Irish 20p piece 1985

Take the 20p piece -- the copper-coloured one featuring the horse. If you find one of these from 1985, you stand to make at least €10,000 in auction.

It's the same story with a 1992 10p coin. The following year, a new reduced-sized 10p was officially unveiled. But early examples were specially minted for the vending machines and, if you come across one, your bank balance will swell by between €5,000 and €10,000.

Ireland 20 pence 1985.  Thiscoin continues W.B.Yeats's harp and animal design theme with the same designs of Percy Metcalf's 1928 halfcrown being adapted.  Obv. A harp of 14 strings dividing EIRE and 1985, the Rev. Percy Metcalf's horse standing left on a flat line, 20 P above.  Edge alternates plain to reeded three times. 

The 1985 Irish 20 pencecame about when there was a need to calibrate the vending machines in 1985 in anticipation of the launch of the new brass and copper nickel 20 pence denomination harp and horse coin in 1986.
