What happened when The Royal Mint launched the official Coronation coins?
Today, we witnessed the monumental launch of the official UK Coronation coin range.
And as you would imagine, the coins released for the biggest royal event in decades have generated insatiable demand. The Royal Mint have already SOLD-OUT THIRTEEN of their specifications.
Featuring a 50p, £5 and an Ounce range, these FIRST Coronation coins were made available in BU, Silver Proof, Silver Piedfort, and the most prestigious quality – Gold Proof.
OVER 60,000 Collectors Waited…
The story began at 9am, when we were greeted by a queue of over 60,000 on The Royal Mint’s website.
And since then, we have seen almost immediate SELL-OUTS…
Sell-Out After Sell-Out
The growing queue soon resulted in the 16-MINUTE SELL-OUT of the Struck on the Day Sovereign, going off-sale from the Mint at 9:16am.
The sell-out of the 1/40th oz Gold coin came next, selling out an impressive entire edition limit of 2,023 in just over twenty minutes!
The prestigious 1oz and ¼ oz Gold Proof Coronation coins soon followed suit and sold-out too.
Next were all the coins in the Gold Ounce range to sell-out of their edition limits, which ranged from 500 to 2,023.
Then, the 5oz Silver with an edition limit of 1,500 was next to sell-out…
Even the large edition limit of 3,250 belonging to the Silver Piedfort 50p and Silver Piedfort £5 coins have BOTH SOLD-OUT!
But most impressively so far, BOTH the prestigious Gold Proof 50p and Gold Proof £5 specifications have sold-out of their 500 edition limits!
2023 Annual Sets SELLING OUT fast!
The 2023 Annual Set issued earlier this morning was rumoured to be the most sought-after commemorative annual set to date…
…and the rumours were true.
The coins are the very first 2023 dated coins to feature King Charles III’s portrait on the obverse and collectors have been racing to guarantee them for their collections.
Record breaking sell outs
Within just 16 minutes of release, the Silver Proof and Silver Piedfort specifications of the 2023 Annual Set were no longer available to order at The Royal Mint.
The Premium Proof and Proof 2023 Annual Sets were also in high demand, becoming unavailable to order at The Royal Mint in less than an hour of release.
A new era of UK coinage
The 2023 Annual Set includes two brand new 50p coins, two £2 coins and a new £5 coin.
Each of the coins in this highly sought-after set feature King Charles III’s portrait on the obverse. And importantly, this is the first time His Majesty‘s effigy is seen on a UK £2 coin.
The issue of the 2023 Annual Coin Set marks a new era of UK coinage. You can still secure the set in Brilliant Uncirculated quality here.
How you can own the new UK Piedfort Sovereign that thousands of collectors will miss out on…
Late last year the UK 2022 Proof Sovereign was released featuring a one-year-only design change to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.
10,500 were made available at 9am on launch day.
By 6pm that very same day they were gone.
That made it the fastest-selling sovereign ever.
But a new UK sovereign could break that record…
Just Released: The UK 2022 Piedfort Sovereign
The special Piedfort edition of the UK 2022 Proof Sovereign has just been released. With an edition limit of just 3,250 — less than one-third of the edition limit of its Proof Sovereign counterpart — thousands of collectors wanting to own both are set to miss out.
An extremely rare specification of Sovereign
This is only the third Piedfort Sovereign to be struck by The Royal Mint.
When the first Piedfort Sovereign was released in 2017 to mark the bicentenary of the modern sovereign, it too sold out in just 24 hours.
This new release has an edition limit of 500 less, so another fast sell-out looks guaranteed.
The pinnacle of Royal Mint craftsmanship
Piedfort coins are some of the finest examples of British craftsmanship and the Gold Proof Piedfort Sovereign is no exception. Each has been struck from 22-carat Gold, however, the Piedfort Sovereign has been struck using a double-thickness blank, meaning it contains twice the weight of Gold.
Considered extremely prestige pieces, Piedfort coins continue to be limited issues, and the striking of such coins is strictly reserved for the most important events. Therefore, it seems fitting for one to be issued in our Queen’s milestone Platinum Jubilee year.
Act quickly or risk missing out
With the UK 2022 Proof Sovereign and the very first UK Piedfort Sovereign both selling out within 24 hours, this latest release is practically guaranteed to follow suit. High demand is guaranteed.
Thousands of collectors will miss out. Make sure you’re not one of them.
