The Most Valuable British Rare Coins
British rare coins are increasingly valuable as numismatic societies and collectors become more and more common and popular in the country. In the last year the record was set for the most valuable British coin ever: a King Edward VIII Sovereign was sold for £516,000! This isn’t the only coin of high value to be seen recently, however.
As far as rare coins UK go, you could do worse than to find yourself in possession of one of the following coins. Beautiful and valuable, they’re likely to make any collector beam. Firstly, there is the 1874 Queen Victoria London Shield Sovereign. One of the rarest coins around from the reign of Queen Victoria, only 520,713 were issued in their day and in the sale room, they can command a price of around £5,000. Also, keep one eye open for a 1911 George V Proof Gold Five Pound coin. These coins are incredibly scarce, and definitely investment grade as they were made from 22 carat gold to commemorate the King’s coronation. When you buy rare coins (or collect them) as a matter of course, the search for the perfect addition to your collection never ends. Finding an 1817 George II Laurette Head Gold Sovereign probably won’t change that, but it will be a remarkable moment. This coin is considered one of the first examples of a modern sovereign, and weighs in at 7.98 grams of 22 carat gold. Coins like these don’t come along every day, of course, but numismatics know that the search is half the joy.
