The Royal Mint issued British Pound coins in 16 different denominations, including this British large style 5p coin. They are part of the predecimal and withdrawn Pound Sterling coins series. The Royal Mint started issuing these 0.05 British Pound coins in 1968. They were withdrawn from circulation in 1990.
The large style 5p coin has the same dimensions and mass as the predecimal one shilling coin. Like the one shilling coin, the large style cupronickel 5 pence piece was often referred to as a ‘bob’. Its design features the crowned thistle, Badge of Scotland, on the obverse side, and Queen Elizabeth II on the reverse side. Older versions contain the text ‘five new pence’, whereas more modern versions simply read ‘five pence’.
