2004 Elizabeth II Gillick Portrait 13 Coin Set

2004 Elizabeth II Gillick Portrait 13 Coin Set Boxed
£850.00
Thirteen coin set from The Royal Mint celebrating Mary Gillick’s coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The sculptor Mary Gillick was the artist behind the first definitive portrait of Her Majesty the Queen to be used on her coinage. You can see this on UK money issued from her coronation year (1953) through to 1968 when it was replaced with a new effigy by Arnold Machin as well as on all the Queen’s Maundy money. Gillick’s portrait shows Elizabeth II wearing a laurel wreath and facing right and was selected from a field of seventeen in 1952. It was the last portrait of a monarch used on pre-decimal coinage. This set contains two gold coins: a 1957 Sovereign from the first year these coins were widely issued with the Gillick portrait and a Sovereign from the final year: 1968. Alongside the Sovereigns are the two commemorative Crowns struck with Gillick’s portrait: the 1960 New York Exhibition Crown and the 1965 Churchill Crown. These are contained in individual capsules. Inside a double sided clear plastic case you will find a set of UK coins representing the last time that each was issued with the first portrait: 1967 for most with the exception of the Farthing (last issued in 1956) and the English and Scottish Shillings (1966). 1,500 of these commemorative sets were assembled by The Royal Mint in 2004 using high-grade circulated coinage. They are offered in their original Mint-issue red leather case with a numbered certificate of authenticity included.
