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.

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

This was the last of the set of four Pounds issued to represent the different parts of the United Kingdom, being Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and finally England. You have an oak tree inside a crown and the so-called Maklouf bust of Queen Elizabeth II on the other side. These are the special VIP editions of the Pound coin struck in Proof Sterling Silver. Each coin comes in a protective capsule and is gleaming just the way it came from the Royal Mint. The last of the series but certainly not the last Pound coin of the century. Add this one to your collection now and you can add the other coins from this series later.

Elizabeth II, £1 (Crowned Royal Shield of Arms) 1988 Proof Sterling Silver FDC - in capsule

In 1988, the Royal Mint issued a new Pound coin, the reverse of this coin had a shield shaped like the old Spade Guinea, therefore it became known as the Spade Guinea Pound. They also issued a smaller number for collectors in Proof Sterling Silver and it is this collector’s edition that we offer you here. You have the so-called Maklouf bust of the Queen on the obverse and the Spade Guinea-type shield on the reverse. These coins are now nearly 30 years old and if you know someone having a birthday or wedding anniversary from 1988, these make excellent and unique gifts. Each Proof Sterling Silver 1988 Pound comes in a protective capsule to keep it as nice as the day it was issued.
