UK Decimal coins / Re: UK Commemorative coins for 2019
« Last post by Figleaf on October 16, 2019, 06:29:30 PM »
I think it would be interesting to have a forum topic dedicated to to similar UK “exclusive” coins, i.e. not  freely available from the Royal Mint online store.

What immediately comes to my mind are several 0.25oz Britannia coins - Peter Rabbit, Churchill, RAF and 1oz 999 silver - Waterloo, Shakespeare; Platinum 1oz. Start of WW1.

Go ahead and do it, Big_M. You don't need anyone's permission.

The 2019-dated Lion of England 5 pounds coin was not the only coin issued for the UK winning the Cricket World Cup. The Royal Mint also issued around 250 Cricket 10p coins in gold proof for the occasion. These coins were only sold to specific clients that received an invitation from the mint to buy the coin. The Cricket 10p is the only Alphabet 10p that was released in gold.

Your photo is a bit small, but looks like a nice representative specimen of the type !
I have several of these, from good silver to almost copper. This includes some specimen with modern resilvering done by less scrupulous sellers.

Recently added. Left side image from catalogue and right side actual coin image. Coin was slightly cleaned by seller as evident from photograph but was ok in hand as copper colour is slightly coming back.
