Limited availability: the King Canute £5 DateStamp™ Issue

**Already 90% Sold**

A brand new £5 coin has been issued by the United Kingdom to mark the 1000th Anniversary of King Canute’s coronation - the Viking conqueror and first ‘King of all England’.

To further mark this moment in time, just 500 of these new £5 coins have been reserved for a special DateStamp™ Issue and 50% have already sold

Struck to an unblemished Brilliant Uncirculated finish, each coin has been officially postmarked by Royal Mail with the date of the coronation anniversary – 06.01.17.

The obverse carries the Jody Clark portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II while the reverse features a design depicting King Canute by Lee R. Jones.

What's more, each coin comes protectively sealed in a tamper-proof numismatic capsule with its own unique serial number so you can even register it online to receive your official DateStamp™ registration certificate.

Importantly, because of the special one-day-only postmark, just 500 of these DateStamp™ Issues will ever be made available and 90% have already sold. 

Add yours to your basket now to avoid being left disappointed.
