The first week of the New Year brings with it the unveiling of the Royal Mint’s circulating currency specials and from there, the inevitable selection of proof silver and gold coins that we all know and love. All the coins below will be available individually as the year progresses, but at present, the only way to get one of them is to buy them all in one of the mints full sets, just like last year.
A very British selection, we get celebrations of the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Queen Victoria, Wedgwood pottery, Samuel Pepys, and D-Day. As well as the usual gold and silver coins, each of these is also available in base-metal form in either a brilliant uncirculated or proof finish.
The currently available sets come in several forms. The five commemorative coins are available in silver (not up yet), silver piedfort (£550) and gold(£5,250). A bigger set of thirteen silver coins includes these five, along with the seven circulating currency designs and Antony Dufort’s gorgeous Britannia, and will cost £610. Available to order now, if you want to buy, please click the link and we’ll get a small tip at no cost to you.
