UK 2017 New 12-Sided Silver Piedfort £1
On 28th March 2017, The Royal Mint will release 1.4 billion brand new £1 coins into circulation in what is the single biggest change to the UK’s coinage since decimalisation.
To mark this moment, the United Kingdom is releasing a limited number of precious metal versions of the new 12-sided £1 coin. But there is one particular coin that stands out above all others.
That’s the Silver Proof Piedfort issue.
Twice the weight. More than five times as limited.
Piedfort coins are the pinnacle of Royal Mint craftsmanship and are twice the thickness of a standard coin. Only a tiny fraction of all UK coins each year are struck in this way.
More than five times as limited
Importantly, just 4,500 new 12-Sided £1 Piedfort coins will ever be struck - that's less than FIVE TIMES the maximum mintage for the standard £1 Silver Proof.
Struck from 925/1000 Sterling Silver to a pristine proof finish favoured by collectors, the reverse features the ‘Nations of the Crown’ design by David Pearce featuring the four foral emblems of the United Kingdom. Your coin comes in its Royal Mint Presentation Case with Certificate of Authenticity.
The double-thickness Piedfort edition is likely to be the first of the new £1 sell-outs.
Don't forget, this coin has a limited edition presentation of just 4,500 so it won't be available for long. Order yours today.
