Elizabeth II, 20 Pence Piedfort, 1982

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.

Elizabeth II, 50 Pence 50th Anniv of D-Day Uncirculated, 1994

DDAY50P 50th Anniv of D-Day Unc 50 Pence. In 1994 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative 50 Pence for the 50th Anniversary of D-Day, one of the most important days in World War II. It was the older large sized 50 Pence and today it is very difficult to find, especially in Uncirculated condition. One of the marketing companies is selling this coin for £11.00, which I think is far too much. True it is difficult to find, but still £11.00 is a lot of money. We have some in stock and are offering it for £6.95, which I believe is a much more realistic and fairer price.

Elizabeth II, 50 Pence EU Uncirculated, 1973

In 1973 we were still using the old large size 50 Pence coin. In 1973 the Royal Mint issued it’s first ever commemorative 50 Pence coin. At that time you could only buy the proof version in cupro-nickel, how times have changed. No silver, no silver piedfort, no gold, no platinum just the base metal the coin was issued in, but it did come in a red leatherette case. So what happened? Just as you suspected, everyone wanted one of the new commemorative Fifty Pence pieces in Proof condition, so that even today they are not all that hard to get. But the error that most collectors made was in not putting aside this first commemorative coin in Uncirculated condition… Because we now know that the 1973 Fifty Pence piece is much scarcer in Uncirculated condition than the Proof coin. So when we bought a small group the other month we were delighted, after all we know that this coin is scarce and missing from many collections. But just because it is Scarce in this condition does not mean that it will cost you a fortune. If you have the Proof you just might want to add an Uncirculated example to your collection as well. The Uncirculated Coin is Scarcer Than the Proof!
