This year marks the millennial anniversary of the coronation of King Canute – the first king to rule over a truly united realm of England.
To mark this important milestone in Great Britain’s history, a brand new 5oz Silver Coin has just been issued.
5oz of pure silver with an antique finish
The reverse carries a design based on an original medieval Canute penny coin from the Viking era. This 1000 year old design has been painstakingly replicated on a large 65mm diameter pure silver coin blank weighing a staggering 5oz (155.53g).
But what makes this coin even more collectable is the antique finish – a sought-after and unusual addition not often seen on British Isles issues. Take a look at the video to see for yourself how stunning this coin really is.
Each coin is finished by hand
Once the coin has been struck, an antique finish is applied by hand to each coin individually creating a rich tone and grained appearance which gives a stunning aged effect.
The antiquing process also means that the finish on every coin varies slightly – no two collectors will own exactly the same coin.
It also means that you can touch the coin if you wish, to feel as well as see, the incredible texture and detail of the design.
Tiny edition – Just 250 available worldwide
Usually British Isles Silver 5oz issues have editions of 450-500, with some UK releases even issued in their thousands – the fact that the worldwide edition limit of this coin has been set at just 250 pieces makes it extremely rare in comparison.
Officially approved the Buckingham Palace, your coin is presented in a deluxe wooden case with accompanying Certificate of Authenticity. Considering the design, the sought-after antique finish and tiny edition limit, this coin is expected to sell out quickly. There will not be enough to satisfy collector demand.
