Birthdays, anniversaries, christenings, coming of age….whatever the occasion, a solid silver £1 coin has a wow factor that everyone appreciates. This sparkling coin is our most popular gift, always enthusiastically received and cherished forever.
Arguably known as ‘The Nation’s Coin’ the £1 holds a special place in people’s hearts. This is the only way to own a sterling silver Brilliant Uncirculated £1 dated 2013, adding extra interest and appeal to this unique and precious gift.
Sterling silver has been prized for thousands of years for its soft gleam and gentle beauty, and in ancient times was believed to have magical properties. It was said that a baby whose palm is crossed with silver will attract riches in later life. Coins are also a traditional wedding gift to wish prosperity on the happy couple – a sentiment still much appreciated by newlyweds.
As the UK’s definitive £1, this is a familiar and well-loved coin. It features the heraldic shield of the Royal Arms, while the obverse shows the acclaimed portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS which has been used on all legal tender since 1998.
Beautifully presented in a display case, the pound is struck to Brilliant Uncirculated quality, for a sparkling finish. It comes with a booklet of information on the history of giving coins as gifts, as well as the heritage, history and craftsmanship of The Royal Mint and space for your own personal message. A symbolic and valuable keepsake, this is a touching reminder of a special year.
