On the reverse of the 25 Pounds coin there is a small rectangle after the word POUNDS which contains 4-digits (between 0001 and 3000). This coin was only distributed as part of a set and this 4-digit number indicated the number of that set, however it is only stamped on the largest coin, of which this is number #833.
