Hi I have this coin but with orange writing and the three crosses are also orange. Is this a rare coin??
Is it ment to have the date around the queens head?
My one has the value of the coin on reverse very unusual I thought
I’ve got same, FIFTY PENCE reversed, and same thought it was rare. But, is it? Can’t find anything in the web about the reverse thing
