Difficult 1919 KN Penny Fine

During World War One, known as The Great War, the Royal Mint was so busy with the war effort that they did not have the time or facilities to make all the pennies that were required for circulation, so they asked two private mints in Birmingham to strike pennies for them in 1918 and 1919. The coins from the Heaton Mint carry an ‘H’ mint mark and the King’s Norton Mint coins carry a ‘KN’ mint mark. The mint marks are to the left of and just above the date on the pennies. The coins on offer are in Fine condition and a stark reminder of what happens when we are at war.

Elizabeth II, 1987 Deluxe Proof Set

For some reason the 1987 Proof Set has always been known as the Forgotten Proof Set. I can’t understand why. There are two coins, the 10p and the 50p which are only available in the Royal Mint sets. So if you need these two coins they have to come from a set. The 1987 Proof Set contains the £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p in the Royal Mint display case of issue. We offer this 1987 Proof Set in the Red leather presentation case.
