A customer asked why the Royal Mint was charging £20.00 for a circulated 1937
brass threepence and the new non-round pound based on the old brass threepence? We looked on their website and saw the pair of coins in a cardboard folder and couldn’t believe my eyes.
So thank you. It took some time to get enough 1937 brass threepences to offer them to you, but here goes.
You get a nice circulated 1937 George VI brass threepence, the first year that this coin was issued and a Brilliant
Uncirculated 2017 non-round pound. Now there is no folder but our price for the pair is £4.95, which means you are
not paying £15.05 for a card folder that you wouldn’t want anyway.
Our customer was right and he gave us the idea to go out and find the coins and save you a significant amount of money. No card folder is worth
all that much money. Buy it from us and you only pay about a quarter of what the Royal Mint wants in a folder.
In 2008 the Royal Mint celebrated the 450th Anniversary of the Accession of Queen
Elizabeth I 1558-2008 with the issue of a crownsized £5 piece. They issued this
piece in cupronickel, Sterling Silver and Gold, it is the Silver piece that we now offer
You have Elizabeth I on one side and Elizabeth II on the other side. Today the Royal
Mint is charging about £80.00 for a Silver Proof £5 piece.
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 the two Collector’s editions as issued by the
Royal Mint. Featured here is the Sterling Silver proof variant.
This was the last of the large sized £2 pieces and in our opinion the most attractive
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. This issue we offer the collector’s versions in Silver.
Although they are struck in Proof Sterling Silver, to imitate the base metal bi-metallic currency issues, the
Royal Mint gold plated the outer rim of the Silver Proof Coins. All coins come in a protective capsule as issued by the mint.
In 1996 the Royal Mint did something they had never done before. They issued a Proof Set of the then current 1996 coins but, every coin was struck in Proof Sterling Silver. You
have the 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p 50p and £1 all struck in Proof Sterling Silver. Here we present the 5p.
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. You have the Queen on the obverse and the Egyptian Arch on the reverse. Each coin comes in a protective capsule as issued and is in gleaming Brilliant Proof condition.
