UK 1980 Gold Proof Set
Set NameUK 1980 Gold Proof Set

This is the first United Kingdom gold proof set of the decimal Pound Sterling currency. It features four different Sovereign denominations. The coins are identical in appearance and - by tradition followed since the pre-decimal sovereign was introduced in 1817 - do not display their value. They are only distinguished by their mass (weight) which is directly proportional to the value.

The set comes with a booklet / Certificate of Authenticity and is bound in a green leather case.
