2005 UK Brilliant Uncirculated Annual 10 Coin Set

2005 UK Brilliant Uncirculated Annual 10 Coin Set In Packaging
from
£19.98
Annually, The Royal Mint releases an uncirculated coin collection commemorating the coins of that year. The year of this coin set, 2005, saw; the largest concert since Live Aid in the Millennium Stadium raising £1.25m for tsunami victims, Tony Blair become the longest-serving Labour Prime Minister, the first black Archbishop is elected in York, Ellen McArthur attaining the 'solo around the world sailing' record, Clarence House announcing the Prince of Wales' marriage to Camilla Parker-Boules, the fox hunting ban is enforced, the New Forest becomes England's 12th National Park, and Doctor Who is revived for the first time since 1989. 2005 was as much a celebration as a sombre occasion. On 6th July, London was chosen to host the 2012 Olympic Games and the very next day, tragedy struck in a terrorist attack, which shook the capital. An extraordinary and poignant year in history to be immortalised in coinage. 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.
