CoinTen Pence 2018 (mint sets only)

The ten pence coin is a small circulating denomination of the British (decimal) Pound Sterling. 10 pence equal one tenth of a pound.

In August 2005 the Royal Mint launched a competition to find new reverse designs for all circulating coins apart from the £2 coin. The winner, announced in April 2008, was Matthew Dent, whose designs were gradually introduced into the circulating British coinage from mid-2008. In a world-first concept, the designs for the 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p and 50p coins depict sections of the Royal Shield that form the whole shield when placed together. The shield in its entirety was featured on the £1 coin (now discontinued).

The new 10p coin design, which replaced the earlier 10p design by Christopher Ironside, depicts the first quarter of the shield, showing the lions passant from the Royal Banner of England, with the words TEN PENCE above the shield design. The coin's obverse remains largely unchanged, but the beading (the ring of dots around the coin's circumference), which no longer features on the coin's reverse, has also been removed from the obverse.

The ten pence coin was originally minted from cupronickel, but in January 2012 it changed to nickel-plated steel due to the increasing price of metal. From January 2013, the Royal Mint began a programme to gradually remove the previous cupro-nickel coins from circulation with replacement by the nickel-plated steel versions.

Five pence and ten pence coins are legal tender only up to the sum of £5; this means it is permissible to refuse payment of sums greater than this amount in 5p and 10p coins to settle a debt.

Coins issued in 2018 have now been circulating for only two years.

No ten pence coins of this type were released into circulation in 2018. Some were struck for the Royal Mint's annual sets only.
