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.

Victoria, 1887 Silver Shilling, VF

In 1887, Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee, and the Royal Mint was allowed to change her portrait for the first time since 1838. Unfortunately, Queen Victoria hated her new portrait on the Shilling... Coincraft has a nice group of the first year of issue, 1887. The coins are struck in Sterling Silver and are in Very Fine Condition. Considering they are now 130 years old, this is quite outstanding.
