The 2015 United Kingdom Silver Proof Piedfort Coin Set, Coin Set from United Kingdom - detailed information

The 2015 United Kingdom Silver Proof Piedfort Coin Set
Set NameThe 2015 United Kingdom Silver Proof Piedfort Coin Set

This sub-set of the standard proof set of the year contains the commemorative coins only, in Sterling Silver Piedfort (double the thickness and weight of the regular silver proofs).

It includes two commemorative £5 (crown) coins - the Churchill crown and the commemorative for the Battle of Waterloo. There are also two commemorative £2 coins, the Royal Navy and the Magna Carta.

The Battle of Britain 50 pence which is included with the set is arguably an error coin; it shows no value and denomination on either side. The Royal Mint did not admit that this is in error, however changed the designs for the coins issued into circulation later, and added "50 PENCE" to their obverse inscription.

All coins in this set have the Fourth Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley. Other sets were issued later in the year carrying the new, Fifth Portrait, by Jody Clark.

The set comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
