On 15th February 1971, history was made when UK's coinage officially shifted from a 'centuries-old money' system of Pounds, Shillings and Pence (d), to a new decimal currency where the pound was divided into 100 (new) Pence (p). Fifty years on from Decimal Day, The Royal Mint celebrated this momentous moment in the history of British money with a range of commemorative Fifty Pence pieces. The reverse of these coins evokes the designs of pre-decimal coinage, showing parts of Shillings, Farthings, Threepence and more. It’s the work of Royal Mint designer Dominique Evans. Her Decimal Day design is paired with Jody Clarks portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. This piedfort coin is finished to proof standard in 16.00 grams of .925 silver, offering a superior level of detail, achieved with specially prepared dies.
