As we had previously anticipated, we now are able to reveal that the second ever United Kingdom 5oz silver coin, minted for the Diamond Jubilee, has now sold out at The Royal Mint after having only been on sale for a matter of months.
Just the second ever UK coin struck to these specifications, this 999/1000 fine silver proof coin was struck in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee in 2012 and quickly grabbed the attention of collectors worldwide with its stunning design that is unique to the coin and a low edition limit of only 1,952.
This tiny mintage is over 70% smaller than that of the first 5oz UK silver coin, struck for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
A number of significant Diamond Jubilee issues from prestigious mints all over the world have sold out since the start of the official celebrations at the beginning of June, but this UK 5oz sell-out can perhaps be considered the most prestigious amongst them.
Nevertheless, as we had previously anticipated that this Royal Mint issue would be so popular with collectors and likely result in a rapid sell-out, we have managed to secure some of the final number of these in demand coins exclusively for our clients.
