British coins 20 Pence - 1982 to 2018 - Price Guide

20 Pence 1982 to 2018 - Price Guide and values

The Tudor rose (sometimes called the Union rose) is crowned on the reverse of this denomination before the Royal Arms. The Tudor rose consists of five white inner petals, representing the House of York, and five red outer petals to represent the House of Lancaster. To help identification and avoid confusion with similar sized coins, the 20p is seven sided and, like the 50p, an equilateral curve heptagon. The shape, with its constant rolling diameter, means that it is readily acceptable in vending machines.
