Why I recommend the UK First World War Armistice £2 Silver Proof Coin...
This year marks the centenary of the First World War Armistice. To honour the occasion The Royal Mint has announced a brand new £2 coin. The edition limit has surprised me though.
It has been given an exceptionally strict edition limit of just 5,000 coins. That’s 2,500 less than the RAF £2 coins released earlier this year. In fact, I haven’t seen an edition limit this low on a UK Silver Proof £2 since last year for Jane Austen. With all due respect to Jane Austen, the two themes can’t possibly compare in terms of importance and appeal to collectors.
I think 5,000 coins will sell out very quickly, so please act now.
