2020 marked the historic 150th anniversary of the British Red Cross, and to celebrate 150 years of connecting human kindness with human crisis, The Royal Mint issued a £5 coin range.
But there’s one coin in the range that really stands out, and is surely going to be the most collectible…
British Red Cross Silver Piedfort £5
Piedfort coins stand out for many reasons and are some of the most collectible issues around. Here’s why:
- Impeccably struck from .925 silver to a perfect proof finish.
- Double the thickness of a standard coin, therefore containing twice the amount of silver.
- Low edition limits resulting in rapid sell-out rates.
The bespoke design of this coin, by Henry Gray, perfectly captures the organisation’s credo of selflessness, compassion, and goodwill. The iconic Red Cross emblem is captured in scarlet at the centre of the coin – a feature that is sure to make this coin a future collecting priority because colour is very rarely seen on £5 coins.
JUST 1,150 available worldwide
What’s perhaps more important though, than its size and design, is its edition limit – JUST 1,150 worldwide. This makes it THREE TIMES RARER than the standard silver coin and means it’s an incredibly limited edition issue.
This is one of the LOWEST Piedfort edition limits that we've ever seen. When Remembrance Day featured on a UK coin for the first time – also featuring colour – all 1,500 coins completely SOLD OUT!
Considering the global impact of The British Red Cross this issue is sure to attract worldwide attention. So much so that I suspect the tiny number of coins available – only 1,150 – will not be enough to meet demand. We expect a very swift sell out.
