The Royal Mint and Bank of England Twenty Pounds and Silver Proof Millennium Crown Set
The £20 notes are the first of the Elgar designs and show the cypher YR20 and a serial number between 000001 and 000394.
The Bank of England have issued this special cypher to mark the beginning of the new millennium. YR20 will not be produced for general circulation.
The new crown of 2000 also celebrates the new millennium. The focal point of the design bears a representation of the British Isles with a pair of clock hands - highlighted in 22 carat gold, pivoted on Greenwich and set at the crucial twelve o'clock position, with the important millennium dates of 1999 and 2000 incorporated either side and is struck to Proof quality.
The set is beautifully presented in the original red Royal Mint presentation case, accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity.
