JUST 588 available – Year of the Ox DateStamp™

Have you heard of lunar coins?

They are one of the most exciting opportunities in international coin collecting.

For over 40 years mints from around the world have celebrated Chinese New Year with lunar coins – and their popularity continues to skyrocket, to the point where the lunar theme is the largest ongoing coin programme on the planet.

The Royal Mint released a lunar coin for 2021 to mark the Year of the Ox and now you have the chance to secure your very own in a limited edition DateStamp™ issue.

Here’s what sets this issue apart from all other Lunar issues:

  • It features the official UK 2021 Year of the Ox £5 coin issued by The Royal Mint.
  • The coin is expertly struck from base metal to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish – a higher standard to the coins you find in your change.
  • It is protectively encapsulated in a tamper-proof capsule and is postmarked by Royal Mail with the date of the Chinese New Year – 12th February 2021.
  • Each DateStamp™ issue has its own serial number, making each one unique and confirming its place in the edition limit.

Only 588 available worldwide

In a nod to the Chinese lucky number 8, this DateStamp™ Issue has a strict worldwide edition limit of JUST 588. The Royal Mint will produce thousands of Brilliant Uncirculated Year of the Ox coins, so securing it in this format is one of the most limited ways possible.

And because of the official Royal Mail one-day only postmark, no more can ever be released. That’s why DateStamp™ is consistently highly-sought after and what makes them some of the most collectable issues around.

Secure yours for JUST £24.99 (+p&p)

We will only have 588 of these DateStamp™ coins postmarked with the Chinese New Year date – 12th February 2021 – so you’ll need to act quickly.
