What is special about this 20 Pence Piece? Not a lot, except perhaps that it was issued in 2000 and is the so-called Millennium 20 Pence. The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and we would almost be willing to bet that most collectors don’t have this date of coin in their collection. It has the Rank-Broadley bust of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and a crowned rose on the reverse. Again nothing special, but no one put these coins away so perhaps they will be scarce in the future.
In 2000 to celebrate the Millennium, the Royal Mint issued the regular coins in your pocket in Proof Sterling Silver. Someone broke up some of these sets and we bought what was left. Because collectors are always looking for a Silver example of the coins they collect. You get the 1p, 2p, 5p 10p and 20p of 2000 all struck in Proof Sterling Silver. Each coin comes in a protective capsule as issued in the set. We would usually charge much more if I sold them as individual coins, but let’s make it a Special Price to make everyone happy. You get all five (5) Sterling Silver Proofs for just £98.50 which is less than £20 a coin. Look what the Royal Mint is charging for similar single coins today. Supplies are limited
