HC Deb 03 November 1970 vol 805 cc317-8W
72. Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will now give details of the issue by the Royal Mint of proof sets of the new decimal coinage.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

My right hon. Friend hopes to make an announcement about proof sets of United Kingdom coins shortly. Mint officials have yet to complete their consultations with numismatists and others about the potential market for these coins.
