In 1937 our new King was crowned, he was of course King George VI. It was the first and last silver Proof Set to be issued for this monarch. World War II came in and there were just other uses for the metals rather than Proof Sets. But what a Proof Set this Coronation set is.
You start off with the 4 piece Maundy Set, then you add a Silver Proof Crown, Silver Proof Halfcrown, Silver Proof Florin, the first ever Silver Proof English Shilling, the first ever Silver Proof Scottish Shilling, a Silver Proof Sixpence plus a Silver Proof threepence. Then you add a Brass Threepence, the first year of issue of this coin and in Proof, plus the Penny, Halfpenny and Farthing the first year of the Wren Farthing.
Over all, you have 15 different coins in this Coronation Proof Set including three, yes 3, Threepences.
The set comes in the red leather case of issue, today they use leather look material, but in 1937 they used real leather. All the silver coins are in brilliant Proof condition.
Supplies are very limited and if you have been waiting, wait no longer, it just might cost you money…
