Win a Selection of Collectible Coins
Here is your chance to win a selection of collectible coins worth £250. This is the perfect way to start a new coin collection or for any budding numismatist wanting to add to their collection.
The Post Office Shop has a great range of collectible Coins worthy of any collection. Whether you are looking for Brilliant Uncirculated or Silver Proof coins, a variety of events from British history and royal anniversaries are remembered.
Known as “The Hobby of Kings”, coin collecting often starts in childhood. Many of us will have been given the gift of a coin to mark the year of our birth, for example.
As you start to develop a collection, it is worth concentrating on a particular theme, such as Royalty or History. In addition, you may want to collect coins in a particular precious metal or currency.
Her Majesty the Queen, now the World’s Longest Reigning Monarch is an ideal subject. You can develop a wide collection of coins from her reign, including the recent The Queens Beasts collection. There is also the House of Windsor Silver Proof £5 coin which is subject of another competition we are currently running on this blog.
