In 1984 the Royal Mint issued its second Pound coin and, for collectors, they also issued them in Proof Sterling Silver. It was the start of a four-coin series to honour the different parts of the United Kingdom. In this case, the 1984 issue had a thistle for Scotland on it. The obverse has the bust of Queen Elizabeth engraved by Arnold Machin.

The Silver Proofs quickly sold out and the prices increased to somewhat incredible heights. Luckily the overseas buyers have stopped buying and the price of the 1984 Pound in Silver Proof has come down to a level that makes it interesting again for collectors.

Each coin comes in a protective capsule and is struck in Sterling Silver. The edition was very limited and they quickly sold out.

In 1988, the Royal Mint issued a new Pound coin, the reverse of this coin had a shield shaped like the old Spade Guinea, therefore it became known as the Spade Guinea Pound.

You have the so-called Maklouf bust of the Queen on the obverse and the Spade Guinea-type shield on the reverse.

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.
