1989 UK Scottish Brilliant Uncirculated Annual 7 Coin Set

1989 UK Uncirculated Coin Collection
Annually, The Royal Mint releases an uncirculated coin collection commemorating the coins of that year. This coin set celebrates 1989, a year that saw; the fall of the Berlin Wall, the introduction of the Nintendo Gameboy, and Princess Diana opening the Landmark Aids Centre and shaking hands with its patients. Meanwhile, The Royal Mint unveiled a new £1 coin, revived from Leslie Durbin's 1984 'Thistle' design to pay homage to Scotland. For the last 50 years, it has been tradition for Scotland to receive special recognition in coinage and this new design is faithful to this custom while also powerfully representing the rest of the UK in the new one-pound coin. The Royal Mint presents the 3rd Portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II, by sculptor Raphael Maklouf, FRSA on the 7-piece coin set's obverse. This Royal Mint collection marks an extraordinary year for coinage and current affairs. These Uncirculated coins are struck at a higher standard than circulating or bullions coins, although not as high value as Proof coins, making them ideal for a starter investment. As these coin sets mark a specific year in history, they are often also purchased to honour a special occasion or milestone such as a marriage, wedding anniversary or birthday.

This Nickel-Brass, Cupro-Nickel and Bronze Uncirculated coin set, was released to commemorate the coins of 1989 from The Royal Mint. This 1989 collection is of particular significance due to the introduction of the New One-Pound Coin paying tribute to Scotland as is tradition, bearing a thistle encircled by a Royal Diadem, while also acknowledging the UK as an entity. The one-pound coin would eventually replace the popularity of the pound note over several decades. This 7-piece annual set, celebrates 1989 and hosts the new 3rd Portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf, FRSA. 

The year 1989

1989 saw the fall of the Berlin Wall, which had divided East and West Germany, and marked the collapse of the Iron Curtain and communist Europe. It was also a memorable year for television with; BBC's Eastenders running a major storyline on the shooting of 'Dirty Den' and ITV broadcast the first episode of new soap, Home and Away. 1989 also witnessed; Princess Diana perform the opening ceremony for the Landmark Aids Centre in London shaking hands with AIDS victims, and Nintendo launching its first Gameboy. This Royal Mint 1989 collection marks an extraordinary year for coinage and current affairs, and now you can purchase a piece of this historical year.
