Elizabeth II, Royal Mint Proof Set 1987

7-coin set in original Royal Mint case
SKU: UPS87
£34.50

The 1987 Proof Set doesn’t look like much at first glance. There is the Pound coin that was issued with an English design plus the 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and the 1p.

Then you read the mintage figures for that year and you realise that the 10p and the 50p were not issued for circulation. That’s right, the two biggest coins were not struck for general usage. Therefore, if you collect coins by date, you will need to break a set up in order to obtain these two coins for your collection.

We think that the 1987 Proof Set is a much under appreciated set.

Elizabeth II, £2 (London Olympic Handover Ceremony) 2008 Silver Proof

This Sterling Silver Proof £2 coin was issued in 2008/2010 for the handover of the Olympics from Beijing to London. It has the Olympic flag being transferred from one hand to the other and the two different dates. It was issued by the Royal Mint and it is one issue that many collectors are missing as the edition limit was quite low and many people who collect Olympic memorabilia snapped them up and they went abroad. Each Sterling Silver Proof comes in a protective capsule as issued.
