Your chance to own the UK's VERY FIRST Decimal Crown for just £5

Before £5 coins, major Royal events and national celebrations were marked by the Royal Mint with Crown Coins - struck to the exact same specification as today's £5 coins.

And now, as an exclusive offer, you can own the UK's very first UK Decimal Crown for just £5.

This historic UK coin was issued in 1972 to mark the Queen's Silver Wedding Anniversary and is the first of just four decimal crown coins ever to be struck.

I understand I will receive other coins at the priority
collector's price of £12.50 (+p&p) in the Change Checker
Decimal Crown Collection at monthly intervals. I am under
no obligation and may return any coins within 10 days. I
may stop collecting at any time.
