Royal Yacht Britannia Gifts

Royl Yacht logo

The Royal Yacht Britannia is the former Royal yacht of the British monarch. She was the 83rd Royal Yacht and when she was decommissioned she became an exhibition ship at Leith in Scotland. The yacht was built of the Clyde by John Brown and Co. On decommissioning teak which had been carefully stored as replacement decking was disposed of and it is this teak we have used for our Royal themed gift items and Royal navy items. The maritime themed coins will vary according to availability. Each coin has come from previous owners some have been cleaned by them some are tarnished so you can expect some variance from the coins pictured. These make superb paperweights.

With each item you get a handsigned letter on handmade paper telling you about the item. They come gift boxed and in the case of the Sheffield made folding knives with a certificate of authenticity from the maker.
