Coins from the end of an era

The Royal Mint has been at the heart of British coinage for over 1,000 years, creating coins that can pinpoint a moment in time. One such moment was the introduction of a decimal coinage system in 1971. 45 years may have passed since decimalisation, but the coins that were phased out are still fondly remembered.
