The 1986 Proof Set is one of the most important Proof Sets of it’s time. Four of the
coins in this Proof Set were not struck for circulation! Those coins are the 5p, 10p,
20p and 50p. That means if you need any of these four coins for your collection, then
you have to break up a Mint or Proof Set. It also contains the first ever non Gold £2
coin. It was issued for the Commonwealth Games which were held in Edinburgh.
Each 1986 Proof Set contains: £2, £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p, of which four
coins were not struck for circulation. Offered here is the Deluxe Set which comes in a red leather case rather than the standard blue. The
coins are the same, only the case changes. Over the years all Proof Sets will tone
slightly, but we always give you the best set that we have in stock at the time of your
In 1984 the Royal Mint issued the last coins and the last Proof Sets with the Machin bust of
Queen Elizabeth II. In this Proof Set, there is a total of 5 (Five) coins not issued for circulation!!!
This 1984 Proof Set contains the £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p, 1p & 1/2p. Of these the 1/2p,
2p, 5p, 10p, 50p coins were not issued for circulation. If these were American coins, they
would sell for at least £100 each or £700-£1,000 for the group and that doesn’t include the
Proof coins that were issued for circulation.
We think this last Proof Set of the Machin bust is very exciting. Remember 5 coins in this
Proof Set were not issued for circulation.
