HC Deb 14 October 1952 vol 505 c20
38. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can now state whether five-shilling pieces will be minted for the Coronation.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Yes, Sir. They will.

Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

Will the right hon. Gentleman also have made—as was done in connection with the Festival of Britain—sets of coins to be sold, including 5s. pieces? They yielded a very satisfactory revenue in 1951.

Mr. Butler

I will investigate that and let the hon. and gallant Member have an answer.
