In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee, the 25th anniversary of her reign. The Royal Mint issued the second modern Proof Set for this Queen to contain a crown or 25 Pence Piece. Normally we charge £32.50 for this Proof Set with the crown. If you don’t think it is a bargain, look on the Royal Mint website and see how much they are charging for current Proof Sets!
In 1980 the Royal Mint issued its first Proof Set for some time with frosted coins. What we mean by frosted is, the field is Brilliant Proof and the bust, devices, and lettering are Matt Proof. This is almost like a Wedgwood effect. The public loved it with the new frosting. It is hard to believe but that was over 40 years ago 1980! You get the 50p, 10p, 5p, 2p, 1p, and 1/2p all in Frosted Proof, all in the original case of an issue with the original Royal Mint packaging. Of course, over the past 40 years, the coins will have toned a little, but we always send you the best set that we have in stock when your order arrives.
