1970 UK Annual Set Proof Pre Decimal

1970 Annual Set Proof Base Metal Pre Decimal Coinage Boxed
from
£29.00
The first modern Royal Mint proof set and the last pre-decimal UK coins. This annual set for the year 1970 features eight then-current base metal pre-decimal coins. In the following year, UK currency was formally decimalised and these denominations were gradually pulled from circulation. This set, therefore, represents a momentous moment in British numismatic history and is a great way to learn about old money. More importantly, none of these coins were struck for circulation so if you collect dates this is the only way to acquire 1970 issues. Included in this set is a Halfcrown, a Florin, an English Shilling, a Scottish Shilling, a Sixpence, a Threepence, a Penny and a Halfpenny, all dated 1970. A special rectangular medallion accompanies the set. These coins are struck in the same base metal alloys as their circulating counterparts. The difference is that these pieces are finished to proof standard, meaning they show a finer level of detail, achieved with multiple strike of hand-polished dies. This pre-decimal coinage set is offered in its original card envelope from The Royal Mint gold embossed lettering to the front. The coins themselves are presented in a double-sided clear plastic slab which allows you to appreciate both obverse and reverse without unnecessary handling. Please be aware that these sets sometimes show evidence of toning. This is typical for collectibles issued more than five decades ago.
