In 2009 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the first Mini Car, the Royal Mint released a very Limited Issue £10 Ten Pound Silver Proof Coin struck in solid .925 Sterling Silver weighing five ounces of Silver on behalf of Alderney.
The Mark I Mini (1959–1967) was the first version of British Motor Corporation's Mini. It is characterised by its sliding windows, external door hinges and "moustache" grille. In the United Kingdom the Mark I was produced between 1959 and 1967, with production in Australia continuing until 1970.
