2008 Emblems Of Britain And Royal Shield Of Arms Platinum Proof 14-Coin Set

2008 Emblems Of Britain And Royal Shield Of Arms Platinum Proof 14-Coin Set
Highly-collectable 2008 14-coin platinum proof set from The Royal Mint: one of just 250 issued worldwide. In this year the UK’s national mint updated the designs used on all circulating coins, introducing the distinctive, interconnected shield of arms motif created by graphic designer Matthew Dent. His jig-saw like designs are featured on seven of the 2008-dated coins in this set while the other seven show the historic designs, introduced during Decimalisation. The original decimal reverse designs can still be found in our change and take inspiration from royal heraldry and national emblems like Britannia (the 50p) and the the Tudor Rose (20p). These are reproduced here for the final time on a comprehensive set of 999.5 platinum coins. The obverses of all the coins show Ian Rank-Broadley’s fourth definitive coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In total this pre-owned set offers just under 200 grams of 99.95% fine platinum across fourteen coins, all of which are struck to proof standard. They’re presented in the original Royal Mint box of issue with detailed information booklets and numbered certificates of authenticity enclosed. This is an unusual set, seldom seen.
