Mint number: 087
The Royal Mint has released 26 10p coin designs celebrating Britain, using the theme of the A to Z of Britain. Each coin combines a letter of the alphabet with an aspect of quintessential Britishness.
This is the first time the Royal Mint has produced a series of commemorative 10p coins and each 10p coin has been struck in .925 Sterling Silver to a Proof finish.
N - National Health Service.
This 10p features a stethoscope wrapped around the letter ‘N’ to form the shape of a heart to celebrate the National Health Service. It is loved by Britain and the world for being the first ever health service to provide free healthcare based on a person’s clinical need instead of their ability to pay.
