Weight: 56.56 Grams / Diameter: 38.61mm. Issue Limit: 2,818 Worldwide. The obverse design is a stunning portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank Broadley. Piedforts are coins which have been especially struck on thicker than normal blanks.
As their name suggests they are closely associated with France, where from the twelfth century, they were apparently issued by the Kings as presentation pieces. In Britain, the practice of striking piedforts is later and less frequent, but medieval and Tudor examples are known. These legal tender coins have been struck to proof quality using specially prepared dies and highly polished blanks. This item is in the category "Coins\Coins\British\Proof Sets/Coins\2000s".
