Elizabeth II, Royal Mint Proof Set, 1987

7-coin set in original Royal Mint case

The 1987 Proof Set doesn’t look like much at first glance. There is the Pound coin that was issued with an English design plus the 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and the 1p.

Then you read the mintage figures for that year and you realise that the 10p and the 50p were not issued for circulation. That’s right, the two biggest coins were not struck for general usage. Therefore, if you collect coins by date, you will need to break a set up in order to obtain these two coins for your collection.

We think that the 1987 Proof Set is a much under appreciated set.
