Queen Elizabeth II acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952 and celebrated her Coronation on 2nd June 1953 at Westminster Abbey.
During her remarkable 70-year reign, Queen Elizabeth II enjoyed seven jubilees and was the first British monarch to receive a Platinum Jubilee.
And as we approach one year since her sad passing, just a handful of collectors will be able to preserve these remarkable milestones with four Silver coins…
Housed in one complete collection, you can secure the sought-after Silver Proof £5 coins issued by The Royal Mint to celebrate Elizabeth II’s Silver, Golden, Diamond, and Platinum Jubilees.
And considering how sought-after her commemoratives have become, here’s why you don’t want to miss out…

So today you can get ahead of the crowd and take a shortcut to securing four Silver Proof coins from her most significant Jubilees.
The release of Silver Crowns is renowned as the traditional way to celebrate historic royal occasions, and each one features a unique commemorative portrait of Elizabeth II either on horseback or a classic depiction of the young monarch.
But, 3/4 of these coins are no longer available to buy from The Mint, so this could be your last chance…

But considering Queen Elizabeth II collectables are scarcer than ever, this is the easiest way to secure the most sought-after Jubilee coins in with just a few clicks of a button!
However, only a tiny number of collections are available, so make sure you don’t miss out on securing such a rare set…
The first UK Star WarsTM coin collection has been released today to celebrate 40 years since the release of Return of the Jedi in 1983.
The Star Wars franchise is a worldwide phenomenon, and despite being the brainchild of American movie maker, George Lucas, the Star Wars franchise has many links to British Heritage and the United Kingdom.
The coins have been specially produced in partnership with The Royal Mint, Walt Disney Company and Lucasfilm to create something extremely special for Star Wars’ fans and coin collectors alike.
The first design features none other than R2-D2TM and C-3POTM, with both characters inside the Millennium Falcon, the famous starship that has played a role in some of the greatest victories of the Rebel Alliance and the New Republic.
R2-D2TM and C-3POTM are the first to feature on the four-coin collection, with the other coins in the series also including other iconic duos including, Darth VaderTM and Emperor PalpetineTM, Luke SkywalkerTM and Princess LeiaTM, and Han SoloTM and ChewbaccaTM all with stunning designs that capture the true essence of the films.
Each coin is available in superior Brilliant Uncirculated Quality, or strictly limited Silver Proof Quality.
But it is the Silver coin that is especially unique, featuring the addition of vivid colour. This is a process that allows George Lucas’ iconic duos to be faithfully reproduced as accurately as possible.
What’s more, the silver coin has been limited to just 12,500 worldwide. When you consider the number of coin collectors who will want this 50p coin, alongside the number of Star Wars fans that will too, demand will likely exceed availability.
Finally, each of the coins in the series also has an intricate detail you may have missed – a lenticular feature. When the coin is tilted, two intricate symbols are revealed for Tatooine and the Rebel Alliance Starbird. Not only does this enhance the design, but it is also a favourite amongst coin collectors.
Whether you choose the Brilliant Uncirculated coins, or the Silver Proof version, rest assured all coins have been beautifully packaged as the perfect piece of memorabilia.
By opting into the Westminster Collection Star Wars Priority Lists, you can automatically receive the next coins in the series without the hassle!
2023 marks 75 years of the Windrush Generation.
And to celebrate, The Royal Mint have released a BRAND-NEW UK coin range!
But what is the Windrush Generation? Carry on reading to learn more and find out how you can commemorate this historic occasion…
The term ‘Windrush Generation’ is coined from the arrival of individuals onboard the HMT Empire Windrush ship, travelling from the Caribbean to the UK between 1948 and 1973.
After UK migration laws changed in 1948, the HMT Empire Windrush docked in England for the first time whilst carrying over 1,000 Caribbean passengers.
The aim was to help reduce British labour shortages and to prevent an economic collapse post-Second World War, with the individuals who travelled to the UK becoming known as the Windrush Generation.
The movement was successful in rebuilding the nation after WWII, and their contributions to the UK have helped to shape modern British society and culture to this day.
In fact, the voyage became a symbol of the mass-migration movement altogether, and in 2023, we celebrate 75 years since the Windrush ship first docked in England.
The Windrush 50p
To celebrate the 75th anniversary, The Royal Mint have released a brand-new 50p coin in a range of specifications.
From the collector’s favourite – Brilliant Uncirculated – to the stunning 92.50% Silver Proof and double thickness Silver Piedfort in vivid colour, there is something for everyone.
In fact, this is the perfect opportunity to preserve such a key period of British history for generations to come.
