2012 Collector Proof Set

New for 2012, this contemporary collection is a unique gift or collectors item in its own right, and not to be missed by any devotee of minting excellence.

Struck to the highest quality finish by skilled craftsmen the new 2012 Collector Proof Set contains ten coins housed in an elegant display case. A brilliantly designed £5 celebrates The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and takes pride of place in the 2012 Collectors Proof Set. A commemorative £2 coin marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens, one of Britain’s great writers and the definitive coins complete the collection. All ten coins are struck in their circulating alloys to Proof quality. Each set also includes an informative booklet on the commemorative coins, and the events and themes they mark. This limited edition presentation is a lasting collection and a timeless keepsake to mark a memorable year.

The faithful likeness of The Queen on each obverse was created by the sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley who deliberately set out to create ‘a portrait which was clearly recognisable, not over idealised’.
