Highly collectable four-coin gold proof 2002 Britannia set from The Royal Mint. Three different gold proof Britannia products were released by the UK's national mint in this year: a four-coin set, an individual 1/4oz proof Britannia and a 1/10oz proof Britannia. On offer here is a pre-owned four-coin set, containing a 2002 1oz Britannia, a 1/2oz Britannia, a 1/4oz Britannia and a 1/10oz Britannia, all struck in 22 carat (91.67% fine) gold. A total of 945 sets were issued by the Mint in this edition and they represent the only way to acquire proof editions of the 2002 one ounce and 2002 half ounce Britannias in their original presentation. The four coins in this set all feature Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. This is the fourth UK coin portrait of Her Majesty. Complementing this on the reverse is Philip Nathan's classic 'standing Britannia' design, alongside the composition and date. In total, the actual gold weight of the four coins in this 1998 set is 57.75 grams or 1.8567 troy ounces. Each of these Britannias are struck to The Royal Mint's strict specifications with a fine proof finish. Proof coins are intended for collectors, struck multiple times with hand prepared dies for a high-shine appearance, rich in detail. This pre-owned Britannia set is in pristine condition and would make an excellent addition to your collection of British proof coins. It's offered in its box of issue with a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed. VAT and CGT exempt, with free UK delivery included in our price.

Collecting 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.
