Why you missed out on the UK's last £50 coin and why 15,000 SOLD OUT

• 15,000 coins completely sold out

• The scarcest UK "face value" silver coin ever seen

• Struck from one ounce of fine silver

• Classic design adored by collectors

Why I recommend the Shakespeare UK £50 Fine Silver Coin…

These "face value" silver coins have become something of a collecting sensation, seeing many record-breaking sell outs.

First introduced with St George & the Dragon £20 Silver Coin, 250,000 pieces sold out. This new Shakespeare £50 coin, had an edition limit of just 15,000 - the lowest of any Royal Mint high face value silver pieces and an incredible 85% reduction in mintage from the last £50 Silver Coin, which was limited to 100,000 coins. Shakespeare Mintages ChartUnsurprisingly, it completely sold out, so you and thousands of collectors missed out. This is your second chance.
