1986 UK Annual Set Brilliant Uncirculated

1986 Uncirculated Coin Set
from
£12.99
Annually, The Royal Mint releases an uncirculated coin collection commemorating the coins of that year. This coin set celebrates 1986, a year that witnessed Labyrinth, David Bowie's fantasy film, Neighbours and Casualty hit our screens, and the Internet Mail Access Protocol (IMAP) enabled Email. However, it was also a more somber and significant year with events including; The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station Disaster, the explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger and the taking of BSE (Mad Cow Disease) in the UK. In the minting world, the next in the UK one-pound coin series saw the creation of the Northern Ireland £1 coin in a “Flax and Royal Diadem” design by Leslie Durbin, and the release of a Commonwealth Games celebratory £2 coin designed by Norman Sillman. The Royal Mint presents the 3rd Portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II, by sculptor Raphael Maklouf, FRSA on the 8-piece coin set's obverse.

This Nickel-Brass, Cupro-Nickel and Bronze Uncirculated coin set, was released to commemorate the coins of 1986 from The Royal Mint. The collection is of particular significance due to the introduction of the Northern Ireland £1 coin depicting the 'Flax' emblem with the edge inscription, Decus Et Tutamen (An ornament and a safeguard). This design is the fourth release after 1983's original pound, 1984's Scottish pound and 1985's Welsh pound, with a future design planned to represent England. The one-pound coin would eventually replace the popularity of the pound note over several decades. 

 

This collectible set includes a very special £2 coin to commemorate the 13th Commonwealth Games 1986 in a design by Normal Sillman. As the games were held in Edinburgh, the design consists of a thistle encircled by a laurel wreath laid on a St Andrew's Cross. 

 

To celebrate 1986, the set hosts the new 3rd Portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf, FRSA, replacing the 2nd portrait by Arnold Machin, RA, FRSA. 

 

1986 saw the first UK shopping mall in Gateshead, a Royal Family wedding, Labyrinth, David Bowie's fantasy film hit the Box Office, Neighbours and Casualty hit our screens, and launch of the Internet Mail Access Protocol (IMAP) enabled Email. This Royal Mint 1986 collection marks an extraordinary year for coinage and current affairs, and now you can purchase a piece of this historical year. 

 

Struck at a higher standard than circulating or bullions coins and handled carefully to avoid any damage, Brilliant Uncirculated coins, although not as high value as Proof coins, are ideal for an entry-level collector or to mark an important milestone. This 1986 annual set features all 8 coins, which were in circulation during the course of a very special year.
