UK 20P 2000 BU

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.

1982 20 Pence Piedfort

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.
