This year we mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. On 8th May 1945, Allied forces of WWII accepted the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany, signalling the end of the Second World War.
To mark the occasion and honour this milestone anniversary, a BRAND NEW UK £2 has been authorised for release.
The Royal Mint has released a number of precious metal versions of the new £2, but there is one particular coin that stands out above all others. That’s the Silver Proof Piedfort issue.
UK 2020 VE Day 75th Anniversary Silver Piedfort £2 Coin
Struck from .925 Sterling Silver to an immaculate proof finish this brand new £2 coin has been designed by Dominique Evans, and captures the jubilation of the crowds celebrating the end of the war.
Visually Piedforts are a real talking point. They are struck on superior double-thickness blanks, normally in Sterling Silver and finished to the very highest proof quality. Double the thickness means they are double the weight of the Silver Proof issue and contain double the amount of Silver.
Very few collectors can own this issue
Piedforts are the pinnacle of Royal Mint craftsmanship and have some of the fastest sell-out rates due to their high collectability and low edition limits.
The single coin edition limit for the VE Day £2 Silver Proof Piedfort is JUST 1,635 – that’s UNDER HALF of the edition limit of the standard Silver Proof issue.
This remarkably low edition limit is very surprising considering the historic importance of the commemorative. This is surely going to make this issue even more sought-after amongst collectors. Expect a very swift sell-out.
We have a small allocation for our collectors. And they are all expected to go – quickly.
The good news is you can secure this coin for your collection today with a deposit of just £25 (+p&p), followed by 4 further interest-free instalments.
Remember, the 75th Anniversary of VE Day is one of the most significant anniversaries of this year, so demand for commemoratives will be high. Make sure you do not miss out on this one.
