The 2016 United Kingdom Premium Proof Coin Set

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else outraged by the huge price hike of these annual sets.

These used to be called the executive set and featured proof versions of the annual circulating coins plus a few extras and retailed for about £50 about 4 or 5 years ago.

Then came the rebranding and repackaging followed swiftly by the re-pricing.

The cost virtually doubled within a couple of years of the rebranding and I purchased the 2015 set from the RM for about £150.

Yesterday I was told I need to pay nearly £200 for the privilege of continuing my collection with the 2016 edition.


Now don't get me wrong they are beautifully packaged and attractive but I just don't get the reason for the increase in price. Nothing else of significance has been added to the set that I can see, maybe others can put me right here. But maybe its time to admit end this collection here and start another chase ...
