Elizabeth II, £1 (English Pound) 1992 Proof Sterling Silver FDC - in capsule

In 1987 the Royal Mint issued a pound coin with the Oak Tree to represent England and in 1992 they repeated this design on the Pound coin. Again they issued the coins as Sterling Silver Proofs for collectors but in 1992 the mintage was considerably lower than in 1987. All coins are Proof Sterling Silver and in their original capsules as issued. Supplies are short and with the new design of the pound coin just released these older issues will be in greater demand.

Elizabeth II, 50 Pence (NHS) 1998 Silver Proof Piedfort

In 1998 the Royal Mint issued a special 50 Pence honouring the National Health Service (NHS). They made some special coins for very special collectors. They were struck in Proof Sterling Silver and were twice the normal thickness or Piedforts. We have just bought 10 of these important type coins. With what some of the prices that are being asked for ‘common’ current coins, we think this is good value.
