A collection of more than 10,000 Chinese-made commemorative mugs and plates recently made headlines for containing a crucial misspelling where Jubilee was misspelled as “Jubbly”. These souvenirs are currently selling for nearly £10 each on Wholesale Clearance, a site that claims buyers can make a profit of 200 pieces by investing in the items.
But Paul Fraser Collectables’ Daniel Wade questioned their ability to make money. “You can’t see the future, but we’re not convinced that many of the mass-market anniversary products offered today will hold their value over the next 10 or 20 years,” he said.
A personal note
Letters and Christmas cards signed by members of the royal family and sent to friends and associates are likely to increase in price over time, Mr Wade said.
Signatures of the Duke of Cambridge are now selling for around £3,500, compared with £2,500 in 2016, according to an index produced by the firm.
Autographed cards and notes from the Queen can fetch up to £4,500, while the value of Prince Harry’s autographs and letters has fallen slightly to £1,750, from £2,000 in 2018.
Cakes from the weddings of the great royals are also a better investment, Mr Daniels added. A 40-year-old slice of cake from Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding sold for nearly £2,000 last year.
A slice of cake from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s 2011 wedding sold for around £4,000 at an auction in Beverly Hills, California in 2014.
