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.

It is the first coin of the new series with the Rank- Broadley bust of the Queen. All of the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and quite difficult to get.
