Like the gold sovereign sets of 1986 and 1994, the 1995 set includes a special commemorative issue of £2 coin, produced to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the ending of World War II, having as its reverse design, a dove in flight carrying an olive branch.
When the Royal Mint started regularly to produce gold coins sets in 1980, they set an issue limit of 10,000 sets, and managed to sell every set. Since then the annual mintage figures have generally declined. 1995 saw the lowest mintage figure of all the recent sets, with only 718 sets issued. Millennium year 2000 for example saw the issue limit of 1,250 sets sell out quite quickly. Because less were issued during 1995, we believe it will continue to be one of the most difficult sets to acquire well into the future. The 1995 gold proof set features the third portrait of the Queen, as used from 1985 to 1997 inclusive on most British coins. The issue quantity was less than an eighth of the 1985 issue. The issue limit placed on the 1995 set was 1,250 and only 718 were issued. There were 5,849 of the 1985 sets issued.
In 1990, the four coin gold proof set packaging was re-designed, and changed to a red leather box, and for the first time, a gold-plated medallion was including, with a crowned "Elizabeth R" above the date. The medallion included in the 1995 sets has a pig on the reverse to mark the Chinese lunar year of the pig.
The portrait of Elizabeth II on the obverse of this coin was created by Raphael Maklouf. The coin features the legend ELIZABETH II DEI·GRA·REG·F·D.
Benedetto Pistrucci first designed the engraving of St George and the dragon in 1817. It is featured on the reverse of the half sovereign, sovereign and £5 coin in this set with the £2 coin featuring a design by John Mills, depicting a dove as the symbol of peace to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
