We recently found a set of the Round Pound put out by the Royal Mint. We think this is an important set, quantities available are small but we think the price might interest you. The first Round Pound was issued in 1983 but that represented the United Kingdom. From 1984-1987 they issued a different pound every year for Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, and England. This set of four Sterling Silver Piedfort comes in the Royal Mint case of the issue including the silver-plated 1984-87 medallion This set is struck in Proof Sterling Silver and comes in the original Royal Mint Case. Piedforts are double the normal thickness
Since the round pound was first issued in 1983 there have been 3 different busts of H.M. the Queen: The Machin bust (1983-4), the so-called Maklouf bust (1985-97), and the Rank-Broadley bust (1998-2014). We have taken one of each type in gleaming Sterling Silver Proof, put them in a protective holder, and then put all 3 holders in a handsome display case. That way you can see all three busts at the same time. Some of the types are not easy to get, so We think our price for this three-piece type set of just £125 is quite reasonable, but supplies are very limited. They are not easy to find. This would make a wonderful gift for someone, especially if they are too young to remember the Round Pound. The three Sterling Silver Proof Pounds in a handsome display case just £125.00. All 3 portraits of the Queen.
We all admired the excellent award winning movie, ‘The King’s Speech’ in 2010 which showed King George VI’s determination and strength. Now you can own original coins from the reign of George VI issued from 1937-1952, a Coronation Stamp issued in 1937 and a banknote issued just after World War II. You’ll receive the coins that were actually used during George VI’s reign: the bronze Farthing, Halfpenny and Penny, plus the brass Threepence, Silver Threepence and cupronickel Sixpence, Shilling, Florin and Half Crown. These are original, genuine coins and were actually used as money in the reign of King George VI. You also get an Uncirculated British Armed Forces 2nd series Pound issued by Command of the Army Council in 1948. To top it off, you get a Mint stamp issued in 1937 for George VI’s Coronation, issued and overprinted for use in British Morocco. This collection is exclusive to Coincraft. The entire collection comes in a presentation wallet loaded with interesting and historic information.
During World War One the silver coinage was struck in Sterling Silver and the bronze coins were really bronze. We have put together type sets of the coins that were struck and used during World War One. You get the Sterling Silver, Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence, and Threepence plus the bronze Penny, Halfpenny, and Farthing. All coins will have been minted between 1914 and 1918. Dates will vary in the set but all are original and genuine. The coins will be in Very Good or better condition, considering that they are at least 100 years old, we think they are in quite a nice condition. The Royal Mint charges £150 in a case! The coins will come in individual envelopes to save space when you store them. Also, that way you don’t have to pay £50.50 extra for a case you don’t want.
