Looks like the Birmingham Mint commemorative set to me.

Di,
I have a full collection of the badges but not the coins/medallions fully documented here http://www.britishbadgeforum.com/for...hp?albumid=767
If you choose to sell these Birmingham Mint badges individually or in small lots on eBay you might get up to 5 per badge.

Foe example http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1922856391...84.m1558.l2649

However, they are handsome badges and sometimes they can achieve more.

Tim
