2008 UK Royal Shield Of Arms Proof Set Boxed

Buy a 2008 Royal Shield Of Arms Proof Set

British seven coin proof set featuring the royal shield of arms definitive designs, introduced in 2008. The coins in this set share the emblems of England, Scotland and Ireland that feature in the centre of the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom. This particular shield of arms was adopted in 1952 on the accession of Her Majesty the Queen and is an instantly recognisable symbol of state and nation. The innovative design that appears on these coins was chosen via a public competition which received more than 4,000 entries. The winner was graphic designer, Matthew Dent, who looked towards heraldry and the idea of unity between the four countries of the UK for inspiration. The result is a design that pays tribute to coinage history but also introduces an element of fun with its jigsaw-like form. This set includes a 50p, 20p, 20p, 5p, 2p and 1p, bearing segments of the shield of arms design, as well as a £1 featuring the whole shield on the reverse. The obverse or ‘heads’ side of the seven coins shows Ian Rank-Broadley’s fourth definitive coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Just 20,000 royal arms proof sets were issued with base metal alloy coins in 2008. Your set will come in its original presentation case from The Royal Mint. This is leather bound and velvet lined. An information booklet that also doubles as a certificate of authenticity is enclosed. A great set that celebrates one of the great modern British coinage designs.
