In 1985 the Royal Mint issued its third Pound coin and, for collectors, they also issued them in Proof Sterling Silver. It was part of a four coin series to honour the different parts of the United Kingdom. In this case the 1985 issue had a leek for Wales on it and in this same year the Royal Mint also changed the portrait of Her Majesty on our coinage from the Machin bust to the so-called Maklouf bust engraved by Raphael Maklouf.
So you have the first year of a new portrait of the Queen and you have it on a Sterling Silver Proof example of the One Pound coin.
They are in Choice Proof FDC condition in a capsule and struck in Sterling Silver, add one to your collection, there are not as many around as there once were.

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.

Elizabeth II, £1 1986 Silver Proof

Richard came across these two 1986 Silver Proof British coins the other day while going through the vaults. They are the 1986 Sterling Silver Proof Pounds, this is the older design when coins were all one metal through and through. The other coin is the same coin but a Piedfort or double the normal thickness, double the amount of Sterling Silver. These Piedforts are known as the VIP edition. These have the Northern Ireland reverse, the reverse used in 1986. At auctions we have seen prices for these modern Royal Mint Proofs show very strong results. We know most dealers do not have a stock, so probably that these early Royal Mint silver coins will really start to be collected. Get them while you can, we have not increased our prices.
