1973 Proof Set Medal

Each year from 1970 until 1996 the Royal Mint struck a special rectangular medal for inclusion in the Proof Set. These medals are bronze and have sometimes been darkened to blend in with the Proof Set. They are dated and they issued one a year. Here we offer the 1973 medal. We normally sell these medals for between £3.95-£5.95, but right now we are selling them at a special price, because we need the storage space!

Picture of United States of America, Death of President Kennedy 1963-2013 50th Anniversary Set

United States of America, Death of President Kennedy 1963-2013 50th Anniversary Set

In November 1963 President John F. Kennedy was killed in Dallas, Texas. Most of us who are old enough to have been alive at the time remember exactly where we were when we first heard of the killing. Coincraft have issued a unique memento of this man and of his successes. We have kept the price very low in order to make this set accessible to as many collectors as possible. This set is to honour a great man and not to make a lot of money. This collection is only available from Coincraft and it makes an excellent gift to people who remember Kennedy and coin collectors all over the world. There are two unique Kennedy Half Dollars, both legal tender and both capable of being used as real money, rather than the non circulating legal tender coins that most mints issue today. The first is a one year type coin issued for America’s bi-centennial and it is in Proof condition, the finest quality available. The second coin is dated 2013 and was issued to honour the 50th anniversary of his death. The collection also includes a United States Kennedy stamp that has actually been used. The package includes details for what Kennedy did, such as founded the Peace Corps, launched the Moon race and fought for civil rights. There is also a fascinating list of the similarities between the killing of Kennedy and President Lincoln. The collection is priced at just £9.95 and is priced to be given as a gift.

Picture of Elizabeth II, 20 Pence 1982 Piedfort

Elizabeth II, 20 Pence 1982 Piedfort

In 1982 the Royal Mint introduced a new denomination, the 20 Pence Piece. As most collectors are aware, it was in fact not a new denomination, but a recreation of the Double Florin which was issued under Queen Victoria from 1887-1890. This coin had many sides and the public immediately liked it. The Royal Mint issued a small quantity of these coins in Sterling Silver Proof but they were double the normal thickness and are called a Piedfort. This is the first Piedfort that the Royal Mint allowed collectors to buy and has proved to be very popular. They are struck in Proof Sterling Silver and come in a blue Royal Mint case of issue.
