1971 Proof Coin Sets
Each year since 1970, the Royal Mint has produced special editions of coin sets for collectors, which are also ideal as gifts.
1971 saw the changeover from the £sd system to a modern decimal currency system. We have a few of the 1971 United Kingdom coin sets, produced by the Royal Mint. These were the first ever British decimal proof coin sets.
From 1970 to 1981 proof sets were the only type of coin set issued by the Royal Mint.
Strangely enough, the fifty pence, although included in the proof set, was not issued for circulation in 1971. It had been introduced in 1969, ahead of decimalisation, and sufficient quantities had been produced dated 1969, and 1970, so that no more were needed in 1971.

Six Coin Proof Set
"Proof" coins are specially struck with great care and attention. The dies are highly polished on the flat surfaces, with a frosted finish on the design, the blanks from which the coins are struck are also polished before striking (minting), so that the finished coins show their designs to the absolutely best effect. The raised relief parts of the design have a frosted finish, and stand out from the background (field) which has a mirror finish. Each coin is carefully inspected prior to packaging, and is guaranteed to be perfect and without any blemish.
Please note that most proof sets of this year will have some degree of surface "toning" or "tarnish".

1971 Proof Sets Contain:
The six circulating coins, 50 new pence, 10 new pence, 5 new pence, 2 new pence, 1 new penny, and half new penny.
All attractively packaged in a specially designed plastic case.
