To mark Prince Philip's 70 years of Service in 2017 The Royal Mint issued a Silver Proof Piedfort £5 coin.
Piedfort coins are the pinnacle of Royal Mint craftsmanship and are twice the thickness of a standard coin meaning they also contain double the silver. They are struck to a proof finish using specially prepared dies to create a frosted design. Only a tiny fraction of all UK coins each year are struck in this way and that makes them one of the rarest and most sought after specifications for collectors.
The skill and time needed to produce coins in a piedfort specification means that only a tiny edition limit can be issued. The UK 2017 Prince Philip Piedfort coin has an edition limit of just 1,250 worldwide, it is the lowest EVER edition limit for a UK £5 Piedfort.
We have a very limited number available for UK collectors, and considering this is the rarest ever Silver Proof Piedfort £5, it won't be available for long.
Each coin comes in its own Official Royal Mint Presentation Case and with a Certificate of Authenticity.
You can secure yours today for an initial payment of £35 (+p&p) (followed by just 4 interest-free monthly instalments of £35).
Remember this is one of the rarest and most sought after specifications for UK coins - act now to secure yours by clicking add to basket below.
