1979 UK Proof Annual 6 Coin Set

1979 Annual Set Proof Base Metal Boxed
Royal Mint 1979 proof annual set featuring definitive editions of the six UK coins issued in this year. You might remember 1979 for the election of Margaret Thatcher as the UK’s first woman prime minister and the release of Michael Jackson’s breakthrough album, Off the Wall. This set includes a Fifty Pence piece, a Ten Pence piece, a Five Pence piece, a Two Pence piece, a One Pence piece and a Halfpenny. These coins are all dated 1980 and feature Arnold Machin’s portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to the obverse. Each of the six coins are composed of the same base metal copper-nickel alloy used for contemporary circulating coinage. The difference is that these pieces are struck to finest proof standard with multiple strikes of hand finished dies. You’ll receive your 1979 annual set in its original pale turquoise card envelope with embossed silver lettering. The coins are enclosed within a protective clear plastic sleeve which means you can view both sides of each piece without unnecessary handling. It’s great for storage. You might find that some of the coinage in this set show evidence of toning. This is typical of these collectors pieces, more than four decades after they were issued.
