo examples of this coin are no longer available. But Steve found a few examples of this £5 Silver Piedfort issued in 2019 struck to honour the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria in Proof 69 Ultra Cameo recently. These coins feature the usual portrait of H. M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. The reverse, in this case, is perhaps more interesting. It shows the portrait of Queen Victoria as used on her Young Head coinage. A steam train, telephone, steamship, and a Penny Farthing bicycle. All things that were invented in her reign. This crownsized £5 comes in Sterling Silver Piedfort or double the normal thickness. A company in America bought the first coins struck by the Royal Mint and then had them slabbed. These Proof 69 Ultra Cameo, were slabbed not only for the grade but also for the fact that they were one of the first 250 coins struck. Forget that, that is a bonus for you. The slab is in a plush display case with a certificate and booklet. We can offer them to you for £110.00.

The_Queens_Beasts_White_Lion_of_Mortimer_Rev

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…

Picture of Elizabeth II, £5 2000 Silver Piedfort

Elizabeth II, £5 2000 Silver Piedfort

In 2000 the Queen Mother celebrated her 100th birthday and the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative crownsized £5 piece to honour this most important event. You have the Queen Mother on one side and her daughter The Queen on the other, be sure you call heads with this coin. We understand that they only struck 14,850 of these Sterling Silver Piedfort, after all, they are double the normal thickness of a Crown and thus quite huge. Each coin comes in the original Royal Mint packaging with the certificate, capsule and outer presentation case. The last time we offered these we quickly sold out, so if you want one for your collection, we suggest that you get in quickly!

Picture of Elizabeth II, 20 Pence 1982 Piedfort

Elizabeth II, 20 Pence 1982 Piedfort

In 1982 the Royal Mint introduced a new denomination, the 20 Pence Piece. As most collectors are aware, it was in fact not a new denomination, but a recreation of the Double Florin which was issued under Queen Victoria from 1887-1890. This coin had many sides and the public immediately liked it. The Royal Mint issued a small quantity of these coins in Sterling Silver Proof but they were double the normal thickness and are called a Piedfort. This is the first Piedfort that the Royal Mint allowed collectors to buy and has proved to be very popular. They are struck in Proof Sterling Silver and come in a blue Royal Mint case of issue.

Picture of Elizabeth II, 25 Pence (Charles & Diana Crown) 1981 Silver Proof FDC in case

Elizabeth II, 25 Pence (Charles & Diana Crown) 1981 Silver Proof FDC in case

Sterling Silver Proof Crown struck to commemorate the marriage of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer. This was the last ever British Crown that the Royal Mint struck, after this, they only struck crown-sized coins but with a face value of £5.00 and not five shillings or 25 pence. Since the first Silver crown was issued under King Edward VI in 1551, a crown has had a face value of five shillings or twenty-five pence and this coin marked the end of that. The crown comes in an Official Royal Mint case with a certificate and is protected in a capsule so you can view both sides without getting your fingerprints on it.

Elizabeth II, 25 Pence (Silver Jubilee) 1977 Proof Sterling Silver - with case

In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee 1952-1977. The Royal Mint, as they did with her Grandfather, George V, issued a special silver commemorative crown or five-shilling piece. It shows the Queen on horseback and was very popular with the public at the time. In fact, it was probably was the height of public celebrations. The 1977 Silver Jubilee Crown in Proof Sterling Silver is one of the most popular of her reign and the best value of her entire series. Today the Mint seems to be issuing a crownsized coin almost every day. Here we offer you Proof Sterling Silver examples of the 1977 Silver Jubilee Crown with the Official Royal Mint case. Remember these silver proof crowns are now over 40 years old and are crown coins not the £5 pieces issued today. We think these silver proof crowns are real coins and not some fantasy £5 piece that has never actually been used.

Picture of Elizabeth II, 25 Pence (Wedding Crown) 1972 Cupronickel Proof

Elizabeth II, 25 Pence (Wedding Crown) 1972 Cupronickel Proof

In 1972 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative 25 Pence or Crown for the Queen & Prince Phillip’s 25th Wedding Anniversary. What most people don’t realise is that there were three different types issued. You have the base metal or cupronickel Crown that was issued in Uncirculated theoretically for circulation and the Sterling Silver Proof issued for collectors, but you also have a third type issued. This is the cupronickel Proof which came in the 1972 Proof Set. The type offered here is the cupronickel proof. It is a simple design with EP for Elizabeth and Phillip on one side and the Queen’s portrait on the other side. It is also the first decimal crown or 25 Pence to be struck for the Queen.

1973  50 Pence EEC Ring of Hands Proof_rev

Elizabeth II, 50 Pence (EEC Ring of Hands) 1973 Proof

There has been all this noise about the Brexit coin released recently by the Royal Mint. We are now going to offer you the first Real Brexit Coin. Namely the old large sized 50 Pence that was issued in 1973, some 47 years ago when we joined the European Union. You cannot leave unless you are already a member! This coin is the old large style 50 Pence and it depicted 9 hands of the European Community holding each other in a circle. Far fewer members, far easier to get things done. This original First Real Brexit Coin was struck in cupro-nickel in both Uncirculated and Proof condition. They are a lot more difficult to find than the new Brexit coin and are of course 47 years old and to be honest perhaps cheaper.

Elizabeth II, Crown 1960 EF

In 1960 the Royal Mint issued a Special Crown for the British Exhibition in New York. It is without doubt, the most difficult of the Queen Elizabeth II Crowns to obtain. The mintage figure is just over a million coins, but they almost never turn up, where are they all? On the obverse is the Queen, the first time her portrait had been on a crown and on the reverse are four shields. Here we offer this coin in Extremely Fine.

Elizabeth II, Five Pence (Pair) 1990 Silver Proof - in original case

In 1990 the Royal Mint reduced the size of the 5 Pence piece to the size we use today. They did strike some of the large sized 1990 5 Pence pieces but they were only in the Mint and Proof Sets. For collectors they issued a fantastic set of the Large and Small sized 1990 5 Pence pieces in Proof Sterling Silver. We have just managed to find a small group of this difficult to get set, up North. You get both the Large sized 1990 5 Pence in Proof Sterling Silver and the Small sized 1990 5 Pence in Proof Sterling Silver. The pair come in the Official Royal Mint presentation case. Not an easy set to get and the 1990 Large sized 5 Pence is really a collectors coin. Only a restricted number of sets in stock and when these are gone, who knows where we will find any more…

Solomon Islands, £5 Churchill Silver Proof 2015

In 2015 the Royal Mint issued a crownsized £5 to honour Winston S. Churchill, our wartime Prime Minister. We have offered the Sterling Silver Piedfort of this coin before, but this is the first time that we offer the regular thickness. It is struck in Proof Sterling Silver rather than the double thickness of the Piedfort. You have H. M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and Sir Winston Churchill in a rather interesting and we think beautiful portrait on the reverse. You have had the Piedfort now is the time for the ‘regular’ VIP Sterling Silver Proof. Churchill is always popular, and we don't have that many coins available...
