Twenty Pounds, Coin Type from United Kingdom - detailed information

Twenty Pounds, Coin Type from United Kingdom (issued 2013 - )
Coin TypeTwenty Pounds

The Twenty Pounds (£20) is a non-circulating legal tender (NCLT) coin issued by the Royal Mint since 2013.

The denomination is used to mark special occasions, usually royal in theme, and is not intended for general circulation - which is served by a banknote of the same value instead. The coins are legal tender, but contrary to popular belief this does not mean that banks and retailers automatically have to accept them (in practice, they do not accept them).
