Availability: In stock

The 1985 Mint Set was special for two reasons, firstly because this was the year that the new effigy of our Queen was introduced on the coins. It was enraved by the sculptor Rafael Maklouf and it was only the third portrait of The Queen to be used on UK coinage since her accession in 1952.

The second reason is that there were two coins that were NOT struck for circulation, the 5p and the 10p, which are inclued in this set so, if you want or need either of these two coins for your collection you have to break up a Mint Set or a Proof Set.

The 1985 Mint Set comprises the £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p coins all in Specimen Uncirculated condition. It is housed in an informative full colour bubble pack as issued by the Royal Mint.

Remember that the 5p and 10p of 1985 were not struck for circulation but they are included in this set.

16x Folding Magnifying Glass

This is the type of magnifying glass that dealers take with them when they go out to look at coins. It is a 16 x Wide Field folding magnifying glass. The way to use it is to put the glass near your eye and then bring the thing you want to see into the glass until it is focused. These come to us from the United States. The quality is very good and it folds into itself to protect the lens.

Elizabeth II, Bubble Pack Crown 1981 (Charles & Diana)

In 1981 when Charles and Diana got married, the Royal Mint was experimenting with a new finish for their coins. They call them Brilliant Uncirculated but experienced numismatists know that they are better so they call them what they are, specimens. They are Prooflike, the surfaces are clear of any imperfections and they are just better condition than any coin you will find in your change. These Crowns come in a full colour bubble pack showing the engaged couple with Diana in her famous blue dress. Inside they outline the history of the House of Windsor and show St. Pauls. It has been some time since we last had any of these bubble pack crowns and with the current interest in decimal coins, these should be quite popular.
