This issue was withdrawn in May, 1881, except for 38,400 pieces. The pieces were melted for the 1881 1/12 shilling issue.

Things to note:
  • There is only one die; however, dies show signs of deterioration, i.e., die filling.

  • Dies were engraved at the Royal Mint, but the Heaton Mint struck the coins.
