Includes the sought after Coronation Penny!

This splendid set comprises nine coins from the Half Crown to the Farthing, all dated 1953 and guaranteed genuine. What sets these coins apart, however, is that each has been carefully plated in Sterling Silver, and the designs have been painstakingly picked out in 22 Carat Gold – making this a unique numismatic tribute to Her Majesty the Queen.

The Sought After Coronation Penny

As with any classic coins, as time moves on they become harder and harder to find. This fact applies to all the coins in your set, but one coin stands out amongst the rest – the 1953 Coronation Penny.

Demand for newly struck pennies was low around the time of the accession of Queen Elizabeth II - in fact no quantities of pennies were struck for circulation until 1961. However, a new Monarch could not be crowned without new currency, so a small quantity of 1953 pennies were struck for commemorative purposes and issued within a set never intended for circulation. A few crept out into general circulation though and consequently they have become a collector priority, and one of these pennies stands proudly as the centrepiece of your Queen Elizabeth II 1953 Numismatic Set.

Fittingly, only 1,953 of these collections will be made available, and will make an ideal set to hand down to your future generations. A permanent and timeless reminder of one of our most popular monarchs, this set is perfect to evoke the memories of 1953.

So to clarify, your Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Numismatic Set contains nine coins, from the Half Crown to the Farthing, all plated in Sterling Silver and highlighted with 22 Carat Gold. Only with the advent of sophisticated modern techniques have we been able to produce a set like this, and even so the Gold Plating process is still painstaking and time consuming.

Each set comes complete in a bespoke Wooden Presentation Case with a Numbered Certificate of Authenticity confirming the legitimacy of the coins and the sets limited edition status.

To guarantee your exclusive 1953 Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Numismatic Set please place your order today. Only 1,953 sets will be made available to collectors worldwide.
