Royal Mint 1984 United Kingdom Uncirculated Coin Collection: Featuring the defining coins of 1984 including the first Scottish £1 coin Collection: Featuring the defining coins of 1984 including the first Scottish £1 coin
This Nickel-Brass, Cupro-Nickel and Bronze Uncirculated coin set, was released to commemorate the coins of 1984 from The Royal Mint. The 1984 collection is of particular significance due to the introduction of the Scottish £1 coin depicting the 'Thistle' emblem with the edge inscription, Nemo Me Impune Lacessit ('No-one provokes me with impunity'). This design is the second release after 1983’s original pound with future designs planned for England, Northern Ireland and Wales. The pound coin would eventually replace the popularity of the pound note over several decades. The 8-piece annual set celebrating 1984 hosts the 2nd Portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin RA, and a modified version of his portrait has appeared on stamps since 1967.
