Elizabeth II. Royal Mint Error 20p, 1982. Wrong Metal / Weight. In Bronze.

  • A very rare example of a Royal Mint error 20 Pence struck in wrong metal and underweight, bronze rather than the standard cupro-nickel as intended. This unusual mix up at the Mint has caused an interesting collectors piece. A known error in which similar examples have caused news headlines with other pieces sold and discovered in the past.


    3.62/3grams in weight. Approximately 1.38 grams underweight for a standard 20p of that year.


    The error would most likely have been caused by having been struck on a 1p blank, although thinner than both a normal issue 20p and 1p.


    The coin is in very attractive condition, with some original lustre and eye appeal in the hand.
