These coins are pre-owned which means they fall under the special scheme, which means you save money on VAT
It is a VAT scheme or treatment, which is aimed at avoiding consumers being charged VAT twice on the full price of second-hand goods which is what used to happen when VAT was first introduced in the UK.
The scheme applies to almost all second-hand goods, including most coins, medallions, and bars. However, it specifically excludes “investment gold coins and bars” as these are exempt from VAT in the UK.
You can read more on our special scheme page.
The original Victoria gothic crown was issued in 1847 and 1853 (solely as a proof edition). Designed by William Wyon, the obverse featured a crowned bust of Queen Victoria on the obverse with the quartered shields on the reverse.
The Royal Mint have confirmed they will issue both designs, making this a 2-coin issue.
The obverse of the coin features Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II with the inscription:
2021 • ELIZABETH II • D • G • REG • F • D • 5 POUNDS
The reverse of the coin features William Wyon's quartered shield design. The crowned cruciform shields bear three lions passant for England, a rampant lion for Scotland, and a harp for Ireland. The angles feature the floral emblems; roses, a shamrock and a thistle. In the centre appears the Order of the Garter, bearing the inscription:
|Weight / Size
|Silver Weight Troy Ounces
|Fineness / Carat
|Elizabeth II (1952-2022)
|Mint / Brand
|The Royal Mint
