2014 Great Britain Silver Britannia Proof First Struck NGC PF70 - 5 Pieces
Buckingham Palace Bombshell:
The Queen’s scarce new silver proofs snatched by savvy Americans!
Even some of our most diehard collectors of American coins make room in their collections for British proof coins. And it’s easy to understand why. While the oldest U.S. coin designs span a century or two, the most venerable British coin designs trace their roots back over a thousand years or more! In fact, one of Britain’s most symbolic figures, Britannia, first appeared on a coin in 119 AD!
But even if you’re not a history buff, you’re certain to sit up and take notice when you discover that a brand new British Silver Proof Set was just issued with one of the most shockingly scarce edition limits we’ve ever seen. The only real mystery is how we managed to sneak every single set out of Great Britain! And that story really has two major secrets: purity and scarcity!
PURITY: Britain’s Purest Silver Proofs!
The goddess Britannia has been the star of the hugely-popular Britannia Silver Proof series struck by Britain’s Royal Mint every year since 1997. But until last year, every Silver Britannia issued in this series was struck from 95.8% pure silver (a silver standard first introduced in Britain over 300 years ago).
We are thrilled to announce that the 2014 Five-Piece Britannia Silver Proof Set is only the second ever to be struck in 99.9% pure silver—making them among the purest Silver Britannia Proofs ever issued!
As official British legal tender, every aspect of the Britannia Silver Proof must first be approved the Queen herself before they can be struck. In a tradition that dates back centuries, the weight, purity, diameter, and design are all reviewed and approved by the reigning monarch. So when collectors call the Britannia Silver Proofs the Queen’s Silver, they’re exactly right!
SCARCITY: Only 550 in the world!
Because of its popularity and purity, one could easily expect that tens of thousands of Britannia Proof Sets could be issued in order to meet collector demand. Past U.S. Silver Proof Sets have been issued in mintages ranging from nearly 775,000 (for the 2008-S U.S. Silver Proof Set) to 420,000 (for the 2013 U.S. Silver Proof Set).
But The Royal Mint chooses to keep their Silver Britannia coin mintages extremely limited. When we met with mint representatives recently, we were shocked to learn that the mintages for each coin within the 2014 Britannia Five-Piece Silver Proof Set were strictly limited to a mere few thousand for the entire world!
The One Ounce Silver Proof has the largest mintage (5,300 total), while the smaller coins within this set are limited to only 2,300 to 3,300 each. But we learned another secret that was even more shocking! Out of the already miniscule mintages, The Royal Mint was reserving the first coins struck in each size for a special "First Struck" Five-Piece Britannia Silver Proof Set – limited to only 550 for the entire world!
We immediately used our position as an official distributor to secure the entire "First Struck" edition exclusively for our U.S. collectors.
Our quick action means two things:
#1: Thousands of British collectors are going to be frustrated that the "Yanks" beat them to the punch on their own country’s silver proof set, and…
#2: Even after securing all 550 Five-Piece Britannia Silver Proof Sets, less than 11 people per state can ever own this scarce, historic British Silver Proof Set!
The ONLY Way to Secure Five Britannia Proofs
The five 2014 Britannia Silver Proofs in this set range in size from One Troy Ounce, One-Half Ounce, One-Quarter Ounce, One-Tenth Ounce, and One-Twentieth Ounce. But savvy collectors know that the Half-Ounce and Quarter-Ounce proofs can only be found within extremely limited silver proof sets like this.
They cannot be purchased individually. Securing your 2014 Britannia Silver Proof Set gives you an instant collection of these five 2014 Britannia Silver Proofs—the purest Silver Britannia Proofs in history!
Each 2014 Britannia Silver Proof within your set features a new, one-year-only design of Britannia. The design, created by artist Jody Clark, features one of the most artistic Britannia depictions ever struck.
The design perfectly balances the motionless symbols of the globe, the shield, and trident with the dynamic sense of movement created by her flowing hair, her windswept robes, and the tail and mane of the British Lion which lies on guard at her feet. The British Lion is an iconic symbol of British pride and strength. Although the lion is at Britannia’s feet, its tail is actually curved around her: tame and protective at the same time.
The design of the Britannia Silver Proof changes each year starting with last year’s coin, which has created an exciting new series for silver proof collectors worldwide.
Nearly Two Ounces of 99.9% Pure Silver
This truly historic British Silver Proof Set contains five stunning silver proofs – struck in a total of 61.6 grams of 99.9% pure silver. That’s nearly TWO OUNCES of silver in one spectacular official British proof set!
Certified "First Struck" – and Graded Flawless and Near-Perfect!
Each and every proof within this exclusive Five-Piece Silver Proof Set has been certified by both The Royal Mint and Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) to be one of first 550 Struck – an elite pedigree printed right on the NGC label!
They’ve been protected forever in archival NGC acrylic holders; the set comes in a handsome presentation case, accompanied by the official Royal Mint serial numbered certificate of authenticity.
When you consider that you are securing a 2014 Five-Piece Britannia Silver Proof Set which is limited to only the first 550 coins struck in the entire world – and each is certified and graded – surely, at least one of them belongs in your collection. Don’t delay! Order yours ASAP to claim your bragging rights today!
