1990 Large & Small 5 Pence Set Silver Proofs
1990 Large & Small 5 Pence Set Silver Proofs. In 1990 the Royal Mint reduced the size of our 5 Pence. To commemorate this historic reduction in the size of our coin, the Royal Mint issued a Special collector’s set of the old large sized coin and the new smaller sized coin. But this set was only struck in Proof Sterling Silver, which makes it very important today.
We have just purchased a small holding of the large and small Sterling Silver 5 Pence Sets. Each set is in the original Royal Mint case as issued. This set is missing from many collections and I think that you will find it most interesting.
