Two Pence 2008 POW Feathers Silver Proof

In 2008, the Royal Mint introduced new reverse designs on our coinage. One of the most distinctive and memorable designs on the whole of our Decimal coinage was the Prince of Wales feathers on the Two Pence coin which had been struck every year since it was introduced in 1971. To mark the final use of this design on the Two Pence coin, the Royal Mint struck some in silver proof and it is these special coins that we offer you here, but we have a limited number available.

Victoria Silver Groat Fair_obv

Victoria Silver Groat Fair

Firstly a Groat is 4 old pence (4d) or 1/60th of a Pound. These have the Young Head of Queen Victoria on them and many were also struck for use in our overseas Colonies, but they were still legal tender and used in this country. You have the youthful portrait of Queen Victoria on one side and a rather beautiful rendition of Britannia seated on the reverse. One of the most underappreciated Victorian coins. They were issued from 1838-1861 and are are struck in Sterling Silver and are at least 160 years old. Let’s face it many collectors don’t even know that a Groat was ever issued. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you. Please do not ask for specific dates as they will no doubt be the rare dates.

2009 Silver Proof £1 Special_obv

2009 Silver Proof £1 Special

The Royal Mint was charging £49.50 for a Sterling Silver Proof Pound. We have just bought one hundred pieces of the 2009 Silver Proof Pound, all in their original black cases of issue with their certificates just as they were issued by the Royal Mint. You have a shield on one side and the Rank-Broadley bust of the Queen on the other side. They are struck in Proof Sterling Silver and were sold by the Royal Mint some 15 years ago. We don’t know what the Mint charged then, all I know is that today the Royal Mint charged £49.50 for the 2012 Silver Proof Pound.
