Last year the Royal Mint issued a series of crownsized £2 pieces containing an ounce
of pure Silver. They called the series ‘Landmarks of Britain’. So far just 3 different
pieces have been issued, perhaps there will be more or perhaps not. We just never know
what the Royal Mint is doing
This piece has the Lion on the plinths along with Nelson’s Column on the reverse and
H. M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. Each coin is Prooflike Uncirculated with both
a brilliant and a matt surface and they come in a capsule.
Each crownsized £2 coin contains an ounce of pure silver and is of course, legal tender.
Our supplier has almost run out of stock and maybe this will become one of the
winners of the year from the Royal Mint. Get them while you can, we don’t know if we
will be able to get any more in the future.
We have been able to get first strikes of the New 2019 Silver Britannia
coins. They are 1 ounce of 999 Fine silver and in Prooflike Uncirculated condition, they are beautiful
and choice and wouldn’t they make excellent holiday gifts?
You have Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and a standing figure of Britannia on the reverse. They
look almost like a Proof and remember these are early first strikes and just beautiful.
Be one of the first to have the New 2019 Silver Britannia, we were only allowed 300 pieces, so please
get in quickly if you want one in time for the holiday season. Of course we will have more later, but these
are early strikes and we have them now!
When Prince Henry of Wales married Meghan Markle on the 19th of May 2018, the Royal Mint
issued a special commemorative £5.00 coin. They also issued a specimen or Prooflike example in
a full colour bubble pack, which is what we are now offering you.
They come sealed as issued by the Royal Mint. You have the couple facing each other on the reverse,
with his Grandmother on the obverse. Not the normal coins made for circulation these are Prooflike and
in their original Bubble Pack. Supplies are limited and we don’t know what the original issue price was.
This is a wonderful offer the 2016 Silver Britannia in Proof condition in the Official Royal
Mint case and with all the packaging. You don’t often see the Britannia in Proof, as we
believe the mintages are rather low.
These were bought on The Continent from one of the Royal Mint distributors. Beautiful
coins, original Royal Mint packaging and nice to look at. We think this is the first time that we
have any quantity of any Silver Britannia in Proof condition. Even so our supply just might be
large enough for the demand we are expecting, after all it is rather beautiful.
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
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.
In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee, that is 25 years as our Queen. The
Royal Mint issued a special commemorative Crown to honour the event and it was only the
second decimal Crown or 25 pence.
It was issued in cupro-nickel for general usage and Proof Sterling Silver for collectors. The
demand was high as everyone loved the Queen and in those days were not afraid to show it.
Now this crown is 41 years old and is still the best value in Proof Silver British crowns that
you can find.
Today the Royal Mint charges about £80.00 for a silver Proof crownsized coin.
