London 2012 Countdown Coin sell-outs Announced

01 Apr 2010

The Royal Mint is thrilled to announce the sell-out of both its 2009 Piedfort and Silver 2012 Olympic Countdown Coins. The Royal Mint has experienced overwhelming demand for its 2012 Olympic & Paralympic range – which at this stage of the countdown makes it the best-selling Olympic coin programme in history.

All 6,000 of the 2009 Piedfort Countdown coins have sold out - taking the title of biggest selling Piedfort coin in the Royal Mint’s 1,100 year history. Combined with the sell-out of the 30,000 Silver Countdown coins, this represents a notable achievement for the Royal Mint and demonstrates the wide appeal the Countdown coins hold.

Sales of the gold Proof Countdown coins are progressing well, with only a small number remaining for national and international collectors keen to own this historic and unique collection. With the sell-out of the Piedfort and Silver coins, the demand to own the last of the three coins in the 2009 collection is evermore present and the Royal Mint advises that those hoping to own this piece of history should move quickly to avoid disappointment.

This announcement follows last year’s sell-out of the 2008 Beijing – London Handover coin in all three precious metals (Gold, Silver and Piedfort). The two sell-outs are testament to the international demand and enthusiasm to commemorate the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Dave Knight, Director of Commemorative Coins, commented: “We are extremely pleased with the way the Countdown Coin range has been embraced by collectors around the world. Demand has been strong with each introduction and this is sure to increase as we get closer to London 2012. There is great excitement around the return of the Olympic Games to London and the Royal Mint is honoured to be able to offer people the chance to commemorate this historical event with our coin programme – truly exceptional keepsakes to last a lifetime."

March saw the release of the new 2010 Countdown range and initial demand has been strong, indicating that the new coins are destined to be every bit as successful as their predecessors.
