Here is the smaller of my two collections. It is split into three sections. Pre-decimal, Decimal and Sets. With the Pre-decimal collection, I collect any circulating coins, (apart from gold) so long as it has a date on it. The oldest dated coin I have so far is the 1567 silver sixpence.

 

Decimalization in Great Britain took place over three years. 1968 - 1971. From February 1971, all but three of the pre-decimal coins were demonetized leaving the sixpence, and the 1 and 2 Shilling coins. The sixpence had an equivalent value of 2.5 new pence, and was demonetized in 1980. The other two continued to circulate as 5 and 10 Pence coins until 1990 and 1992 respectively when the new coins were reduced in size.

The sets option displays a list of all the British un-circulated mint sets that are in my collection. Same applies to the proof sets link for British proof sets.

  The key for the lists are as follows:

 

- Blue = Coin or set in collection

 

- Black = Coin or set not in collection
