In this BU Pack you’ll find the five brand new commemorative coins alongside the eight definitive coins from the 1p to the £2, all newly dated for 2020.

Each one is protectively encapsulated in its attractive original Royal Mint packaging to preserve its quality for generations to come. What’s more, you can secure this BU Pack at the Royal Mint issue price of just £55 (+p&p). Click here to find out more >>

What truly sets the 2020 Specimen Year Set apart from all other 2020 Annual Sets is the fact that it is forever set in time by the official Royal Mail postmark that marks the coins’ first day of release – 1st January 2020.

Each coin is struck to the highly desirable Brilliant Uncirculated quality, and come individually presented in tamper-proof capsules.

    I would like the coins without the stamps is that possible

    A good collection but sadly you have missed the most important anniversary – the 80th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. This should hold a greater importance than Team GB, what have sports people actually done for the country?

    As a pensioner the price of the coins coujd be a little less expensive particularly in the price of postage
