Irish 1966 Ten Shilling Silver Commemorative

It’s surprising that any of these coins have survived the melting pot’s of the 1980s. During the silver boom of the early 80s the melt value of this half oz.
Just like mainland Britain, there was a drastic shortage of coinage in circulation at the time, and what remained was in a poor state.

As a result an emergency issue of tokens took place to try and satisfy the demand including these 10 pence silver pieces. A few years later a complete new series of coins was introduced and these token coins recalled and scrapped, leaving very few around and making them quite scarce. The pieces we have are in fine and better condition.
