Extremely limited: 1oz Silver Proof Year of the Rat Coin

Have you heard of lunar coins?

They are one of the most exciting opportunities in international coin collecting.

Lunar coins celebrate the Chinese Zodiac and have become something of an international phenomenon. And since 2014, The Royal Mint has issued their own 1oz Silver Coin to celebrate the occasion. 

But the vast majority have been snapped up by collectors in the Far East, making this a British coin very few British collectors ever see – and even less will be able to own.

Smallest edition limit yet for a 1oz Silver Lunar Coin

This year we will celebrate the Year of the Rat – and The Royal Mint have released a brand new coin struck from one full ounce of .999 Silver to a perfect proof finish to mark it.

But with the Lunar theme being the largest ongoing coin programme in the world, there is no doubt there will be a lot of interest in this issue.

Especially as just 2,588 coins have been authorised for release – that’s the smallest edition limit yet!

Key specification for collectors

What’s more, the 1oz Silver Proof is a key specification for any collection, and is consistently highly sought-after. Which is why it’s surprising that just 2,588 single coins will be available worldwide.

This is surely not going to be enough to meet collector demand across the globe. Especially when you consider that the Yale of Beaufort 1oz Silver Proof Coin with a far higher edition limit of 4,250, completely sold out at the Mint in a matter of hours.

Act NOW – secure yours for just £17.00

The good news is we have managed to secure an extremely limited number for our collectors, and if you act now you can secure this prestigious coin for your collection.

It is available at the Royal Mint issue price of £85, but better yet you can choose to pay just £17.00 (+p&p) today and split the cost across 5 equal interest-free monthly instalments.
