A sell-out in 2012, this prestigious set is limited to just 4,000 in 2013. It contains most of the major UK coins of 2013 and the Premium Medal which can only be acquired as part of this set. Plus, for the first time ever, you’ll receive a Limited-Edition Print of the Commemorative coins.
The 2013 Premium Medal
The 2013 medal focuses on the Celtic whorls at the heart of the definitive £2 coin reverse, its obverse design exploring the revolutionary minting techniques developed in 1996 to create a latent image as a coin security device and safeguard against counterfeiting. The intricate obverse design replicates the latent image at the centre and, like that on the actual coin, changes when viewed in a different light or at a different angle. The spiralling circular inscription was inspired by the computer language devised to ‘write’ the security details into the original coin design.
