2018 is an incredibly significant year for Royal Family as they celebrate a variety of milestones including the Queen’s 65th anniversary of her Coronation, the Prince of Wales’ 70th birthday and Prince George’s 5th Birthday.
To celebrate such an important year for the Royal family, The Royal Mint has issued a new Silver Proof Piedfort £5 coin paying tribute to the four generations of royalty for the very first time.
Piedfort coins are the pinnacle of numismatic craftsmanship and are twice the thickness of a standard coin – a tradition that dates back centuries for the production of coins for Monarchs and other dignitaries. Only a tiny fraction of all British Isles coins each year are struck in this way.
Extremely Limited Edition
This Four Generations of Royalty Silver Piedfort Coin has an edition limit of JUST 2,000– that’s less than HALF the maximum mintage for the standard £5 Silver Proof which has a maximum coin mintage of just 5,000.
Struck in 925/1000 Sterling Silver to an immaculate Proof Finish, the reverse design by heraldic artist Timothy Noad includes the initials of the current four generations and represents the heritage of the House of Windsor. The obverse features the Jody Clark portrait of the Queen.
Your coin comes in its Official Royal Mint presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity and a special accompanying booklet about the four royals.
Strong sell-out history
Because Piedfort coins have considerably smaller edition limits than standard silver proof coins, they have some of the strongest sell-out records of any British coins. The equivalent Sapphire Jubilee issue sold out in just one week.
And don't forget, this coin has a limited edition presentation of just 2,000 so it won't be available for long.
