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.

Elizabeth II, (Slabbed) Churchill £5 Piedfort, 2015

In 2015 the Royal Mint issued a Silver Proof £5 to honour Sir Winston Churchill. For VIP collectors they even issued a piedfort or double the normal thickness of this crownsized coin in Proof Sterling Silver. We believe that when it was issued they sold it for £155.00. Someone in the United States bought a quantity and had them ‘slabbed’; that is graded and put into plastic holders to protect them. Well they came out Gem Proof grading 70 out a possible 70 points.
