In 1981 when Charles and Diana got married, the Royal Mint was experimenting with a new finish for their coins. They call them Brilliant Uncirculated but experienced numismatists know that they are better so they call them what they are, specimens. They are Prooflike, the surfaces are clear of any imperfections and they are just better condition than any coin you will find in your change. These Crowns come in a full colour bubble pack showing the engaged couple with Diana in her famous blue dress. Inside they outline the history of the House of Windsor and show St. Pauls. It has been some time since we last had any of these bubble pack crowns and with the current interest in decimal coins, these should be quite popular.
