Incredibly SCARCE Brand New £2 Coin issued


Incredibly SCARCE Brand New £2 Coin issued

***Limited to JUST 995***

This year marks 60 years since the establishment of Jersey Zoo. To commemorate such a momentous occasion, a special Silver Proof £2 coin has been authorised for release by Jersey Treasury and fully approved by Her Majesty the Queen.

Marking the 60th anniversary of Jersey Zoo

Jersey Zoo was founded by Gerald Durrell in 1959 and is also headquarters to Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. Jersey Zoo is renowned internationally for its incredible work saving species from extinction.

Sterling Silver

The coin has been struck from .925 Sterling Silver to a perfect proof finish - the best possible finish available on a coin. It features a stunning full-colour illustration of a Gorilla, specially commissioned by Jersey-born artist Rosemary Blackmore.

Strict worldwide edition limit – Just 995 available

Importantly, just 995 have been issued for release worldwide. That’s an extremely low edition limit for a Silver Proof £2 Coin and almost FIVE TIMES RARER than the most recent UK Silver Proof £2 release.

Silver Proof £2 Coins such as this, are extremely popular amongst collectors, and given that JUST 995 of these coins will be made available worldwide, its bound to be one of the most sought after issues around.

Donation to Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust

This wonderful coin has been developed in partnership with Jersey Zoo and for every coin sold a donation will go directly to the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, the international charity that Jersey Zoo is part of.

What's more, you can secure your Silver Proof £2 today for a down payment of just £16 (+p&p). Just tick the instalment option at checkout.
