This is the last United Kingdom proof mint set featuring the - then new - decimal Pound Sterling currency with only six circulating denominations. The next year, the first 20p coins were issued. This is also the last year when there was a proof set only; the Royal Mint started issuing Brilliant Uncirculated sets in 1982.
The set also includes a 1981-dated oblong Royal Mint token.
