The Royal Wedding £5 Silver Piedfort

With just over a week to go until the day of the Royal Wedding, a surge in demand is in evidence for Royal Wedding coin issues. 

The Royal Mint has today announced that it has officially sold out of its 2011 UK £5 Royal Wedding Silver Piedfort Coin and is nearing a sell out of the Gold-Plated Silver £5 coin issue. 

With a mintage of just 3,000 and struck in Sterling Silver, it is perhaps unsurprising that the Piedfort issue proved to be so popular. 

However, this high demand is likely to extend to remaining Royal Wedding issues – we reported previously the full allocation of the 5oz Gold coin issued by Jersey – suggesting that it may be wise for numismatists to seek news of sell-outs or limited availability for Royal Wedding issues.
