No 10 Pence coins were issued for circulation from 1982 until 1992 when the 10 Pence coin was reduced in size, this was due to the fact that pre-decimal florins were still circulating as part of the decimalization process having a value of 10 Pence. Florins were finally demonetized in 1993 along side this larger 10 Pence issue type.
