2013 Silver Britannia Lunar Snake Series 1 Oz .999 No Reserve For Sale
The Royal Mint's Lunar Year of the Snake Coin
The 2013 Silver Britannia contains the highest silver content of any British coin in history - 999/1000 purity. This coin was produced in a strictly limited edition and only 350,000 were released for sale to the general public. Its workmanship is assured by a mint that has traditionally set standards for over one thousand years and its investment value is unquestionable. This is the first British coin in living memory to feature a rim-struck image. There will not be another edition of this coin - ever. There couldn't be even it were planned - there can only be one first.
Condition of This Specific Coin
You are offerding on the exact coin pictured above, the second of twenty from The British Royal Mint, taken from the sealed mint tube #1YVO17716 (the security seal provided by the Royal Mint). This specific coin is #BLS1307 (my ID number for this coin). As such, it shows no flaws to the naked eye. As to its technical grade; I'm not a qualified judge. I imagine it to be of perfect proof quality - but I can't say this with authority - I don't work for PCGS or NGC and cannot guarantee that I'm right about this. I ask that you please decide for yourself and offer accordingly. That is - offer with confidence that what you see is what you get.
As To The Images
Color may vary from the photo due to reflection on the coin's surface. Most people think my coins look better than their pictures on - my camera highlights flaws that I would never notice (and that sometimes don't even exist).
Remember that I back everything I sell. As always, returns are accepted within 14 days of the transaction, with full purchase price refunded. You don't even need to say why. But please bear in mind that if you feel you must return it, you pay the return postage. (In cases where I have made some egregious error, I will pay the return postage, too.)
This is an unprecedented event in the history of the Royal Mint and I have prepared the best presentation I could for it. It comes in the only direct fit capsule available world wide (the Royal Mint itself does not offer this). All available Air-tite varieties come in 38mm or 39mm. This coin is 38.6mm. The down side is that it does not display the exclusive snake privy on the rim. Unlike my previous offerings, the coin is surrounded by a black collar inside the slab (the others were dark green). The advantage to this system is that is protects this important coin completely and shows it beautifully. Please understand that, although this is essentially the same slab used by NGC and PCGS, it is not permanently sealed - but, of course; this also means that you can open it and feast your eyes on the history making rim.
The label fixed to the holder for this coin does not come from the Royal Mint and does not imply their participation or sanction. Since I designed and produced it, offer it at no cost, and ship it at no cost, and included it only for illustrative purposes, I have broken no laws regarding trademark - nor will you as the owner. This is not to mention that I put the work into this as a courtesy to you. I will not guarantee that I won't make slight changes to the label design before I ship it - I make no apologies for my obsessive nature.
