Availability: In stock
SKU: CLI7479

In 1997 the Royal Mint reduced the size of the 50 Pence coin. To celebrate and honour that event, they struck a pair of both sizes of the 50p in Proof Sterling Silver and put them into a green presentation case.
The larger of the two coins weighs 13.5 grams and the smaller one weighs 8 grams. Both are in protective capsules, in a Royal Mint presentation case and each set also comes with a certificate.
Most of us still love the old large sized coin, but progress is progress.

You can add this handsome set of the large and small sized 50 Pence pieces to your collection, they really look nice.

Elizabeth II, 20 Pence 1982 Piedfort

In 1982 the Royal Mint introduced a new denomination, the 20 Pence Piece. As most collectors are aware, it was in fact not a new denomination, but a recreation of the Double Florin which was issued under Queen Victoria from 1887-1890. This coin had many sides and the public immediately liked it. The Royal Mint issued a small quantity of these coins in Sterling Silver Proof but they were double the normal thickness and are called a Piedfort. This is the first Piedfort that the Royal Mint allowed collectors to buy and has proved to be very popular. They are struck in Proof Sterling Silver and come in a blue Royal Mint case of issue.
