1993 Ireland 5 Pence (Pingin)

Now this is a real Irish coin, not some Euro cover. Pre-Euro coins are still floating around in change because billions were made and are still considered common. They have low value and will continue to for many years.

The front has the harp with designs on it that is till used on modern Irish euros. The metal is copper-nickel which gives it some value over face.

The reverse features a bull over the 5P which is 5 pence or pingin in Irish. Previous versions has the bull facing right and the coin itself was larger. It was reduced by 1993 to save on metal costs but they did not issue the coin every year only when circulating coins were running out.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 5 Pence / Ireland
Year: 1993
Mintage: 89,109,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.10 in XF
