Comments

On the Reverse there is a small rectangle after the word POUNDS which contains 4 digits that can be any number between 0001 and 3000. This coin was only distributed as part of a set with KM#7 to 11, and this 4 digit number indicated the number of that set, but it is only present in this -the biggest- coin of the set.
