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.
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.
Last year (2018) Prince Charles celebrated his 70th birthday. The Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 piece to honour the event.
You have Prince Charles on one side and his Mother H. M. The Queen on the other side. It is a £5 piece that many collectors over looked. What with all the coins the Royal Mint is issuing it is not hard to over look something.
We offer the Official Royal Mint bubble pack £5 issued for Prince Charles’ 70th birthday. As many of you know, the coins issued in the bubble packs are actually much better quality than the circulation issues. We call them Specimens to denote their much better quality. Own one of these 2018 Prince Charles £5 for his 70th birthday sealed in the original Royal Mint package for just £17.50, it may well be one you need.
In 1990 the late Queen Mother celebrated her 90th birthday and the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 piece to honour that event. They also issued a specimen example in an early type of bubble pack, not as fancy as the modern packaging, not as expensive as the modern ones either.
You have a crowned cipher on the reverse with the dates 1900-1990 and H. M. the Queen on the obverse. These are still mint sealed, in a smaller package which is easier to store. We found 25 of them in one of the vault rooms and while they last, you can have one for a great price!
In 2017 the Royal Mint issued a handsome £5 to celebrate the
Queen and Prince Philip’s 70th wedding anniversary, their
Platinum. They called it ‘a story of love and loyalty’, as royalists,
it is something we totally agree with. And for once the Royal Mint
issued a coin that we think fully reflects the time and the mood.
You have the conjoined busts of the Queen and Prince Philip on
one side and the Queen on horseback on the other side. The certificate
this comes with the coin says there is a maximum of 15,950
to be issued, but if previous Royal Mint issues are anything to go by, the mintage will be much lower.
Each striking Proof coin comes in the Royal Mint packaging with certificate. This is a rather beautiful piece
and supplies are limited.
