We believe that the 1970 Proof Set is the greatest Proof Set that the Royal Mint issued in the 20th Century. In 1970, pre-decimal coins were still being used, it would be another year until the New Decimal coins came into use.
The Royal Mint decided to issue all the then-current, pre-decimal coins in one final pre-decimal Proof Set. The set contains the Halfcrown, Florin, English Shilling, Scottish Shilling, and Sixpence, brass Threepence, Penny and Halfpenny.
Most importantly, if you are a date collector, none of these 1970 coins were ever struck for circulation. That means you get 8 coins that were never struck for circulation in just one Proof Set. If this were an American Proof Set then it would cost about £1,000.
If you break it up, the individual coins will cost you a heck of a lot more than our Proof Set price.
Each set comes in a sealed plastic case inside an imprinted paper wrapper. Over the past years, the coins will have toned slightly, but we always send you the best set that we have in stock, when your order arrives.

Picture of Elizabeth II, 1/10 Britannia Silver 2006

Elizabeth II, 1/10 Britannia Silver 2006

The Britannia silver series is usually only available in Proof condition, except for the one-ounce silver. But in 2006 the Royal Mint issued the 1/10th Silver Britannia in Uncirculated condition. As far as we know, this is the only year that they issued this coin in Uncirculated condition. So it is a Very Important type coin. This is a special coin. First, because it was only issued for one year and secondly and most importantly because we can sell it for such a cheap price. Each coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and struck in Sterling Silver, they only ever issued this coin in Uncirculated for one year. So it is a Very Important type coin. You can have this 1/10th Britannia only issued in 2006 for just £8.95. At this price, it really is a Special Offer!

World War I Penny Collection 1914-1918

One of our competitors is offering a set of World War I Pennies 1914-1918. Yes, their set comes in a smart case, but they are charging £79.50 for the collection... Also, the coins they illustrated were cleaned, they probably think that improves their appearance, but it actually depreciates their worth. Our coins are average circulated just as theirs are, but ours are natural, we have not cleaned them. We do not supply a case, on the other hand, our set is priced at £10.00 and theirs is priced at £79.50. We will not name the other company, we don't want to shame them any more than their price of £79.50 shames them already...
