Elizabeth II, £2 Dove of Peace 1995 Unc

In 1995 the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £2 piece to mark the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II. They used the iconic Dove of Peace and the inscription read ‘1945 In Peace Goodwill 1995’. They were struck in a brass coloured metal for general circulation. You must remember that this was 25 years ago and we at that time used the older large sized Two Pound coin. You have the so-called Maklouf portrait of the Queen on one side and the Dove of Peace on the other side. While it is relatively easy to find Prooflike Specimen coins from the bubble packs and Mint Sets, it is not so easy to find the coins that were actually struck for circulation. The coins on offer are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and the difficult ones, the ones issued for circulation.

Picture of Elizabeth II, 1990 Proof Set

Elizabeth II, 1990 Proof Set

In 1990 the Royal Mint reduced the size of the Five Pence piece, to the size we use today. The 1990 Proof Set is rather Special, as it contains both sizes of the Five Pence, both large and small. The large sized Five Pence was not struck for circulation. In fact this Proof Set contains three coins that were not issued for circulation, the large sized 5p, the 10p and the 50p. So this is a very important set and one that many collectors are missing. You get the £1, 50p (not issued for circulation), 20p, 10p (not issued for circulation), Large sized 5p (not issued for circulation), small sized 5p, 2p and 1p. Offered here is the 1990 Proof Set in the normal blue case.

Elizabeth II, £2 Silver Proof, 1986

It has a Scottish Thistle in the middle of the Scottish flag, with the cross of St. Andrew. The obverse has the so called Maklouf portrait of the Queen. They were struck in base metal for general circulation and in Proof Sterling Silver for collectors. Today these coins are getting more and more difficult to find. It is the first non Gold Two Pound piece and a commemorative.

Picture of Elizabeth II, £5 Queen Mother 90th Birthday, 1990

Elizabeth II, £5 Queen Mother 90th Birthday, 1990

In 1990 the late Queen Mother celebrated her 90th birthday and the Royal Mint issued a special commemorative £5 piece to honour that event. They also issued a specimen example in an early type of bubble pack, not as fancy as the modern packaging, not as expensive as the modern ones either. You have a crowned cipher on the reverse with the dates 1900-1990 and H. M. the Queen on the obverse. These are still mint sealed, in a smaller package which is easier to store. We found 25 of them in one of the vault rooms and while they last, you can have one for a great price!
