British Gold Coin Proof Sets

Roya Mint Buy Back

The Royal Mint recently offered to buy back a number of these sets at £1,345 each. We believe that only 789 were sold and issued in 1998 out of the issue limit of 1,500 sets. We saw another of these sets offered on eBay whose seller inferred that there were now only 75 of these sets in existence. While we would like to believe this, we doubt it is accurate, as we have three in our current stock, and doubt that the Mint bought back more than a handful of sets. when we phoned the Mint buying contact, she was not able to say how many or few they had bought back.
As we strive for total integrity, we prefer not to make any exaggerated claims, and we believe there are probably around 700 of these sets in existence.
