MINT INVESTMENTS NEW COINS UNVEILED
The Royal Mint has unveiled four commemorative coins to be launched this year. Based on previous issues, they could be attractive investments.
Three coins mark centenaries: a £2 coin for the First World War Armistice, a £2 coin for the formation of the Royal Air Force, and a 50p to mark 100 years since women got the right to vote. The fourth, a £2 coin, marks 200 years since the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
The coins will be released through the year, and can be bought from the Royal Mint website. Prices vary depending on metal quality, but are higher than face value.
Limited edition coins such as these can become collectors’ items, rising in price considerably.
