Elizabeth II, £2 (Common Wealth Games) 1986 Proof Sterling Silver

In 1986 the Royal Mint issued its first-ever non-Gold Two Pound Piece. It was a commemorative for the Commonwealth Games which were held in Edinburgh, Scotland. It has a Scottish Thistle in the middle of the Scottish flag, with the cross of St. Andrew. The obverse has the so-called Maklouf portrait of the Queen. They were struck in base metal for general circulation and in Proof Sterling Silver for collectors. Today these coins are getting more and more difficult to find. It is the first non-Gold Two Pound piece and a commemorative.

Elizabeth II, 1990 Royal Mint Proof Set

In 1990 the Royal Mint reduced the size of the Five Pence piece, to the size we use today. The 1990 Proof Set is rather Special, as it contains both sizes of the Five Pence, both large and small. The large-sized Five Pence was not struck for circulation. In fact, this Proof Set contains three coins that were not issued for circulation, the large-sized 5p, the 10p, and the 50p. So this is a very important set and one that many collectors are missing. You get the £1, 50p (not issued for circulation), 20p, 10p (not issued for circulation), Large sized 5p (not issued for circulation), small-sized 5p, 2p and 1p. Offered here is the 1990 Proof Set in the normal blue case.
