Buying Gold Proof Britannia Sets
The gold Britannia range was officially released by The Royal Mint in 1987, with the silver edition following in 1997 and the first platinum version appearing in 2007. Although primarily a vehicle for gold bullion investment, the gold Britannia has also been struck to proof standard for the collector's market. Every year, the Britannia is released in proof sets, with the composition and style of the coins varying from year to year. Initially, they were struck using 22 carat (0.9167 fine) gold, but switched over to 0.9999 fine (24 carat) in 2013. From 1987 to 1989, the coins were alloyed with copper, giving them an attractive rose gold hue, and between 1990 and 2012 they were alloyed with silver, giving a brilliant yellow gold appearance. Some of these older sets have low mintages and can be purchased at competitive prices compared to more recent issues. Nowadays, the trend from the Mint is to keep the design on the bullion coins constant, with the proof editions featuring a unique reverse every year, enhancing the appeal the proof coins have to collectors.
