2015 Magna Carta 800th Anniversary Silver Proof Piedfort £2 Coin Limited to 2000
Following the issue by The Royal Mint of the only official United Kingdom coin to mark the 800th anniversary of the sealing of the Magna Carta, the organisation is to strike precious metal variants of the coin in the lead-up to Britain's commemoration of the event. In Brand New, uncirculated condition, in coin capsule with full presentation box from The Royal Mint. This is the silver-proof Piedfort edition with a limited creation of 2000 coins. The Royal Mint's Director of Commemorative Coin and Medals, Shane Bissett, said: The Royal Mint has been making currency for the kings and queens of this country for over 1,000 years, and has a long tradition of marking significant moments in history on the nation's coins. It is therefore apt that The Royal Mint is marking this significant occasion with the creation of the Magna Carta coin.
The coin design, by experienced coinage artist John Bergdahl, carries the fifth portrait of Her Majesty The Queen on its obverse. The coins are to be struck in limited Gold Proof (400 coins), Silver Proof (3,000 coins) and Silver Proof Piedfort (2,000 coins) editions.
The public can expect to see the circulating version of the design later this year. This item is in the category "Coins\Coins\British\Proof Sets/Coins\2000s". The seller is "kwertydirect" and is located in this country: GB. This item can be shipped to United Kingdom.
