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.
