UK Piedfort Sapphire Jubilee Silver Proof Coin
Own the Limited Edition UK Sapphire Jubilee Silver Proof Piedfort Coin
This Sterling Silver Proof Piedfort UK £5 Coin has been issued by The Royal Mint to celebrate the Her Majesty's Sapphire Jubilee. She is the first British Monarch in history to reach the incredible milestone of 65 years on the throne.
Three times more limited
Importantly, this special Piedfort issue has a single coin edition limit of just 2,500 pieces making it more than THREE times more limited than the standard Silver Proof £5 coin, which has a single coin edition limit of 8,000.
Twice the weight
The 'Piedfort' strike of the coin is twice as thick as the standard issue, which means it has been struck on double-thickness blanks - a tradition that dates back centuries for the production of coins for Monarchs and other dignitaries.
It is a tradition still continued by The Royal Mint today, who strike a small number of Piedfort coins for each commemorative issue.
Struck in 925/1000 Silver to a pristine Proof finish favoured by collectors, the reverse design by Glyn Davies features a quote from the speech the Queen gave on her 21st birthday alongside the Coronation crown showing the Stuart Sapphire.
Your coin comes in its Official Royal Mint presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity and an accompanying booklet written in collaboration with Royal Correspondent Jennie Bond.
Strong sell-out history
Because Piedfort coins have considerably smaller edition limits than standard silver proof coins, they have some of the strongest sell-out records of any British coins. And don't forget, this coin has a limited edition presentation of just 2,500 so it won't be available for long.
