**SOLD OUT at the Mint**
On 4th May Buckingham Palace announced that HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, after 70 years at Her Majesty’s side, would be retiring from public duty.
To mark this record-breaking achievement and celebrate his 70 years of service to Her Majesty the Queen and the United Kingdom, The Royal Mint has issued a limited edition Silver Proof £5 coin in tribute to Prince Philip.
The release of UK £5 coins are reserved for only the most significant British events and anniversaries and have become firmly established as the most sought-after silver coin among knowledgeable collectors.
However, of special note for this issue is its very low edition limit.
It has been set at just 3,000 worldwide, a tiny amount when you consider the global popularity of UK £5 Silver Proof coins and their sell out history.
The equivalent Queen's Sapphire Jubilee £5 released earlier this year with an edition limit of 8,000 – 5,000 more - SOLD OUT at the Mint in less than a week.
So if you want to secure one you must act quickly.
We have limited stock available on a first-come, first-served basis and you can pre-order now for the official Royal Mint issue price of £82.50 (+p&p). We’ll send your coin to you as soon as it’s available from the Mint, just click ‘Add to basket’ now.
