Elizabeth II, Five Pence Pair Silver Proof Special, 1990
In 1990 the Royal Mint reduced the size of the 5 Pence piece to the size we use today. They did
strike some of the large sized 1990 5 Pence pieces but they were only in the Mint and Proof Sets.
For collectors they issued a fantastic set of the Large and Small sized 1990 5 Pence pieces in Proof
Sterling Silver. We have just managed to find a small group of this difficult to get set, up North.
You get both the Large sized 1990 5 Pence in Proof Sterling Silver and the Small sized 1990 5 Pence
in Proof Sterling Silver. The pair come in the Official Royal Mint presentation case.
Not an easy set to get and the 1990 Large sized 5 Pence is really a collectors coin. Only a restricted number of sets in
stock and when these are gone, who knows where we will find any more…
