DateStamp Rio Opening Ceremony Silver Proof £2 - The Westminster Collection International

DateStamp Rio Opening Ceremony Silver Proof £2

  • £125.00

Available to just 250 collectors

With its official Royal Mail postmark dated 5th August 2016, this brand new limited edition DateStamp™ issue perfectly commemorates the Opening Ceremony of the Games.

Struck to a Proof Finish

At its centre is an official UK £2 Coin struck by the Royal Mint to commemorate the Handover to Rio. The reverse design depicts an iconic image of a baton being passed from one Olympian to another, and is surrounded by the words ‘London 2012’ and ‘Rio 2016'. It was originally issued to mark the closing of the 2012 Games as London handed over to Rio de Janeiro.

Each coin has been struck to a superior proof finish - the highest grade of finish found on collectable coins and a favourite of all serious coin collectors. The definition of the design has been enhanced by a specially prepared die which strikes the coin several times to create a high quality frosted and mirrored finish.

Limited to 250 collectors

Your coin has been safely encapsulated within a tamper proof capsule alongside a Red First Class Stamp, and officially postmarked by Royal Mail with the date of the opening ceremony.

Importantly, because of the special one-day-only postmark, no more can ever be released – the edition limit of 250 is set in stone.

What's more, each coin also has its own unique serial number, so you can register online to receive your personal DateStamp™ Registration Certificate
