King George VI passed away in 1952. In that year only four different coins had been struck for circulation in Britain. The year before however had seen the Festival of Britain held in London and, as part of the Royal Mint’s exhibition, it had produced a set of all the coins of 1951 and struck them to Proof standards of quality – the King George VI Proof Quality Coin Set 1951. It issued these sets in card boxes but as the sets left the coins open to the air, the coins often exhibit some signs of ageing.

This is a very important set to own – it is the last complete set of Proof quality coins of this monarch’s reign. It also includes the Festival of Britain crown, one of just two crown coins minted in this king’s reign.
