All 3 Types of Silver Proof Round Pounds. Since the round pound was first issued in 1983 there have been 3 different busts of H.M. the Queen: The Machin bust (1983-4), the so called Maklouf bust (1985-97) and the Rank-Broadley bust (1998-2014).
I have taken one of each type in gleaming Sterling Silver Proof, put them in a protective holder and then put all 3 holders in a handsome display case. That way you can see all three busts at the same time. Some of the types are not easy to get, so I think our price for this three piece type set of just £125 is quite reasonable, but supplies are very limited. They are not easy to find.
This would make a wonderful gift for someone, especially if they are too young to remember the Round Pound. The three Sterling Silver Proof Pounds in a handsome display case just £125.00. All 3 portraits of the Queen.
In 1994 the Royal Mint issued what is known as the Bank of England Proof Set, because it has a commemorative £2 to honour the 300th Anniversary of
the Bank of England. It is, in our opinion, one of the nicest of the commemorative two pound coins, it shows Britannia with the dates 1694-1994.
You also get the 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, D-Day 50p, £1 and Bank of England £2 coins all in Proof. A little note, the 10p was not struck for circulation, so the
only way to get one is in the Mint Set or Proof Set of 1994. We are offering the Deluxe version.
1990 Large & Small 5 Pence Set Silver Proofs. In 1990 the Royal Mint reduced the size of our 5 Pence. To commemorate this historic reduction in the size of our coin, the Royal Mint issued a Special collector’s set of the old large sized coin and the new smaller sized coin. But this set was only struck in Proof Sterling Silver, which makes it very important today.
We have just purchased a small holding of the large and small Sterling Silver 5 Pence Sets. Each set is in the original Royal Mint case as issued. This set is missing from many collections and I think that you will find it most interesting.
In 1990 the Royal Mint reduced the size of the Five Pence piece, to the size we use today.
The 1990 Proof Set is rather Special, as it contains both sizes of the Five Pence, both large
and small. The large sized Five Pence was not struck for circulation.
In fact this Proof Set contains three coins that were not issued for circulation, the large
sized 5p, the 10p and the 50p. So this is a very important set and one that many collectors are
You get the £1, 50p (not issued for circulation), 20p, 10p (not issued for circulation), Large
