Elizabeth II, £1 1983 (the first) Piedfort Silver Proof

The Piedfort Silver Pounds were first started when the Pound itself was started in 1983. The series went on till 2020 when the Pound coin was changed to the current bimetallic issues. The Key, the most difficult to get has always been the 1983 Piedfort Pound. In fact, when one of the Japanese Coin firms tried to put 1,000 collections together years ago they were willing to pay up to £245 for this coin. Our normal price on the 1983 Piedfort Pound is £135. But we bought a dealer's hoard and for this issue only we are going to offer them to our clients at a very special price of just £110. That saves you £25.00 on the Key Date of the series. Supplies are very limited and we will offer this special price for this issue only or until our supply lasts.

Elizabeth II, £1 1983 (Arnold Machin Bust) Proof Sterling Silver - in capsule

The non-gold pound coin was first issued in 1983. What many collectors don’t realise is that the Arnold Machin bust of the Queen was struck for only two years, 1983 and 1984. Thus not only was it the first issue but also the shortest and most difficult to get. The Royal Mint issued special editions for collectors in Proof Sterling Silver in both the normal thickness and in double thickness or Piedfort. Offered here is the 1983 issue in Proof. It comes in Sterling Silver and in a protective capsule. A very short mintage and now getting rather difficult to get.
