Royal Mint 1992 United Kingdom Brilliant Uncirculated Coin Collection: Featuring the defining coins of 1992 including the new smaller 10p and a commemorative 50p to celebrate the UK’s entry to the European Union (EU)
This Nickel-Brass, Cupro-Nickel and Bronze Uncirculated coin set, was released to commemorate the coins of 1992 from The Royal Mint. This 1992 collection is of particular significance due to the introduction of a reduced size 10p in response to a demand for lighter, smaller coins. A special commemorative 50p also marks the occasion of the UK's signing of the EU Maastricht Treaty. This 8-piece annual set, celebrates 1992 and hosts the 3rd Portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf, FRSA.
The year 1992
Beyond the walls of The Royal Mint, 1992, was known as the Queen's 'annus horribilis' year for the Royal Family and included; the separation of heir to throne, Prince Charles from his wife Princess Diana, the exposure of Princes Charles' affair with Camilla Parker-Boules in Princess Diana's confessional book, the suicide of the Queen's nephew, the separation of the Duke and Duchess of York, the Princess Royal's divorce from Captain Mark Phillips, and a major fire at Windsor Castle. However, 1992, was also a significant year outside of the Royal Family; the EU formed on the signing of the Maastricht Treaty, John Major became Prime Minister, and Bill Clinton was elected as US President. In the entertainment world, the film industry boomed with the release of Disney's Aladdin and Sister Act, Whitney Houston released power ballad, I Will Always Love You, and EuroDisney opened in Paris.This Royal Mint 1992 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 1992 annual set features all 8 coins, which were in circulation during the course of a very special year.
