1953 Coronation Crown Proof_obv

Elizabeth II, Crown (Coronation) 1953 Proof

We found a small number of the 1953 Coronation Crown in Proof condition in stock. These had to come from Proof Sets as they didn’t issue the crown in proof as a single coin. We have heard of some crazy prices that are either being asked for this coin or even sold for. These coins are Proof and that is all we will say about them. Some have a sort of misty toning on them, we do not touch or clean them. They are Proof 1953 Coronation Crowns from a 1953 Proof Set.

Bank of England Presentation Set C108 G E A Kentfield Sheetlet £5 X 3 Sheet AC01-3 Unc

In 1993 the Bank of England celebrated the 200th Anniversary of the issue of the first £5 note. At the same time, the Bank of England was changing over from printing their notes from a web fed roll to smaller individual sheets. 25 years ago the Bank issued 1500 uncut sheets of 3 of each type of the £5 note. We are offering Uncut sheets of the £5 note printed by the Sheet Fed Process. (C108) The sheetfed notes have the first of the new prefix. In fact, we have seen the AC01 Prefix sell for £110 on its own. Another dealer is selling this Uncut Sheet of 3 for £200 – our price is just £95. Remember only 1500 sheets were ever issued!

Elizabeth II, 1953 Coronation Proof Set

In 1953 Queen Elizabeth II had her Coronation, while she had been Queen for almost a year, this made it Official. It is Royal Mint policy only to issue coins for a new Monarch only after their Coronation. So, although Elizabeth became our Queen in 1952, no coins were issued until after her Coronation in 1953. The 1953 coins are one year only coins, as the next year they changed the legend slightly. In the Coronation Proof Set you have the Crown, Halfcrown, Florin, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Sixpence, brass Threepence, Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing. The Proof Set comes in a maroon case, but because of the padding used in the cases, the insides are sometimes a bit spotty. The bronze coins may have toned or mellowed but the coins are all in Proof condition, as issued.

Elizabeth II, 2020 Four Coin Gold Proof Set

Elizabeth II, 2020 Four Coin Gold Proof Set

In 2020 the Royal Mint issued a four-piece Gold Proof Set to honour the 200th anniversary of the end of George III’s rule. George III is our 3rd longest-serving Monarch after Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II. Each brilliant Proof Gold coin has a special George III privy mark. There were only 600 sets made and they sold out almost immediately. When this description was written each set of £2, £1, £1/2, and £1/4 contained about £1,300 worth of gold. The original Royal Mint price was £1,945. We have seen a few offered for sale on the internet at prices we could not believe. These coins have the Jody Clark bust of the Queen on them, how much longer the Mint will use his portrait, now that he has left the Mint, who knows? Each four coin Gold Proof set comes in a handsome wooden presentation box with a certificate and explanation booklet. You will love the presentation. We have managed to buy just 20 of these gold proof sets and our price to our clients is just £200 over the Official Royal Mint sold out issue price. We buy right, we sell right and this one is really right. Remember there is about £1,300 worth of gold in the set alone…
