The coins in this set were the earliest patterns for a British Decimal Coinage. While restrikes were made in 1888 (by Shorthouse) that exist in various metals, only the original strikings are in copper and are free from die rust marks. Peck states in a footnote (page 479, 2nd Edition) describing the copper 10-cent, 5-cent, 2-cent, and 1-cent pieces as being the 'Decimal equivalents of a , a Penny, a , and a , respectively'. Further, Peck states that 'It is highly probable that the 1-centum piece was intended to represent a silver Decimal of '.
