In 1950 the Royal Mint issued a Proof Set to celebrate the end of austerity. It was only the second Proof Set since the Coronation issue of 1937. The 1937 coins were struck in Silver and the 1950 coins were struck in base metal because, in 1947, all Silver was removed from our coins.

The 1950 Proof Set contains the Halfcrown, Florin, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, Sixpence, Brass Threepence (Rare), Penny (Rare), Halfpenny and Farthing. The set comes in a card case. The coins have toned over the past years, but we always give you the best set that we have in stock. If the card case it too worn, then we put the set in a Sandhill Case to protect it.

This set is Scarce and two of the coins are Rare
