Limited to JUST 500: NEW Walter Scott £2 DateStamp™ Issue

The Royal Mint has issued a BRAND NEW UK £2 to honour mark the 250th anniversary of Sir Walter Scott's birth.

Sir Walter Scott is widely considered to be the pioneer of the historical novel and was a significant influence on many of the 19th century’s prominent writers.

He wove fiction and history together to create some of his most celebrated works, including Ivanhoe, Waverley, Rob Roy, The Heart of Mid-Lothian, and The Bride of Lammermoor.

JUST 500 available worldwide – sell-out likely

Thousands of the new Brilliant Uncirculated Sir Walter Scott £2 Coins will be struck, however only 500 will be available in this exclusive DateStamp™ Issue – an extremely limited way to own this new UK £2 coin.

DateStamp™ issues are always incredibly popular with collectors and have a strong sell-out history. In fact, previous £2 issues – such as the VE Day £2 – have completely SOLD OUT within days! All signs suggest this issue is likely to sell-out just as quickly.

Postmarked with the 250th anniversary of Sir Walter Scott’s birth

Your coin will be officially postmarked by Royal Mail with the exact date of the 250th anniversary of Sir Walter Scott’s birth – 15th August 2021.

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.

Remember, because of the special one-day-only postmark, just 500 of these issues can ever be produced. A sell-out is expected, so act now to ensure you add this issue to your collection.
