When Great Britain moved to decimal coinage in the early 1970’s, collectors all over the country asked for final set of the old coins. The government responded with a last year presentation collection which included the famous sixpence coin discontinued after 416 years .

These perfect proof grade coins are the finest quality available and are prized worldwide by collectors. These last year 1970 sixpences were only available in this special presentation set. The entire mintage was only in the thousands for a country with a population of 55 million. Needless to say these historic sets were an instant sell out 50 years ago.

We were fortunate to find a collector in England with a few of these perfect 1970 sixpences from this scarce set. Shipped in a presentation box with a classic portrait of the young Queen Elizabeth, each coin is in a special airtight numismatic coin holder to protect their beauty forever. Put your sixpence back in the holder following the wedding to preserve its beauty for the next generation’s perfect wedding. We only have 8 coins available.
