UK Silver Piedfort issued to celebrate The Royal Mint’s history


UK Silver Piedfort issued to celebrate The Royal Mint’s history

Did you know that The Royal Mint was housed at the Tower of London for over 500 years?

Now, the incredible history of The Royal Mint is celebrated on a BRAND NEW UK £5 coin that is part of the Tower of London collection. And it’s been issued in an incredibly limited edition Silver Piedfort specification…

Prestigious Piedfort specification

Piedfort coins are the pinnacle of Royal Mint craftsmanship. Issued to mark the most important subjects, they are by far some of the most collectable issues. Here’s why:

  • Twice the weight and thickness of a regular silver proof coin.
  • Struck from double the amount of .925 Silver to a perfect proof finish.
  • Low edition limits resulting in some of the fastest sell-out rates around.

The design incorporates the Tower’s iconic Norman arched window alongside an Edward I long-cross penny – what would have been one of the first coins struck when the Mint moved to the Tower in 1279!

This coin is without a doubt a fitting tribute to The Royal Mint, and the pivotal role has played in the UK’s coinage over the years.

Double the silver, OVER THREE times as limited

Importantly, this new £5 coin has a single coin edition limit of just 400 – that’s LESS than a THIRD of the edition limit of the standard silver proof version and makes it incredibly limited.

When you consider that previous Tower of London coins, with far higher edition limits of 950, have completely SOLD OUT, surely this limited number will not last long.

Given the historical significance of this coin, it’s sure to be highly sought-after by serious collectors in years to come. Make sure you don’t miss out by taking quick action today.
