Comments:

These coins can only be found in Annual Coin Sets in both Brilliant Uncirculated & Proof versions.

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.
