This 1990-dated Proof Coin Collection contains the range of UK coins from the penny to the one pound. 1990 will mark the issue of a new, smaller five pence coin to replace the existing coin of that denomination. This continues the process of change for the coinage that began with decimalisation in 1971. At that time the size of the pre-decimal shillings and florins was retained for the five and ten pence coins. The 1990 five pence marks the first change in the size and weight of the shilling for over 150 years.
