Elizabeth II, Royal Mint 1981 Proof Set

When the first Decimal coin was issued in 1968 they carried the denomination ‘New Pence’, this was to differentiate them from the pre-decimal Pennies that were in circulation at the time. This denomination was carried on until 1982, when the denomination was changed from New Pence to Pence and the word 'New' was dropped from the legend. We have on offer the last of the New Pence Proof Set, the 1981 issue. Each set is complete with the black outer wrapper and the set itself is in a bright red case. The set comprises the 50p, 10p, 5p, 2p, 1p and 1/2p all in Proof condition plus the Royal Mint dated medal. Of course, over the past 32 years, some of the coins will have toned a little, but this is normal. One important point is that the 5 pence was NOT struck for circulation. So if you want a 1981 5 New Pence, you can only get it from this Proof Set.

Elizabeth II, Proof Set 1973 (Medium toning)

The 1973 Proof Set is a difficult one to get. Many of these sets have been spoiled by corrosion. All of the 1973 Proof Sets have medium to heavy toning, but some of them are so dark that we have to break them open and bank them. This was probably because of the glue they used to hold the pad down, too much rubber cement which gives off sulphur fumes. The sets we have on offer have medium toning which is quite hard to get. Each set contains the 50p, our first commemorative, 10p, 5p, 2p, 1p and 1/2p. Each set comes in the plastic case as issued with the red card wrapper. Nice sets of the 1973 issue are very difficult to find.
