|The Very Highest Quality Coins...|
|Year 2009 Coins|
Lord Davies of Oldham: My right honourable friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer (Alistair Darling) has made the following Written Statement-
Her Majesty the Queen has been graciously pleased to approve my recommendation that the following coins should be issued in 2009:
a crown piece to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the accession of Henry VIII;a two pound coin to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of publication of The Origin of Species;a two pound coin to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns; and a 50 pence piece to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the foundation of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew.
Collector versions of these coins will be released at a premium above face value and, during 2009, the coins will also become available at face value from banks and post offices.
The First Coins of 2009!
The very first coins of 2009 should be the Lunar Calendar Silver Series, produced by the Perth Mint in Western Australia. To enable them to synchronise the gold and silver bullion series, not only will the 2009 "Year of the Ox" coins be issued earlier than usual, but also the 2010 "Year of the Tiger" will be released at the same time.
