Seems like I’ve hit a British vein in the bag lately. I hope I’m getting the common stuff out of the way early on.
United Kingdom, 10 pence, 1973 (KM #912)
When the UK decimalized, the new 10 pence coin matched the size and weight of the old 2 shillings coin. The diameter of the 10 pence coin was reduced by 4mm in 1992, so this large-size coin won’t circulate in the UK, but its still legal tender and worth about 16 cents USD. Mintage is 152,174,000.
Weight 11.22 g
Diameter 28.37 mm
Thickness 2.27 mm
