With King Charle III’s coronation just days away, Brits are splurging the cash on royal memorabilia to mark the occasion.
It has been estimated that a whopping £300m will be splashed on Royal Coronation mementoes including cups, tea towels, spoons and other more.
But the experts claim the more unique the better if you’re looking to invest

One of the most hilarious and bizarre coronation products on the market comes from Riot Labs who have launched a 10-piece coronation collection.
The line of vapes has been modelled on King Charles’ famous fingers – or “sausages” – including his sovereign-clad pink ring finger.
You can now puff and suck away on one of King Charles’ famous digits, Riot Labs recommend storing them as collector’s item for years to come.
The vape flavours are even Royal themed, with Victoria Sponge, Scotch Egg, Breakfast Tea, Coronation Chicken, and Champagne included in the collectable set.
Recent media comments from Daniel Wade, manager at Paul Fraser Collectibles, claimed if you’re looking to splash the cash on a coronation keepsake, the more unique the better.
He said: “Memorabilia will be produced in such large numbers that there will be insufficient rarity to drive prices upwards in years to come.

“Plus, so many people today have the idea of buying memorabilia as an investment that many owners will keep them in pristine condition – meaning the market will be saturated for decades”.
Adding the “very limited-edition memorabilia” and “not something you could get from Kings Cross Station” will be the crème de la crème to look out for this year.
A limited number of the Riot Coronation Collection will go on sale today (Thursday, May 4).
The coronation isn’t the only royal event to inspire strange collectables, for the Prince of Wales, William’s marriage to Kate collectable teabags and toilet seats were sold.

Riot Labs CEO, Ben Johnson, said: “Prince Phillip was a heavy smoker, Prince Harry loved a fag, and even the Queen Consort enjoyed lighting up.
“At an important juncture in our Royal timeline, we wanted to commemorate King Charles' with this unique 10-piece collection based on the Kings' famous digits.
“With PHE (Public Health England) backing e-cigarettes as the best tool to quit tobacco, and the Government launching their own initiatives, we wanted to create a bit of Royal history when choosing e-cigarettes over tobacco is so front of mind.
“It's a bit of Coronation fun but based on the expert comments, the collection could make you more than 10 digits richer in 50 years-time."
