In 1981, the Royal Mint issued an unusual proof coin set which contained a gold five pounds coin, gold full sovereign, the silver proof crown commemorating the Royal Wedding of Prince Charles to Princess Diana, and six minor coins. The previous occasion on which a British proof set was issued with a mixture of gold and base metal coins was in 1911 for the Coronation of King George V.
