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.
