This Britannia gold proof four coin set features a new design by Suzie Zamit. The four coins are issued in troy weights of 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz and 1/10oz.
For the patient collector, many of the older sets which we offer represent a very good deal as they are at considerable savings compared with purchasing the current year's set direct from The Royal Mint. Britannia proof sets have been issued every year since 1987.
The gold proof Britannia gold sets are usually released each year in August or later, however in 2010 we received ours in April.
