1993 Gold Proof Four Coin Britannia Set

1993 Gold Proof Four Coin Britannia Set Boxed
from
£3,500.00
(VAT Exempt)
The Royal Mint issued 462 four-coin gold proof Britannia sets in 1993, which is below the official issue limit of 500 sets. Compared to other years, the 1993 sets have a low mintage. In the limited edition box set, the Britannia coins are available in a 1oz, a 1/2oz, a 1/4oz and a 1/10oz size, struck numerous times using highly polished dies to give an aesthetically pleasing proof finish. Unlike more recent editions of the gold Britannia, the metal used for the coins is 22 carat gold, alloyed with silver, giving them a brilliant yellow gold appearance. The reverse shows Philip Nathan's classic 'standing Britannia' design, alongside the composition and date. On the obverse, Raphael Maklouf's engraving of Queen Elizabeth II is visible. It's the third British coin portrait of the late monarch, which was used on UK coinage from 1985 to 1997. The fine gold weight for all the coins combined is 1.85 troy ounces, with a total weight of 62.77 grams. Alongside the coins is a gold-plated medallion with the inscription 'Elizabeth R' and the date and crown on the front. On the other side of this medallion is a cockerel, signifying the Chinese lunar calendar symbol for 1993. These collectable coins are offered in their original black square presentation case with protective capsules and a numbered certificate of authenticity. Exempt for capital gains tax and VAT for UK residents, with the added bonus of free UK delivery with The Britannia Coin Company.

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.
