2008 PIEDFORT ROYAL SHIELD OF ARMS SILVER PROOF 7 COIN SET
In 2008 the Royal Mint have struck a Limited Issue Piedfort solid Sterling Silver Proof Collection of the new designs for the coinage of the United Kingdom giving collectors the opportunity to own a piece of numismatic history.
Familiar designs that have served us well for almost 40 years will be replaced by a new set of designs, contemporary in treatment yet grounded in the traditions of the coinage. Now, in a new age, the time has come to rejuvenate the coinage by seeking designs that treat traditional symbols in an innovative and modern way. The series that has been chosen brings new life to the coinage and, like the decimal designs 40 years ago, draws inspiration from the very fabric of British history.
The obverse of all the coins designed by Ian Rank Broadley is the stunning portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
Piedforts are coins which have been specially struck on thicker than normal blanks. As their name suggests they are closely associated with France, where from the twelfth century they were apparently issued by the Kings as presentation pieces. In Britain the practise of striking piedforts is later and less frequent, but medieval and Tudor examples are known.
These legal tender coins have been struck to proof quality using specially prepared dies and highly polished blanks.
