2008 'First of the New' Proof Coin Set - The Westminster Collection International

2008 'First of the New' Proof Coin Set

  • £70.00

The First Ever 'Royal Shield' Proof Coin Set

Available to just 90 collectors

Firsts are always important in collecting. That’s why this is such a significant opportunity.

2008 saw the first major change our everyday coinage since decimalisation, almost 40 years before. The result was Matthew Dent’s clever Royal Shield of Arms design that creates a jigsaw of the Royal Shield out of our everyday coinage.

Before they were released for circulation, the Royal Mint issued a strictly limited number of collector sets. They sold out very quickly but we have 90 sets of the new 2008 coins available in their original Royal Mint Proof Set.

All of the coins are struck to the highest Royal Mint Proof standards, and come complete with their original Royal Mint Presentation Box as well as the accompanying Royal Mint Certificate of Authenticity.
