In order to mark Her Majesty becoming Britain's longest reigning monarch in 2015, The Royal Mint authorised the release of a special commemorative portrait by James Butler.
Now you have the chance to own one of the coins featuring this rare and unusual portrait - the UK 2015 Longest Reigning Monarch Silver Proof Piedfort £5.
2015 Longest Reigning Monarch Silver Proof Piedfort £5
The fact that this coin features the special James Butler portrait, alongside it being issued for one of the most important milestones in Her Majesty's reign, makes this an absolute must-have for any collectors.
But what's more, with a mintage of just 3,171 coins, the 2015 Longest Reigning Monarch Silver Piedfort has one of the lowest ever mintages for a UK £5 Piedfort.
Piedforts are struck on superior double-thickness blanks, so are twice the thickness of their standard Silver equivalent and contain twice as much Silver. But most importantly they’re always issued with extremely low edition limits, and this coin is certainly no exception.
Just 21 coins available - no longer available from The Royal Mint
Unsurprisingly, it now stands as a highly sought-after Royal Mint back-issue – especially because it is no longer available from the Mint.
We have managed to secure 21 coins from the Secondary Market which are now available for Westminster collectors. But you’ll need to be quick, this limited stock won’t be available for long!
