Set Description:

The proof sets for 1928 have a recorded mintage of 6,001 sets - the constituent coins are very occasionally offered singly - so presumably all 6,001 of each coin were originally placed in the sets. Many of the 1928 sets were used as diplomatic gifts in Irish embassies around the world. Supplied lasted until about 1960 and it was the end of this supply that triggered the unusual act of producing restrikes of the 1928 proof in 1960/61 which lead to the very rare restrike set and also indirectly to the 1961 mule halfcrown. Many of the 50 (or possibly 100) sets produced don't appear to have been issued and most may still be in the possession of the Central Bank.
