The Duke of Wellington 250th Anniversary Piedfort Coin

2019 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of the Duke of Wellington. To commemorate the Duke and his remarkable life, a brand new coin has been issued.

Famous for defeating Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 and for serving twice as Prime Minister, the Duke of Wellington is one of Britain’s most loved military heroes.

The Duke of Wellington 250th Anniversary Piedfort Coin

The design features a specially commissioned depiction of the Duke of Wellington by renowned artist, David Young. Each coin comes complete with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Due to the importance of this anniversary, the Mint has struck this coin to a Piedfort specification. Double the thickness, Piedfort coins are typically issued with around half the edition of the standard coin. As a result they have a strong sell out record, ensuring their long-term collectability.

Double Thickness

Being double thickness, this coin weighs 50 grams – almost twice as much as the standard specification, it's also been expertly plated in 24 Carat Gold to a pristine Proof finish.

Proof is the highest grade of finish found on collectable coins. They are produced using a specially prepared die which strikes the coin several times to create a high quality frosted and mirrored finish and enhanced definition.

Remember this is a double-thickness “Piedfort” Poof coin that has been plated in 24 Carat gold, you'll need to act fast.
