JUST 500 available – UK 2020 Wordsworth £5 DateStamp Issue

William Wordsworth is one of Britain’s most renowned poets, and significantly, this year marks the 250th anniversary of his birth.

To celebrate his life and legacy, The Royal Mint has announced the issue of the official UK William Wordsworth £5 Coin.

The new coin has been struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, and features a design by David Lawrence that features lines from one of Wordsworth’s celebrated poems – Tintern Abbey – and takes inspiration from the landscape that inspired Wordsworth himself, the Lake District.

LIMITED AVAILABILITY: Just 500 available worldwide

Out of thousands of Brilliant Uncirculated William Wordsworth £5 coins just 500 have been kept aside for a very special William Wordsworth DateStamp™ issue, meaning only a select number of collectors can own it.

This provides you with an extremely limited way to own this new £5 coin. Your coin will be officially postmarked by Royal Mail with the date 7th April 2020 – the exact day 250 years ago that Wordsworth was born.

What’s more, each coin comes protectively sealed in a tamper-proof numismatic capsule with its own unique serial number so you can even register it online to receive your official DateStamp™ registration certificate.

Sell-out likely

Remember, because of the special one-day-only postmark, just 500 of these issues will ever be made available. So it will come as no surprise that DateStamp™ issues have some of the fastest sell-out rates around – that’s why you’ll need to act now to secure yours.

Remember, JUST 500 collectors can be the proud owners of this extremely limited issue. Make sure you’re one of them.

Don’t miss out, order yours today.
