Elizabeth II, 1971 Royal Mint Proof Set

6 coin set in original Royal Mint packaging.
Availability: In stock

Everyone knows that we went decimal in 1971, what most people don’t realise is that from 1971 to 1981 the denomination on our coins was ‘New Pence’ and not 'Pence'. In 1982 the Royal Mint dropped the word ‘New’ from the denomination.

These 1971 sets come sealed in a protective flat plastic case with a colour wrapper and contain the following coins 1/2p, 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p and 50p.

One of the coins in sets is no longer made, the Halfpence and three of these coins have now been downsized, the 5p, 10p and 50p. Of course these coins also have the denomination ‘New Pence’.

Please note that this early set has some toning on the coins but we will give you the best set available.

Elizabeth II, 1972 Royal Mint Proof Set

Of all the decimal Proof Sets the 1972 is the most important because none of the coins were issued for circulation, except for the crown that is. That means if you need the 50p, 10p, 5p, 2p, 1p or the 1/2p the only way you can get them is from the Proof Set. Plus of course you also get a Proof cupronickel Crown and the Royal Mint medal of 1972 in the original packaging.
