How you can make a right royal mint

We Brits have always been enthusiastic collectors of royal memorabilia. But when it comes to making money from them in the future, it pays to be careful what you go for.

Right now, there are some really attractive bits and pieces you could pick up on the high street. Marks and Spencer has a suitably regal coronation cushion with embroidered crowns on it for £22.50, John Lewis has a lovely coronation teddy for £15 and Fortnum & Mason has a beautiful Darjeeling coronation tea caddy for £19.95. They all look great and are fun to have in the home, but they’re mass-produced so unlikely to increase in value much, if at all.

So, if you’re a keen coronation collector, but you want to pick up items that you could sell for more later on, what should you be aiming for?
