2017 marks the Centenary of the House of Windsor.
To celebrate this moment, the United Kingdom has released a series of £5 commemorative issues. But there is one particular coin that stands out above all others.
That's the Silver Piedfort issue.
Piedfort coins are the pinnacle of Royal Mint craftsmanship and are twice the thickness of a standard coin. Only a tiny fraction of all UK coins each year are struck in this way.
Unsurprisingly Piedfort coins have a history of quick sell-outs – the Sapphire Jubilee £5 Piedfort released earlier this year sold out in just under a week.
Less than HALF the edition limit
Importantly, this special Piedfort issue has a single coin edition limit of just 4,000 pieces - that’s less than HALF the edition limit of the standard Silver Proof £5 issue.
Struck from 925/1000 Sterling Silver to a pristine Proof Finish, this coin features a design based on the Badge of the House of Windsor approved by George VI, surrounded by oak leaves representing strength, patience and longevity, and acorns as a symbol of prosperity.
Your coin comes in its own Official Royal Mint Presentation Case and with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Just 150 available
We currently have 150 coins available for our UK collectors and with a significantly lower edition limit than the standard silver proof issue, this double-thickness Piedfort edition is likely to be the first of the House of Windsor sell-outs.
