NewMSmatist15 posted a topic in SilverHas anyone on the forum picked one of these up or seen them floating around on eBay or other websites? They are sold out at Modern Coin Mart, see the link below. I completely missed it! It seems the Royal Mint are continuing with a tradition started in 2015 of having multiple Britannias available per year. This is the 3rd type as far as I can tell. For 2018 there are the textured background silver Britannia coins known as the "radial sunburst" coins and designated as such on NGC labels, the Oriental Border coins, and now this plain fields coin which is simply listed as a DPL on the NGC label. Limited mintage as far as I know and they are still available raw from the Royal Mint last I checked. Let me know your thoughts! https://www.moderncoinmart.com/2018-great-britain-1-oz-silver-britannia-2-coin-scarce-and-unique-coin-division-ngc-ms70-dpl-fdi.html
Does anyone collect the non-precious metal 2 pound coins in the UK? If so, do you use a coin book? The annual or definitive sets released by the Royal Mint? Graded and slabbed versions? I've got a few now - the 2015 reintroduction of the Britannia portrait both in circulated condition and from the definitive coin set slabbed, the WWI aviation definitive coin set slabbed, and am very excited for the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's Modern Prometheus (Frankenstein!) coin this year. I love the Kew Gardens 50 pence and the Sir Isaac Newton of the same denomination, but only have the latter slabbed by NGC. Photos below are mine and of my coins.
Fellows, I am just starting to collect coins. Would anyone recommend this set by our friends over at Royal Mint or do you deem the price too steep for the little extra cross that's engraved onto the "old" pound coin? 55 quid are a lot of money for two 1 pound coins. ;-) Thank you! http://www.royalmint.com/shop/U/UK16D2BU I have no specific collection theme yet. Thanks, Aaron
