1 Penny 2008 Silver Proof_obv

1 Penny 2008 Silver Proof

In 2008, the Royal Mint introduced new reverse designs on our coinage. The lowest denomination was the decimal One Penny which had, since its introduction in 1971, borne the distinctive crowned portcullis chained design on the reverse, the badge of the Beaufort family and later adopted by Henry Tudor but also the official emblem of the UK Parliament. To mark the final use of this design on the One Penny coin, the Royal Mint struck some in silver proof and it is these special coins that we offer you here, but we have a limited number available, supplied in protective capsules.

1996 Deluxe Proof Set In Leather Case

In 1996 the Queen celebrated her 70th Birthday and the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 piece to honour the event. They also struck a handsome and unique £2 piece for the 10th European Football Championship. Each 1996 Proof Set contains: The commemorative £5 for the Queen’s 70th Birthday, the Football £2, plus the £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p. Most important: the 50p was not struck for circulation, so if you need one, you have to get it from one of the sets. The Proof Set is specially struck in a high mirrored finish and placed in a display case.

2005 50p Dictionary Silver Piedfort_obv

2005 50p Dictionary Silver Piedfort

In 2005 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative 50 Pence to honour the 250th anniversary of Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary of the English Language. Without this momentous work, we wouldn’t know what a lot of words mean today. You have a series of words on one side with the inscription ‘Johnson’s Dictionary 1755’. The other side has a portrait of H.M. the Queen and this coin is struck in Proof Sterling Silver. This is also a coin that is missing from many collections, especially in Silver. Supplies are limited and we believe that our price for this older and very important commemorative coin is less than the Royal Mint will be charging for this year’s commemorative.

Elizabeth II Memorial Quarter Sovereign 2022 BU_obv

Elizabeth II Memorial Quarter Sovereign 2022 BU

The Royal Mint introduced a new denomination of gold coin in 2009, the Quarter Sovereign. Most of these coins have only been issued in Proof but, in 2022, they issued a design that will be used for only one year and it would be the last one to feature the portrait of our late Queen Elizabeth II. They struck them in both Proof and Uncirculated condition and we have managed to obtain a small quantity of the Brilliant Uncirculated 2022 Quarter Sovereign. Each contains 1.997 grams of 22ct Gold. We don’t know the mintage yet, but I believe it to be rather small. One of the country’s largest gold wholesalers has none in stock but we have them for just £155 and at this price they will quickly sell out.

Elizabeth II Penny 1970 Proof_obv

Elizabeth II Penny 1970 Proof

In 1970, the Royal Mint struck the last pre-decimal coins this country would ever have. But you couldn’t even get one of them in change, because they were only struck for the 1970 Proof Set, none were struck for circulation.

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.

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, £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, £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.

In 1991 the Royal Mint issued a special collectors edition of the Pound coin, it was struck in Proof Sterling Silver. It had a flax plant on it to honour Northern Ireland.

Elizabeth II, £1 (Royal Arms) 1993 Proof Sterling Silver

In 1993 the Royal Mint issued a Pound coin to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Round Pound. It had exactly the same reverse design as the 1983 issue, but Elizabeth II's portrait was by a different engraver. The Mint issued coins for circulation in a base metal and for collectors a similar version but in Proof Sterling Silver. For their VIP collectors they issued the coin in Piedfort or double the normal thickness Proof Sterling Silver. It is that VIP example that we now offer to you. As the Round Pound is no more, that makes these Sterling Silver Proofs even more desirable for collectors. After all the series is finished now and you know what pieces you need to complete your collection. The 1993 Piedfort Silver Proof Round Pound is most impressive and missing from many collections. It is best to get one now while they are still available.

Elizabeth II, £1 (Royal Arms) 1998 Silver Proof Piedfort - in Royal Mint case

In 1998 the Royal Mint used the reverse die that they used on the first non-gold pound ever in 1983, the arms of Great Britain. In our opinion, it is the most attractive of the designs and by using just one design, they could cut down on the number of counterfeits in circulation. There are so many different designs in circulation, that even a coin dealer doesn’t know which ones are right and which ones are wrong. These were struck in Proof Sterling Silver Piedfort or double thickness. You have the Great Britain reverse and the Rank-Broadly bust of the Queen on the obverse. Each coin comes in a protective capsule in the Royal Mint case of issue. Also, you must remember that the 1998 issue is not that easy to get. Supplies are limited ad at £59.50

This handsome Sterling Silver proof version of the Pound coin was issued in 1994 when the design was to honour Scotland. You have a rampant Lion on one side with the so-called Maklouf bust of the Queen on the other side. These are Special Collector’s Editions struck in Proof Sterling Silver by the Royal Mint. They had an original mintage limit of 25,000, but I don’t know how many they actually struck. Each Sterling Silver Proof comes in a protective capsule inside the original Royal Mint case of issue. The design is most attractive and it would be very difficult today to even get a normal circulation issue in Uncirculated let alone Silver Proof. Now some 26 years old and not an easy coin to find, a great gift if you know someone born or married in 1994 and with the new Pound Coin just released, interest and demand for these older issues is greater.

From dates that started 19—to ones that started 20—. The Royal Mint as usual issued a Sterling Silver version of the Pound coins for VIP collectors. It had a beautiful rendition of the Welsh Dragon and is one of the most beautiful of the Pound designs. Of course this size and composition of the Pound coin has already changed...

Elizabeth II, £1 1983 (Arnold Machin Bust) Proof Sterling Silver - in capsule

The non-gold pound coin was first issued in 1983. What many collectors don’t realise is that the Arnold Machin bust of the Queen was struck for only two years, 1983 and 1984. Thus not only was it the first issue but also the shortest and most difficult to get. The Royal Mint issued special editions for collectors in Proof Sterling Silver in both the normal thickness and in double thickness or Piedfort. Offered here is the 1983 issue in Proof. It comes in Sterling Silver and in a protective capsule. A very short mintage and now getting rather difficult to get.

The Piedfort Silver Pounds were first started when the Pound itself was started in 1983. The series went on till 2020 when the Pound coin was changed to the current bimetallic issues. The Key, the most difficult to get has always been the 1983 Piedfort Pound. In fact, when one of the Japanese Coin firms tried to put 1,000 collections together years ago they were willing to pay up to £245 for this coin. Our normal price on the 1983 Piedfort Pound is £135. But we bought a dealer's hoard and for this issue only we are going to offer them to our clients at a very special price of just £110. That saves you £25.00 on the Key Date of the series. Supplies are very limited and we will offer this special price for this issue only or until our supply lasts.

Elizabeth II, £1 1984 Brilliant Uncirculated

In 1984 the Royal Mint issued its second Pound coin for collectors. It was the start of a four-coin series to honour, the different parts of the United Kingdom. In this case, the 1984 issue had a thistle for Scotland on it. They quickly sold out and the prices increased to somewhat ridiculous heights. Luckily the overseas buyers have stopped buying and the price of the 1984 Pound has come down to a level that makes it interesting again for collectors.
