Every year since 1970 the Royal Mint has released a limited number of annual sets with proof versions of the coins issued for circulation in that year. Today you can own the 1990 Royal Mint Annual Proof set.
In 1990 The Royal Mint changed the size of the 5p coin. This set features both the original, larger decimal 5p, and the new, smaller sized 5p. What's more, it features 3 coins which were never released into circulation - the 1990 larger sized 5p, the 1990 50p and the 1990 10p. This makes it the only way to own these coins, as you'll never be able to find them in your change.
The very best of the Royal Mint’s coins
Each coin is struck to the Royal Mint’s highest standard Proof finish, using specially prepared dies and highly polished blanks. Each coin can be appreciated in exquisite detail as every blank is struck more than once to ensure a clearer and finer design than the coins that you would find in your change.
Highly sought after by collectors
Because of the skill and time involved in striking proof coins they are struck to a strict limited edition. Proof sets represent the pinnacle of the Royal Mint’s craftsmanship, so they are in high demand amongst collectors.
Sold out at the Royal Mint
This set is no longer available at the Royal Mint and can be difficult to track down on the secondary market. We only have a limited number available to offer but with demand high, we don’t expect these sets to be available for long.
