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.

1987 Silver Proof Pound in capsule_obv

Elizabeth II, £1 1987 Silver Proof FDC (in capsule)

This was the last of the set of four Pounds issued to represent the different parts of the United Kingdom, being Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and finally England. You have an oak tree inside a crown and the so-called Maklouf bust of the Queen on the other side. These are the special VIP editions of the Pound coin struck in Proof Sterling Silver. Each coin comes in a protective capsule and is gleaming just the way it came from the Royal Mint. The last of the series but certainly not the last Pound coin of the century. Add this one to your collection now and you can add the other coins from this series later.

Picture of Edward VIII, Wreath Set Milled 1936

Edward VIII, Wreath Set Milled 1936

The Patina series had a ‘Wreath Crown’ but dated 1937 and the mintage was 975 pieces, we quickly sold out. Last year was the 80th anniversary of The Year of Three Kings, so we are proud to offer this 1936 Patina with a much lower mintage of just 100 pieces in each metal. This crownsized beauty was struck in eight different metals and with two edges, plain and milled; here we offer you the milled-edged variant. We bought almost the entire mintage, except for four sets which went to the INA archives and to auction. The pieces are beautiful full crownsized Proofs, struck in Sterling Silver, Golden Alloy, Copper, Gold-coated Copper, Aluminium, Polished Steel, Pewter and Nickel Silver.
