The James Bond 007 British Gold Coin Proof Set

British Gold Coin Proof Sets
For the patient collector, many of the coin sets we offer represent incredible bargains, as they are considerably below the original issue price.
Since 1979, the British Royal Mint has issued proof sovereigns, and from 1980 also issued 4 coin sets containing a Five Pound, Two Pound (double sovereign), and half sovereign. In some years, there was only a three-coin set issued, but in 1987, a "Special Agent" set was compiled.
The certificate number issued with this particular set, the only one we have owned so far, is 007, the serial number of the Ian Fleming's British Special Agent James Bond.

1979 to 1987 United Kingdom Gold Proof Collection
This remarkable collection was created by a North American distributor with the permission of the British Royal Mint, comprising the complete set of gold proof sovereigns, fractions and multiple sovereigns during this nine year period.
