Coin Set Worth

These may have been posted before, but I couldn't find anything, and I can't find much by searching on the internet. I was given these years ago and don't know anything about them. Can someone help me on what these coins are? What they are worth? ... and any other information. Thanks in advance.

    That's a UK set not a US set - although it could have been made in the US.
    They are not actual coins. Those are modern souvenir medals. I'm not familiar with that specific issue as there are multiple versions of such things. They may be silver, silver-plated, or clad. They may be worth $2 or $50. We'd need more information. Is there a maker's name on the box or an accompanying COA.

    That's doesn't appear to be an official UK set.

    That appears to be a privately contracted out set, given the very poor quality of the portraits, which was made as a fantasy set prepaid sold as a commemorative for previous monarchs on the twentieth century and including the abdication of Edward VIII. Some of these privately, or quasi-nationally, sets have a following and some are certified by PCGS/NGC, but many others have neither a following nor are they eligible for certification. This is one of the latter sets (not much following and not eligible for certification). I would imagine these go for very little money and would guess they are about $10-$20 for the set.

    Which coin sets do you have in mind? It varies from set to set and the state preservation.

    The Coin Dealer Newsletter (Grey Sheet) has prices for many complete sets.

    I think that is definitely an non-British mint product. The portraits are not that nice, and the British usually do not issue sets like that. There are many privately issues medals, however.

    When I was looking to fill the Edward VIII hole in my all kings and queens of England collection, I learned that many private mints produced unofficial coronation medals for the king who abdicated after less than year. This was the one I finally selected. This was not an official issue of the Royal Mint. It is PCGS graded.

    @goantigo... Welcome aboard. You can show better pictures and give more information, however, it seems your set is not of numismatic value. Cheers, RickO
