Silver Proof Issues


These can be distinguished from the cupronickel version by the colour - silver is a much whiter metal than cupronickel.

20p values extracted from Coin News September 2016

Platinum, Gold and Silver proofs are generally issued in a presentation case with the coins in protective capsules. Cupronickel proofs are generally only available in the year sets, but of course there is nothing to stop someone removing them from the case.

Circulation coins from Royal Mint Year Sets are generally not only in better condition than issued coins, but are slightly better struck. It is hard to distinguish them except that there is a lack of any contact marks, and sometimes they are a bit shinier.
