Best Answer

Only the "VIP specimen" coins, of which very few were minted, were satin finish.

The general circulation coin, of which 9.64 million were minted, was cupro-nickel and neither coin had any silver content.

_______

At last you can realise the answer. I have a satin finish. Its an extremely rare coin R7 one to five examples known. My Mum went into a bank in 1965 to purchase what she thought would be the usual cupro nickel coin but was randomly handed the satin finish specimen and told to look after it as it would be valuable in years to come. Unfortunately Mum put it into her purse where it stayed for 35 years, when she gave it to me.

It is the same as the cupro nickel strike but is a fine gold colour highly polished and a beautiful piece. Its certainly not in the finest condition with some scratching, but is one of a very few. My son is the one who now owns the coin and can sell if he needs to.

_________

The satin finish coins were presented to VIPs, and just short of 1,000 of these were struck.

You would need to take the coin to a decent dealer to confirm that it is one of the satin finish VIP coins. It is still a rare coin and I would expect a really nice specimen to achieve or exceed its catalogue value of £1,500.
