2017 United Kingdom 5 Pound Silver A Portrait Of Britain Proof Set
A Tour of Britain in the Palm of Your Hand!
For centuries, the dominance and prominence of the British Empire was summed up in the common expression, “The sun never sets on the British Empire.” While the Empire’s power has waned, it continues to enjoy tremendous influence. Its rich history, ancient landmarks, and refined culture continue to draw tens of millions of visitors every year. Many of them visit the country’s historic landmarks, many of which are instantly recognizable throughout the world. Four of those landmarks are represented in this stunning collection.
- ARTISTIC RENDERINGS OF HISTORIC SITES– Each of the coins in this set bears an image of one of the most famous landmarks in Great Britain. The subtle use of pastels combines artistry with the history. The mint employed trichromatic color printing to bring the images to life. Each sit is shown shown from a low vantage point, as a visitor might see them at their approach.
- STUNNING STERLING SILVER PROOF– Each coin was struck from .925 sterling silver and was specially manufactured with polished dies on selective planchets.
- A LIMITED MINTAGE – The Royal Mint issued only 1,500 of these sets, making this opportunity to add the set to your collection quite rare.
If you ask a hundred people about their bucket list, you’d find travel near the top of over ninety of them, and one of the top world travel destinations is the United Kingdom. The coins in this set bear images of four of the top attractions in that country, making them special to those who have traveled to the island and those who continue to dream of doing so alike. With just 1,500 sets issued, though, the number of collectors who would love these coins far exceeds the number who will be able to get them. Don’t wait to order your 2017 A Portrait of Britain Proof Set because, much like many people’s life goals, the opportunity to get them may pass.
