Comments

1992 saw the changeover from bronze to copper-plated steel for both the 1p & 2p to reduce the cost of production. Both bronze and copper-plated steel 1992 coins can be found, however those in Proof & Brilliant Uncirculated sets were struck in Bronze, while circulation strikes were copper-plated steel. Several varieties, possibly due to the change in material are noted as below.

Reverse die varieties:

Reverse A (1992-94) Junctions of portcullis bars are raised dots;
Reverse B (1992-97) Junctions of portcullis bars are incuse circles;
