Silver proof 50p for the 50th Anniversary of Decimal Day
After many years of planning and campaigning in 1971 the United Kingdom coinage changed from pounds, shillings and pence to a new decimal currency. A new factory and machinery was needed to carry out this enormous task. Fifty years later to celebrate this achievement, the Royal Mint has struck this silver proof fifty pence depicting pre decimal coinage.
