George V, Roman Numeral dated (MDCDXI St. George Patina) Set of 3

These are some of the finest King George V Patina Retro-Patterns that were ever made. You have the bare head of the King on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. They are full crownsized and exceptionally highly struck, today no mint could issue such high relief coins, they would take 2-3 blows to strike them and that is just not economical. You get one in Sterling Silver, one in goldine and one in copper all in Proof condition. One important point about this set is that the date is not in Arabic numerals but they harked back to Victorian times and put the date in Roman numerals (MDCDXI). The mintage of this set was just 750 sets and one can be yours for only £89.50. Which we think is reasonable.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Collection of 3 Silver Proof Round Pounds (1983-2014)

Elizabeth II, Collection of 3 Silver Proof Round Pounds (1983-2014)

Since the round pound was first issued in 1983 there have been 3 different busts of H.M. the Queen: The Machin bust (1983-4), the so-called Maklouf bust (1985-97), and the Rank-Broadley bust (1998-2014). We have taken one of each type in gleaming Sterling Silver Proof, put them in a protective holder, and then put all 3 holders in a handsome display case. That way you can see all three busts at the same time. Some of the types are not easy to get, so We think our price for this three-piece type set of just £125 is quite reasonable, but supplies are very limited. They are not easy to find. This would make a wonderful gift for someone, especially if they are too young to remember the Round Pound. The three Sterling Silver Proof Pounds in a handsome display case just £125.00. All 3 portraits of the Queen.

Elizabeth II, £1 1983 (the first) Piedfort Silver Proof

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.
