UK 2017 Jane Austen Silver Piedfort £2 Coin
Secure the brand new limited edition UK Jane Austen Silver Piedfort £2 Coin
A brand new £2 coin has been struck to celebrate one of the world’s best-loved authors – Jane Austen.
Although her books were largely unappreciated during her lifetime, readers across the world began a love affair that has now endured for 200 years. So it is entirely appropriate that she is celebrated on a UK coin.
The United Kingdom has released a number of precious metal versions of the new Jane Austen £2 coin. But this one in particular stands out above all others.
That’s the Silver Proof Piedfort issue.
Twice the weight. HALF the edition limit.
Piedforts are struck on superior double-thickness blanks - normally in sterling silver and finished to the very highest proof finish. There’s a dramatically noticeable weight difference when you hold them too - and visually - they’re a real talking point.Importantly, this special Piedfort issue has an edition limit of just 2,500 that’s HALF the edition limit of the standard silver proof issue. Unsurprisingly, they have a strong sell-out record.
Struck from 925/1000 Sterling Silver to a pristine Proof finish, this coin features a silhouette of Jane Austen inspired by a portrait and the National Portrait Gallery, London. Designed by Dominique Evans, this silhouette is framed and surrounded by stripes as though on a Regency-era wall. The obverse features the Jody Clark portrait of Her Majesty the Queen.
Your coin comes in its official Royal Mint Presentation Case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
This coin has a limited edition presentation of just 2,500 so it won’t be available for long. Order yours today.
