In 1992 the Royal Mint decided to reduce the size of the 10 Pence Piece. It had stayed the same size as the old Florin since decimal coins were first issued in 1968.

To honour this event and the change over from large to small size, they struck Proof examples of the old Large Sized 10p and Proof examples of the new Small Sized 10p, both in Proof Sterling Silver. The large sized coins were only available in base metal in the Mint and Proof Sets of that year, none were struck for circulation. The Sterling Silver pieces are only available in this set and were struck for collectors.

The ‘new’ small sized 10p is now over 20 years old and we think this pair is a very interesting combination. After all, where else can you get both sizes in Proof Sterling Silver?

The 1984 Halfpence, Two Pence, Five Pence, Ten Pence and Fifty Pence were not struck for circulation. The only way to get one of these coins is to buy a Mint Set or Proof Set and break it up. They only made 158,820 of the Mint Set with the coins in Specimen Brilliant Uncirculated condition. That makes these coins some of the lowest mintage coins around. Offered here is the Ten Pence in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Septimius Severus Silver Denarius Very Fine

Septimius Severus was Roman Emperor from AD 193-211. In AD 208 he travelled to Britain to strengthen Hadrian’s Wall and went on to invade Scotland that same year but his plans were cut short when he became ill and died in York in AD 211. We have a few silver denarius in Very Fine Condition minted during his reign. There are different types but all have his portrait on the obverse, and usually a standing or seated figure on the reverse. PHOTOGRAPH IS REPRESENTATIVE OF COIN SUPPLIED.
