Although there were 2.8m halfpennies minted in 1985, most of these were withheld by the Central bank of Ireland and did not circulate. Survivors are quite rare.
In 1986, only 6,750 halfpennies were struck and these were produced for a BU set. None of these coins circulated but, due to gum seepage on the packaging, many collectors broke up these sets and the individual coins are available to collectors.
