• Limited edition Silver Proof £5 issued to mark the 50th anniversary of Concorde’s first supersonic flight
• Authorised with a strict edition limit of just 2,019 coins
• That’s less than half the edition of the latest UK Silver Proof £5 from The Royal Mint
• Struck from over 28g of Sterling Silver to a flawless Proof finish
Why I recommend The 50th Anniversary of Concorde Silver Proof £5 Coin…
Concorde 001 made its first flight on 2 March 1969. 7 months later, it went supersonic – flying faster than the speed of sound. The official coins issued to mark the 50th anniversary of this remarkable achievement have just been announced and this scarce silver proof £5 stands out.
That’s because it has been given an edition limit of just 2,019 coins. To put that into perspective, when The Royal Mint issues a silver proof £5, it’s unheard of for the edition limit to be less than 3,500. At almost 1,500 less, I predict a very fast sell-out.
And the design doesn’t disappoint. You can see the iconic Concorde engraved in mid-flight as it breaks through the sound barrier.
