Against the background of the Golden Jubilee in 1887, the Royal Mint issued a small number of full proof sets of the British coinage – the first since 1853. The engraver Joseph Edgar Boehm (1834-90) was chosen to create the obverse portrait of Victoria with his initials appearing on each specimen.

There were 11 coins in the 1887 set, from the gold £5 piece to the silver threepence. A £2 piece made its first appearance in 56 years while the silver double florin was issued for the first time.

Relatively few full sets survive in original cases, with this one pitched at £3000-5000 as part of a sale of Coins, Tokens & Banknotes at Lacy Scott & Knight in Bury St Edmunds on June 17.
