Hot on the heels of our recent article revealing that The Royal Mint’s UK Diamond Jubilee 5oz Silver Coin had sold out, we can now reveal that the 2012 UK Diamond Jubilee £5 Gold-Plated Silver Coin has also completely sold out at The Royal Mint.
Alongside the UK 5oz Silver coin, this sell-out has joined a long and growing list of significant Diamond Jubilee coins from mints all over the world that have sold out in 2012.
The 2012 UK Diamond Jubilee £5 Gold-Plated Silver Coin features a unique double portrait of the Queen design and has been plated in 22 carat gold. Following the sell-out Royal Wedding coin of 2011, it is only the second United Kingdom coin to be issued to these specifications and the edition limit of only 12,500 is significantly six times smaller than that of the silver proof version of this coin.
As was also the case with the UK 5oz Silver Diamond Jubilee coin, we had previously foreseen that this Royal Mint gold-plated silver issue would prove to be exceptionally popular with collectors and almost certainly sell out within the year. Therefore, we were careful to secure a number of these prestigious coins before The Royal Mint announced that they had sold out. Click here if you would like to obtain one of these historic coins.
