Royal Mint 1991 United Kingdom Brilliant Uncirculated Coin Collection: Featuring the defining coins of 1991

1991 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 1991, a year which saw; the first World Wide Web (www) website built at CERN by Tim Burners-Lee and contributors go online, the ending of the Cold War and the Gulf War, the dissolvement of the USSR, and Jaffa Cakes in a landmark battle with the UK government making us question - is it a biscuit or cake? Meanwhile, The Royal Mint removed the older and larger 5p from circulation and released this 1991 coin set highlighting a suite of coins representing UK unity. The Royal Mint also presents the 3rd Portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II, by sculptor Raphael Maklouf, FRSA on this 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 1991 from The Royal Mint. This 1991 collection is of particular significance due to the removal of the older and larger 5p from circulation in response to a demand for lighter, smaller coins. This 8-piece annual set, celebrates 1991 and hosts the 3rd Portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf, FRSA. 

The year 1991

1991 witnessed remarkable change including; the online launch of the first World Wide Web (www) website built at CERN by Tim Burners-Lee and contributors, the ending of the Cold War and the Gulf War, the dissolvement of the USSR, and Jaffa Cakes in a landmark battle with the UK government making us question - is it a biscuit or cake? On the music scene; Nirvana introduced us to the 'grunge' genre in the renowned album, Nevermind, and we saw the sad passing of Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury, leading to a chart-topping re-release of Bohemian Rhapsody, which raised funds for AIDS charities. This Royal Mint 1991 collection marks an extraordinary year for coinage and current affairs, and now you can purchase a piece of this historical year. 

BU Coins
