Each year since 1982 the British Royal Mint has produced sets of brilliant uncirculated coins, usually containing the eight circulating coins, from the two pounds to the penny, but sometimes an extra fifty pence or £2 if there were any commemorative versions issued that year. According to the Royal Mint, they only started producing the "Baby Gift Packs" in 1987. At first there were separate pink and blue versions, but from 1991, they switched to a single "unisex" version. The coins in the baby gift pack are specially examined and selected before packaging. They are all superior to the mass produced coins which are made for circulation because of the absence of bag marks and scratches. The mint coin sets often contain coins which were not issued for circulation in that year, so these are quite rare. Some collectors and dealers split mint coin sets to get the one or two denomination they want for that date. Because the baby gift packs get given as gifts to babies, we do not often get older sets from previous years, and when they do turn up on the secondary market, they are often lightly tatty for obvious reasons.
