Today is the 70th Anniversary of VE Day. It is a very special day, but yet the Royal Mint decided against issuing a UK coin to mark the occasion.
However, the Government of Guernsey is marking the occasion with a £5 Silver Proof Coin.
Good news for those collectors who wish to own a 70th Anniversary coin, but the edition limit has been set at just 2,015 coins – the sort of edition I would have expected if there was a UK coin too.
Without a UK coin and the interest this coin is going to generate, it’s probably not enough.
