A closer look at this unique Coronation issue – struck on the ACTUAL Coronation Day!
On Saturday, we spent the day with the crowds at the Mall seeing the Royal Family on the balcony and waving our Union Jacks alongside thousands of others!
Even in the rain, the atmosphere was amazing. Union Jacks everywhere, cheering crowds, and more bunting than we’ve ever seen in our lives. It was truly British Royal pageantry at its splendid best.
What an event it was – the first King our great country has crowned for 86 years.
We hope you enjoyed the Coronation, wherever you were watching and whatever you were doing.
But whilst we were enjoying the festivities, a small group of people were hard at work striking an exclusive set of Coronation Silver Proof Commemoratives.
In fact, this was happening just a stone’s throw from Westminster Abbey where the King was being crowned.
And this prestigious set is really remarkable.
Considering most of the country shut down to celebrate, it’s a unique piece of memorabilia which in turn is strictly limited and ever so collectable.
We’ve already seen multiple sell outs across the Coronation range, but you may still have an opportunity to add this set to your collection if you act now!
Here are the three key points that make this set so special:
1: It’s a set of three 1oz Silver Proof Commemoratives that feature the Official Royal Coat of Arms of His Majesty King Charles III and Her Majesty Queen Camilla, alongside a stunning dual portrait of the new monarchs.
2: Each medal was struck on the Official Coronation date – 6th May 2023 – meaning that the set will forever be linked to this important moment in history.
And most importantly…
3: Only 350 sets are available. 350 simply won’t be enough! Since the Coronation date was announced, demand for commemoratives has been sky-high and it shows no sign of slowing down.
You can secure your Coronation Silver Proof Commemoratives set completely risk free for just £32.50 here. And importantly, you won’t pay a thing until your set has been despatched to you. But if you don’t act now, we wouldn’t be surprised if they’re all completely allocated before the general release!
The most sought-after Winnie the Pooh 50p coins yet!
The final coin in the Winnie the Pooh 50p series has been issued today, marking an end to one of the biggest sell-out stories of recent years. Secure yours here in .925 Sterling Silver >>
And, considering the drastic edition limit cuts to the 2022 coins, THOUSANDS of collectors are set to miss out on completing their collection…
Celebrating 95 years of fun-filled adventure, these charming 50p coins each feature designs of the best-loved characters from A. A. Milne’s original stories, with original illustrations from E. H. Shepard.
When the first three coins were issued in 2020, they took the collecting world by storm. They were so popular that the very first Silver Proof 50p featuring Winnie the Pooh himself – SOLD-OUT in LESS THAN 24 HOURS!
Tigger 50p sells out
Collector demand continued into 2021 with the second series of Winnie the Pooh 50p coins.
Featuring some of Winnie the Pooh’s most trusted companions, these coins each had an edition limit of JUST 18,000 for their Silver Proof specification.
In fact, so popular were these coins that the Tigger 50p is no longer available at The Royal Mint.
As collectors anticipated the issue of the final three coins in the series in 2022, at The Westminster Collection, we were already expecting demand to outweigh supply.
JUST 6,000 ISSUED WORLDWIDE
That’s because JUST 6,000 of each of the Silver Proof 50p coins have been issued worldwide – one third of the edition limit of the sell-out 2020 and 2021 coins!
12,000 collectors missed out on the Eeyore Silver Proof 50p as it sold-out in a matter of hours at The Royal Mint.
Undoubtedly, this final 50p, which features a design of the most popular Winnie the Pooh characters, will be just as popular. Unfortunately, this means many will likely miss out on securing it for their collection.
How much is the Winnie the Pooh 50p worth?
The first and last issues in any coin series are hugely popular with collectors.
When a theme is as universally popular as Winnie the Pooh, there are no surprises collectors rushed to get their hands on the UK’s first Winnie the Pooh 50p.
Much like first editions of best-selling books, or the first run of banknotes, UK-first coin issues can sell for well over their retail price on secondary market sites.
And, with edition limits as low as this, we knew the sell-out potential for this coin was high, and collectors knew it too.
Don’t miss out on the Winnie the Pooh and Friends 50p!
If you want to be one of JUST 6,000 lucky collectors to own this BRAND-NEW coin in .925 Sterling Silver, you’ll need to act extremely fast.
