Set Description
Great Britain 1/4F-1/3F-1/2F-1.5P and 4P (Britannia) Proofs and Patterns

Set Goals
Build a comprehensive collection of very high grade British fractional Proofs and Patterns to include 1/4F-1/3F-1/2F-1.5P and 4P (Britannia) Groats: George IV - William IV - Victoria.

The references I found most useful in collecting these coins are "English Silver Coinage - since 1649" by P. Alan Rayner and "English Copper, Tin, and Bronze Coins in the British Museum 1558-1958" by C. Wilson Peck.


These coins were acquired - mostly as raw coins - between 1982 and 2017.
