I was wondering how long until this turned up

Lol, you are right. I bought the proof set from RM this morning, I was there to buy some bullion and just threw the proof set in the basket while shopping. Is the only difference between proof and premium proof the wooden box?

Yes, and they each feature a different “medal”.

Still no announcement on the individual £2 coin, but the Royal Mint has this on its website

Very nice coin sets but I only want the Tolkien coin.

As I say earlier in the thread, the individual coin will be released later in the year in a variety of denominations and metals (both base and precious) and with packaging (box, booklet) specific to Tolkien and the coin design.

So if this is the only coin one is interested in, there’s really no need to buy the entire set.

See this link to register your interest for the individual coin release:

And of course there’s some information you’ve probably already seen about Tolkien and the coin design here:

Thanks for that link, Eorl. I’m definitely interested in the single Tolkien coin release.

I have a small collection of coins which were given to me when I was a child. Most of them are the beautiful Churchill commemoratives which I think were originally issued in the 60’s. Of little value but lovely to own. Tolkien will be in distinguished company.
