Hello everyone. I hope the week has been good to you. I had an amazing bank holiday weekend; I attended a wedding on Saturday; a very good friend of mine got hooked to her childhood sweetheart and it was a lovely ceremony. We had an amazing time, there was a lot to eat and drink, the music was good, the crowd was in a dancing mood and the decor was heavenly. Not to forget her very beautiful ivory wedding dress. I am so happy for the new couple and I wish them many happy years together.
I didn’t get to take any pictures of my outfit because we were running late and it was raining cats and dogs all through the day, hello Autumn. Thankfully we had the wedding in a lovely hall in Essex so the rain didn’t spoil the day too much. I wore a lovely Debut black and white floral dress, the indoor pictures I took don’t do it justice so I will be taking some new pictures at some point purely to show it off on here, so watch this space.
On the bright side, I did receive this Britannia 2015 Uncirculated £2 coin from The Royal Mint, and this gift and the wedding party were the highlights of my bank holiday weekend.
This modern-day, classic, solid £2 coin is one full ounce of 999 fine silver, carrying Philip Nathan’s signature and it comes in an elegant, beautiful pack. It weighs 31.21 grams and it is such a rare gem. For those who don’t know, a silver token symbolises good luck so they are great gifts to give a friend or family member getting married – coins have long played a traditional role in wedding ceremonies, to mark the arrival of a new baby or to keep for yourself to treasure.
This was my wedding gift to the new couple. I love the design of the coin, and the fact that it is quite rare, only 9,999 other £2 coins around so they may be sitting on a small fortune in a couple of years time, who knows right?
If you like, you can grab this at a very affordable price of £57.50, it is currently still in stock and it is usually shipped within 3 working days.
What do you think? Do you have a similar coin? Sound off in the comment section.
Have a crazy Friday, thanks for reading.
