Rugby is one of the largest sports in the world and excitement is due to reach fever pitch this year as the Rugby Football Union – the elite governing body of all grassroots rugby – celebrates its 150th Anniversary.
To mark this momentous occasion in British sport, a brand new coin has been issued by Jersey Treasury – the Official RFU 150th Anniversary Silver Proof £2 Coin.
Silver Proof Quality
The coin has been stunningly struck from .925 Solid Silver to a pristine Proof finish, with the addition of vivid colour to bring the reverse to life.
The Official RFU 150th Anniversary Rose Logo, carefully adorns the reverse and the obverse features a portrait of Her Majesty by engraver Ian Rank-Broadley.
Proof coins are individually struck with the punch hitting the blank several times to create the perfect, flawless “Proof” finish, and also create maximum contrast between the frosted design and perfect mirror-like background of the coin. It’s this superior quality that makes Proof coins more sought after amongst serious collectors.
Just 1,995 WORLDWIDE
The UK’s 1999 Rugby World £2 Coin remains one of the most popular ever issued. Now over 20 years old and mass produced, it’s extremely hard to get hold of on the secondary market. In fact a whopping 9,665 of those Silver £2 coins were struck for collectors.
But this new Silver Proof £2 coin has been struck with a DRAMATICALLY smaller edition limit. With only 1,995 coins available for collectors worldwide, it’s ALMOST 5 TIMES SCRARCER than the UK’s 1999 Rugby Silver £2 coin so it’s easy to see why a fast sell-out is expected.
This stunning new coin has also been fully approved by The RFU and is the only Silver Proof coin to be released on its own. So not only will this release appeal to rugby fans, but coin collectors alike.
