In 2000 to celebrate the Millennium, the Royal Mint issued the regular coins in your pocket in Proof Sterling Silver. Someone broke up some of these sets and we bought what was left. Because collectors are always looking for a Silver example of the coins they collect. You get the 1p, 2p, 5p 10p and 20p of 2000 all struck in Proof Sterling Silver. Each coin comes in a protective capsule as issued in the set. We would usually charge much more if I sold them as individual coins, but let’s make it a Special Price to make everyone happy. You get all five (5) Sterling Silver Proofs for just £98.50 which is less than £20 a coin. Look what the Royal Mint is charging for similar single coins today. Supplies are limited
In 2008 the Royal Mint changed the reverse designs on our coinage. In a package all the coins together they make a most interesting shield design. Singly they look like mis-struck coins. When they first came out we had loads of people coming in and saying that their coins were struck off center… The Mint issued Silver Proof Sets with either or both designs. Here we present the New Design Set with the 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p and £1. It comes in a plastic display case with all coins of either type, struck in Proof Sterling Silver.

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!
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.
In 1986 the Royal Mint, for the first time, issued a commemorative £2 piece and it was the first non-Gold £2 piece to ever be struck. This coin was issued for the Commonwealth Games which were held that year in Edinburgh. The Proof Set of 1986 also contains the £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p. Very Important: the 1986 5p, 10p, 20p and 50p were not issued for circulation.
