The 1990 Gold Proof Britannia Collection 4-Coin Set
This set features 4 22-carat/0.916 fine gold coins polished to a proof finish and comes with its own presentation case and certificate of authenticity.
This year's set also contains a gold plated medallion with "Elizabeth R" and the date topped by a large crown, while the reverse design is a horse, the Chinese lunar calendar symbol of the year.
Gold bullion Britannia coins are the UK's most popular CGT exempt 1oz gold coin.Introduced by The Royal Mint in 1987, these British gold bullion coins have a face value of £100. Between 1987 - 2012, the coins were struck in 22 carat gold, from 2013 onwards, the coins have been struck in 24 carat gold. The coins all contain one troy ounce of gold, whether they are struck in 22 carat gold (0.917) or 24 carat gold (0.9999). We actually prefer the earlier dated coins as the quality of the striking is far superior to more recent issues.
From 1990, the mintage for the 4 coin gold proof sets has been very low. For the patient collector, many of the older sets which we offer represent a very good deal as they are at considerable savings when compared with purchasing the current year's set direct from the Royal Mint.
The obverse features Raphael Maklouf's portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II and is inscribed:
ELIZABETH II • DEI • GRATIA • REGINA • F • D • (denomination)
The reverse features Phllip Nathan's iconic design of a standing Lady Britannia holding her shield and trident.
