United Kingdom / UK 1980 Gold Proof Set - photo

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.
