Are they perhaps in the same class as Polish coins marked "proba" - I know the latter often differ somewhat from the circulating issues in design detail, but appear to be available in greater numbers than normal trial/pattern strikes so presumably are sold off officially. [...] They're still official issues, after all, not fantasies produced by private mints or for fictitious or unrecognised entities.

Just because I own a set doesn't necessarily mean I know a lot about them, but this is essentially what I've been told from other sources.
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....

Question, where can I get my hands on a similar set? Does the seller happen to have another set?
