What England’s Cricket World Cup win means for collectors…

Source: BT.com

For the first time EVER, England have become World Cup Cricket champions in one of the most nail-biting finals in sporting history! Whether you are into cricket or not, there’s no denying this is a really exciting time for English sport – I have to admit, I’m not a Cricket fanatic but I was on the edge of my seat watching the end of the match to see if we would win and was totally bowled over (pardon the pun) when we won!

This historic win got me thinking, what does this mean for collectors? Well, I’ve been doing some research to find some of the best, most sought-after pieces, so here’s a quick run-down on pieces you should look out for…

The UK Cricket 10p Coin – 2019 dated…

Back in March 2018, for the first time ever, a set of 26 UK A-Z commemorative 10ps were issued by The Royal Mint. On release, collectors were scrambling to get find them in their change. There’s limited numbers in circulation as it is and because collectors are snapping them up when they find them, they are actually really difficult to come across. I haven’t found any myself yet and am always very envious when I speak to someone who has! Some of course are more popular than others, but there’s one that’s more sought-after than any other at the moment – the ‘C’ 10p, that’s because it marks English Cricket!

They were released into circulation with the 2018 date on release and this year, new 2019 dated versions were released. Of course, owning the 2019 dated version as a memento of the World Cup is something collectors are desperate for, but hard to track down.

The good news is, through my contacts at the Mint, I’ve secured a limited number of these sought-after 2019 dated Cricket 10ps for collectors and you can own one today within our England 2019 Cricket Winners Capsule Edition. It’s a great, affordable memento of this historic moment but it’s already selling FAST! Limited to just 2,019 Winners editions worldwide, you’ll need to be quick to secure one.

Official Cricket 50ps to be released into circulation, but extremely difficult to find…

Unsurprisingly, it seems the official collectables are amongst some of the most popular. A set of brand new Official ICC Cricket World Cup 50ps were issued recently and they had cricket fans and 50p collectors going mad for them…

They’re set to be released into circulation in the Isle of Man, which means finding them in your change will be extremely difficult, especially outside of the Isle of Man. Mainly because collectors will be snapping them up as soon as they find them. Something collectors do look out for is exclusive and limited presentations of coins that little bit different and when it comes to cricket, if they’re autographed, then they’re even more sought-after. So we were so excited to be able to track down some of these sought-after 50ps through our contacts AND to get a Cricket legend to sign them for collectors…

This capsule edition features the Official ICC Cricket World Cup Batsman 50p alongside one of the greatest batsman of all time – Graham Gooch or ‘Goochy’s’ signature. Graham hand-signed 250 exclusively for Collectology, which makes this one of the most sought-after ways to own the coin! It’s already OVER 50% SOLD and selling even faster since we won yesterday, so you’ll need to be quick to secure one… Click here if you’re interested >>

I was lucky enough to meet with ‘Goochy’ recently for the signing and an exclusive interview! He was such a great guy. If you missed our interview with him, you can check it out here >>


Other sought-after Cricketer’s autographs worth thousands…

Other autographs to look out for are of course, the World Cup Cricket team’s. Shirts and balls signed by them during or after the World Cup will be extremely sought-after and likely to increase in value. Others include the champ King of Spin, Shane Warne’s and Glen McGrath’s, David Gower and fast bowler, Fred Truemans’. Of course, Freddie Flintoff’s autograph is also sought-after. Owning their autographs on a cricket shirt or on a cricket ball is even better. In fact, a cricket ball signed by Fred Trueman sold for a staggering £10,000 when it was first sold! A cricket ball signed by Shane Warne also sold recently for £125! Not bad.
