As I’m sure you already know, this year Her Majesty marks her 95th Birthday. This is an incredible milestone and an important moment in British history that has been rightfully remembered on some fantastic commemoratives.
But there’s one particular issue that, for me, stands heads and shoulders above the rest…
Introducing the Diamond Masterpiece
The name ‘Masterpiece’ really is appropriate for this coin, and I would almost say that it hardly does justice to this incredible release which is the pinnacle of craftsmanship. Cutting edge minting techniques and materials have been used to create this special commemorative.
Containing NINETY FIVE Actual Diamonds – one for each year of Her Majesty’s life
The coin itself has been struck to an incredible 65mm from FIVE OUNCES of .999 PURE SILVER. The coin is fully approved by Buckingham Palace and the Queen and is the perfect heirloom for you and your family to commemorate the occasion.
And around the outside of the designs are 95 diamonds representing the years of Her Majesty’s life. This is an incredible feature and a real feat of numismatic innovation.
As I am sure you can appreciate, given all of the individual elements that have to be carefully curated for each individual coin, the edition limit as a consequence is incredibly low. In fact, only 195 of these coins have been produced.
JUST 195 AVAILABLE – secure yours while you can!
The Queen’s 95th Birthday Diamond Masterpiece Coin is available to own right now from The Westminster Collection, although these numismatic masterpieces are expected to sell out quickly.
Can you believe that Lewis Carroll’s famous fantasy children’s book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass have been entertaining audiences across the globe for more than 150 years?
Now, The Royal Mint has just released TWO BRAND NEW UK coins celebrating Alice and the inhabitants of Wonderland!
We invite you to join us for a very important tea party to take a look at these exciting new coins that are the perfect addition to any growing coin collection…
Two NEW UK Coins
The first coin features Alice alongside the cheeky Cheshire Cat perched in a tree. Alice fans will remember this iconic scene from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland when she first meets him outside the Duchess’s house.
The Cheshire Cat is known for constantly grinning, and disappearing and reappearing whenever it fancies, sometimes just leaving behind its toothy grin. It is the only character in the book to listen to Alice and teaches her the bizarre rules of Wonderland.
The second coin celebrates the sequel Through the Looking-Glass. In this charming coin design we see Alice depicted with the mischievous twins Tweedledum and Tweedledee.
In the book the twins are dressed as schoolboys and don’t hesitate to fight with one another over silly things. They show Alice the sleeping Red King and tell her about the Walrus and the Carpenter.
These two coins are available in a range of specifications – the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland coin is available to own now, and you have the chance to get ahead of the crowd and PRE-ORDER the Through the Looking-Glass coin too, to complete your UK Alice collection…

High demand expected
Lewis Carroll’s nonsense fairytale about a girl called Alice is undeniably one of the best-known and most popular works of English-language fiction. Its popularity is clear when you consider it’s been adapted into theatre and ballet shows, not to mention several blockbuster Disney films.
Alice collectables are in high-demand – a ‘legendary’ 1865 first edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (one of only 22 known to be in existence) went under the hammer in 2016 for £1.3-£2 million. This confirms that these NEW UK COINS will be highly sought-after.
If you’re interested…
To mark the life and achievements of the late Duke of Edinburgh, HRH Prince Philip, The Royal Mint has just released a brand new UK £5 coin.
Not only does it feature a never before seen portrait of Prince Philip but, significantly, the Duke of Edinburgh himself played a key role in the design of this coin and even approved the portrait!
