1998 UK Annual Set Proof Standard

D98 1998 UK Annual Set Proof Standard Reverses
from
£40.00
With a Winter Olympics and Football World Cup, as well as successful film releases such as Saving Private Ryan, 1998 was a memorable year. This 1998 annual proof set from The Royal Mint features several special commemorative coins and acts as a great reminder of the year for any collector. For the first time since 1984, a new portrait of Her Majesty the Queen was used on circulating coinage. Ian Rank-Broadley’s fourth effigy took over from Raphael Maklouf’s third one, and it would remain the default until 2015. The set contains ten coins, including a standard Twenty Pence, Ten Pence, Five Pence, Two Pence, and One Pence. It also includes a One Pound coin with the Royal Coat of Arms, drawing to an end the latest series of designs which had represented a different member of the four Home Nations yearly. In the centre of this set is a stunning Five Pound crown which celebrates the fiftieth birthday of Prince Charles and the work his Prince’s Trust has done. A pair of the new smaller Fifty Pence coins depict the traditional Britannia design, and a new commemorative design which celebrates the 25th anniversary of the UK’s membership of the European Union with an attractive star design by John Mills. These seven coins are struck to proof standard in the same alloys as regular, circulating coins. Proof coins are finished to a much higher standard, as they are struck with at least two separate blows from a hydraulic press leaving clearer designs and a smooth, shiny appearance. Presented in a red leather case, they are displayed between clear acrylic panels meaning both sides of the coins are visible without handling or damaging them. Some of the coins may have experienced toning, this is common for coins which were issued several years ago.
