This Nickel-Brass, Cupro-Nickel and Bronze Uncirculated coin set, was released to commemorate the coins of 1993 from The Royal Mint. This 1993 collection is of particular significance due to celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the £1 coin and its five designers. A special commemorative 50p also marks the occasion of the UK's completion of the EU Maastricht Treaty and entering the European Single Market. This 8-piece annual set, celebrates 1993 and hosts the 3rd Portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf, FRSA.
The year 1993
Beyond the walls of The Royal Mint, 1993 saw; Buckingham Palace open to the public for the first time to help pay for the restoration of Windsor Castle, the first Jurassic Park movie broke Box Office records, Teletext replaced the former ORACLE service on our TVs, women joined the Royal Navy, the UK's oldest living person, Charlotte Hughes, died at 115 years old, and the Czech Republic was formed. This Royal Mint 1993 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 1993 annual set features all 8 coins, which were in circulation during the course of a very special year.
We are always proud to show off our previous customers experiences with you and what they thought of our purchasing through with Britannia Coins.
