2008 Royal Emblems Silver Proof UK Coin Set - 7 Coins
The Emblems of Britain coin collection from the Royal Mint marks the final appearance of the Emblems of Britain on definitive UK coins. This is the ideal gift for coin collectors as it is the perfect memento of this historic time in numismatic history.
This beautiful silver proof coin set contains all seven definitive UK coins; £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p. All of the coins are struck to a proof finish from 0.925 sterling silver. The coins are encased within a black presentation box, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from The Royal Mint.
The silver £1 coin in this set features the Royal Coat of Arms design by Eric Sewell. This was used on the modern £1 coins from their introduction in 1983 until 2008. The design was replaced by the Royal Arms by Matthew Dent.
Only 10,000 of these sets were issued.
In 2008 The Royal Mint changed the reverse design of circulating coins from the Emblems of Britain to a new style, named the Royal Shield of Arms. Designed by Matthew Dent, the seven coins form a puzzle, which when placed together correctly, make up the Royal Shield of Arms.
The obverse of the coins was designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. This is the fourth coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
