|The Very Latest Coin Sets...|
|2006 British Royal Mint Coin Sets|
Update, as at June 2007
With additional notes.
We recently acquired a moderate "job-lot" of these sets, and re-appraised both our stock, and the sets themselves. We also created a new index page for similar sets of circulation type coinage issued in silver proof sets.
Comparing the issue limits of the three dates of silver proof sets issued to date, this 2006 has a relatively low figure of 8,000 sets, compared with 15,000 each for the previous two sets.
The 2000 set has been in good demand recently, having sold quite slowly originally, and we feel that in a few years time, the 2006 set will be in short supply.
The Queen's Eightieth Birthday
According to the Royal Mint:
The Queen's 80th Birthday Collection: A Celebration In SilverThirteen Coin Proof Sets
Royal Mint Official Issue Price £275.00
A Complete Set of United Kingdom Coins - including the Rare Maundy Coins
All in Silver Proof Quality - A Numismatic Sensation
If any coins can be described as personal to the Queen herself, it must be the Maundy coins that she herself distributes on Maundy Thursday. We asked that a small number - struck in silver Proof quality - be made available for our collectors especially to celebrate the Queen's eightieth birthday and the Queen kindly gave her consent.
They make a rare celebratory set for a rare occasion for, in Proof quality, they take pride of place alongside the Silver Proof Queen's 80th Birthday Crown and, also struck in sterling .925 silver - for only the second time in the Queen's long reign - all eight circulating coins of the realm.
- Coins of the Royal Maundy
- The Queen's Birthday Crown
- The eight coins of the realm
- All struck in sterling silver to exacting Proof quality
- In a plush black leather presentation case
- With colourful booklet and Certificate of Authenticity
- Only 8,000 Collections have been authorised - 1000 for each decade of the Queen's life.
