Elizabeth II, £1 (English Pound) 1987 Silver Proof Piedfort - in capsule

In 1984 the Royal Mint started its first series of Silver Proof Pounds, they were for Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and finally England. This 1987 issue was the last of the series and was for England. These are the normal coins that are used in circulation, but special collectors editions which the Royal Mint struck in Proof Sterling Silver and an even smaller number in double thick Sterling Silver, which they call Piedfort. Many collectors believe that they should start at the beginning of a series and then work toward today’s coins. The coins we offer are the Piedforts. Each coin comes in the protective capsule as issued by the Mint. Sterling Silver is 925 parts Silver per 1,000 parts total and is the Silver that our coins used to be made of. Remember these are double the normal thickness. Add this beautiful Sterling Silver Piedfort Proof Pound to your collection, it’s a nice place to start…

Elizabeth II, The Last 5 Crowns Collection

Fantastic Collection of the last 5 Crowns Ever In 1981 the Royal Mint issued its last British Crown ever. They are issuing crown-sized coins today, but they have a nominal face value of £5 and they are certainly NOT crowns. The last Five Crowns ever were, Churchill Crown 1965, Silver Wedding Crown 1972, Silver Jubilee Crown 1977, Queen Mother’s 80th Birthday Crown and Charles & Diana’s Wedding Crown 1981. Remember the first crown-sized coin of five shillings was issued in 1551 by King Edward VI and the last one was in 1981. We have had a fantastic package made to display the last five crowns and it is exclusive to Coincraft. These sets make excellent gifts for family, friends and business associates. One marketing company is selling the 1977 Crown on its own for £9.95, so our price of just £24.95 for all five crowns is very reasonable.

Elizabeth II, £1 (Northern Ireland Pound) 1986 Proof Sterling Silver

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.
