If you don't mind us saying so, this stock upload is the perfect follow up to the previous one, it features many items that we think you will enjoy.
Don't miss out on the £5 Piedfort of the White Greyhound of Richmond, a great addition to your collection if you collect the Queen's Beasts series and you've recently purchased the White Lion of Mortimer.
Also featured are the 1996 Silver Proof Set, a coin from the Roman Emperor known as Constantine the Great, which you can add to your starter Roman Coin Collection, and Queen Victoria's 1887 Jubilee Head Shilling in Extremely Fine.
In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee 1952-1977. The Royal Mint issued the coins in Brilliant Uncirculated for circulation, but these coins are not easy to find. An old time dealer came in the other day and sold us 100 sets of these coins in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. There is no case for these coins because they are the real coins struck to be used. There are also four coins which are no longer made, the 1/2 Pence coin and the large sized 50 Pence, 10 Pence and 5 Pence pieces. Please remember that we have just 100 sets of these Silver Jubilee coins in stock and once they are gone, who knows where we will find any more. All coins were made to be used and all coins are unused Brilliant Uncirculated condition. You get the 1/2p, 1p, 2p, 5p (large), 10p (large), 50p (Large) and the commemorative Crown as well.
The 1986 Proof Set is one of the most important Proof Sets of it’s time. Four of the coins in this Proof Set were not struck for circulation! Those coins are the 5p, 10p, 20p and 50p. That means if you need any of these four coins for your collection, then you have to break up a Mint or Proof Set. It also contains the first-ever non-Gold £2 coin. It was issued for the Commonwealth Games which were held in Edinburgh. Each 1986 Proof Set contains £2, £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p, of which four coins were not struck for circulation. Offered here is the Deluxe Set which comes in a red leather case rather than the standard blue. The coins are the same, only the case changes. Over the years all Proof Sets will tone slightly, but we always give you the best set that we have in stock at the time of your order.
In 1996 the Royal Mint did something they had never done before. They issued a Proof Set of the then-current 1996 coins but, every coin was struck in Proof Sterling Silver. You have the 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p 50p and £1 all struck in Proof Sterling Silver. Here we present the 20p.
1996 was a very interesting year in recent British history: England hosted the European Football Championships (We can’t wait for that to happen again), Charles & Diana finally completed their divorce, Nelson Mandela visited the UK, and the Royal Mint did something they had never done before. They issued a Proof Set of the then-current 1996 coins but, every coin was struck in Proof Sterling Silver. You have the 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p 50p and £1 all struck in Proof Sterling Silver. The whole set comes in a purple plush presentation case with the certificate and is a rather handsome set. One of the marketing company’s is asking £450.00 for this Silver Proof Set. We think this is a fantastic set and, as such, it is much underappreciated. But maybe not if you pay what some of the marketing companies are asking you for it… A nice set sold at a great price!
