Elizabeth II, two 10 pences (Large & Small) 1992
In 1992 the Royal Mint reduced the size of the 10 Pence, the first time since it was originally struck in 1968. The coin was too big and did not reflect the change in our lives and the usage of our coins. So a new smaller coin was struck. For collectors the Royal Mint issued a set of the old large sized 10p and the new smaller 10p in Sterling Silver. Please remember that the large sized 10p was not produced for circulation in any metal. So if you want a large sized 10p dated 1992 you will need one in silver and this is it. You get both the large sized and the small sized 10 Pences, both dated 1992 and both in Proof Sterling Silver. The pair come in a Royal Mint case of issue.
