Elizabeth II, 1986 Deluxe Proof Set

The 1986 Proof Set is one of the most important Proof Sets of it’s time. Four of the coins in this Proof Set were not struck for circulation! Those coins are the 5p, 10p, 20p and 50p. That means if you need any of these four coins for your collection, then you have to break up a Mint or Proof Set. It also contains the first-ever non-Gold £2 coin. It was issued for the Commonwealth Games which were held in Edinburgh. Each 1986 Proof Set contains £2, £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p, of which four coins were not struck for circulation. Offered here is the Deluxe Set which comes in a red leather case rather than the standard blue. The coins are the same, only the case changes. Over the years all Proof Sets will tone slightly, but we always give you the best set that we have in stock at the time of your order.

Picture of George VI, Penny 1949 Brilliant Uncirculated

George VI, Penny 1949 Brilliant Uncirculated

In 1949 the Royal Mint changed the legend on our coinage, IND IMP was omitted. This was due to India gaining its independence from this country and there was no longer a reason to have it on the legend. There were only two more pennies after this issue and both of these are Rare and very expensive, especially in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. If you want an important type coin, at a price that won’t break the bank, then this 1949 Penny without IND IMP is the coin for you. All of the coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and came from a bag that was found in a bank in the United States. They had been there since 1949! These are priced right to entice and delight you and at our price, it might be interesting to buy a couple of extra pieces for trading with other collectors.

L K O'Brien £1 Portrait B281 A Prefix GEF/Unc

It was in 1960 when L K O’Brien was Chief Cashier that the Bank of England decided to issue notes with the portrait of the reigning monarch Elizabeth II. This was quite a departure because until that point the only illustration on Bank of England notes was of Britannia. Britannia was still featured but this time in a seal which appeared on the back of the notes. The portrait of the young Queen Elizabeth II appeared on the front. There were two regular varieties of the O’Brien Portrait £1 note with the catalogue references of B281 and B282. Here we offer the B281 £1 Note with the prefix A- in Uncirculated condition.

Elizabeth II, 50 Pence (EEC) 1973 BU

Let’s be honest, forget all the bull that is being given out, this was the first Brexit coin. It is an old large-sized 50 Pence which was issued in 1973. It was the first-ever commemorative 50 Pence pieces, the series they are issuing today are based on this coin. It was issued to honour our joining the European Economic Community or EU for short. In 1973 we joined it, in 2021 we are finally rid of it. They were only issued in cupro-nickel but in both Uncirculated and Proof condition. Without this coin, we could never have a coin for leaving the EU, if you aren’t a member you cannot resign. Much underappreciated even though it was our first-ever commemorative 50p, which is now 47 years old. We can offer it in Brilliant Uncirculated, Proof and Proof with the Royal Mint case. The choice is yours.
