Elizabeth II, Silver Piedfort Pound Special, 1993
In 1993 the Royal Mint issued a Pound coin to celebrate the
10th anniversary of the Round Pound. It had exactly the
same reverse design as the 1983 issue, but the Queen’s portrait
was by a different engraver.
The Mint issued coins for circulation in a base metal and
for collectors a similar version but in Proof Sterling Silver.
For their VIP collectors they issued the coin in Piedfort or
double the normal thickness Proof Sterling Silver. It is that
VIP example that we now offer to you.
As the Round Pound is no more, that makes these Sterling
Silver Proofs even more desirable for collectors. After all the
series is finished now and you know what pieces you need to
complete your collection.
The 1993 Piedfort Silver Proof Round Pound is most
impressive and missing from many collections. It is best to
get one now while they are still available.
