Coins have been made using silver for more than 2,500 years. Early Greek and Romain coins were frequently struck in silver and pennies made from sterling silver were first produced by Anglo-Saxons in Britain. This durable, beautiful shining metal has retained its value and importance and remains highly esteemed by coin collectors, numismatists and minters alike. The Royal Mint use various types of silver for their coins, including .925 sterling silver and fine silver and their sets tend to include a mix of silver proofs and silver Piedfort coins.
Silver proof coins feature a range of numismatic designs, each one commemorating important anniversaries and themes. From celebrating Royal Birthdays to marking important anniversaries such as 100 years since the Armistice of 1918 , silver proofs are issued to pay tribute to particular people or events and mark historic moments in time.
Proof coin values have sky-rocketed over the years and silver proof coins and coin sets have become greatly sought after by private collectors.
