Silver Proof Coin Sets
In the Royal Mint issued a proof coin set in silver to commemorate the silver jubilee (25th anniversary) of decimalisation in 1971. This was the first British silver proof set issued since 1937, and the 1935 and 1937 sets were only made in .500 fine silver. Before this, the previous set issued in sterling silver was in 1911.
For the millennium in 2000, the Royal Mint obviously decided it could market a special set, and did so with a thirteen coin collection.
Again in 2006, another 13 coin collection was issued on the occasion or pretext of the Queen's 80th birthday.
Although these sets are quite expensive, they do have a secondary market, and we are happy to both buy them, and offer them for sale.

Other UK Silver Proof Sets
The Royal Mint also markets sets with a number of silver proof coins, for example pairs of tenpences, fifty pences, and fivepences when their sizes changed, and two pounds in pairs for 1989, and a set of 4 in 2002 for the Commonwealth Games.
All these sets are listed under their respective denominations.
The other type of silver set the Royal Mint has also taken to marketing includes "Family Silver Collections" which consist of whichever silver proof coins were issued that year, and piedfort versions of the same.
These tend to be bought as gift items rather than by collectors.
We have not linked these from this page, but will probably give them their own index page at some time in the future.
