Elizabeth II, Royal Mint Proof set 1980
In 1980 the Royal Mint issued its first Proof Set for some time with frosted coins. What we mean by frosted is, the field is Brilliant Proof and the bust, devices, and lettering are Matt Proof. This is almost like a Wedgwood effect. The public loved it with the new frosting. It is hard to believe but that was over 40 years ago 1980! You get the 50p, 10p, 5p, 2p, 1p, and 1/2p all in Frosted Proof, all in the original case of an issue with the original Royal Mint packaging. Of course, over the past 40 years, the coins will have toned a little, but we always send you the best set that we have in stock when your order arrives.
