Ireland 50-PENCE (KM24) Woodcock

The Woodcock from the original 'Barnyard Series' farthing was resurrected in the decimal series on the much larger 50d coin.

This appears to be a 7-sided coin, but the "sides" are actually curved around a radius measured from the opposite point. This means the coin will roll easily. (I tried it. It really does roll nicely.)


  • Diameter: 30 mm
  • Composition: Copper-Nickel
  • CAT#: KM24
