The Last of the "New"!
The 1981 coins were the last of the decimal coins to include the word "new". From 1982 the word "new" was omitted.

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 1981 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.

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".

1981 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.
