1973 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. We have a few of the 1973 United Kingdom coin sets, produced by the Royal Mint.
From 1970 to 1981 proof sets were the only type of coin set issued by the Royal Mint.
In 1973, a commemorative design of fifty pence was produced to celebrate the entry of the United Kingdom into the European Economic Community, as it was then called. This coin was the first British decimal coin to omit the word "New" as in "New Pence".

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".

1973 Proof Sets Contain:

The Four 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.
