Proof coins are amongst the finest commemorative coins produced by The Royal Mint. Made with the highest care and consideration, our Gold Proof coins feature a sharpness of detail like no other. The dies used to strike Proof coins are hand-finished to ensure that all imperfections are removed.

Blanks are fed into the coin press by hand before being struck up to six times, at a lower speed and with less pressure than other finishes, to preserve the finer details of the design. The Royal Mint strikes coins to di? Erent standards; these include Proof, Brilliant Uncirculated, Bullion and Piedfort. If you've heard these terms being used but are unsure what they mean, read on to? Nd out more about the di?

Gold Proof coins are amongst the finest commemorative coins produced by The Royal Mint. From 1985 to 1997, UK circulating coins featured a royal portrait by the sculptor Raphael Maklouf. The portrait was couped and showed The Queen wearing the royal diadem, which she normally wears on her way to and from the State Opening of Parliament. Unlike the earlier portraits, Maklouf's version also shows The Queen wearing a necklace and earrings.

Critics accused him of sculpting The Queen "flatteringly young" but Maklouf responded by pointing out that his intention had been to create a symbol, regal and ageless. If you look closely you can see the artist's initials,'RDM', at the bottom of The Queen's neck. Maklouf included his middle initial, D for David, to make sure that his initials wouldn't be seen as a reference to The Royal Mint.

Please feel free to message me with any questions or concerns. I will consider any offer.
