1951 is only one of three years when proof sets were issued in the reign of George VI.
The set was issued to commemorate the Festival of Britain; celebrating all things British.
The proof sets that we have in stock are aFDC, however they will vary in price depending on the clouding and slight imperfections on each coin.
Photographs shown may not be the actual coin and may differ in terms of grade, die numbers, design flaws and other minor details. Contact us if you require a photograph prior to purchase.
Proof or specimen coin sets were only issued on special occasions such as coronations and jubilees. It was not until 1970 that they started to issue coin sets every year for sale to collectors.
