    1991 10th Anniversary 2 oz Piefort (or is pie'd'fort? I've seen both spellings, pie's on the label so that's what I've gone with) Silver Panda PF69 Ultra Cameo

    There are two spelling methods depending on the country, from memory. Both are correct.

    Nah the correct spelling is Piedfort.

    NGC and KM both use the Piefort spelling which is incorrect.

    A piedfort or piedforte (misspelled as piefort in the Standard Catalog of World Coins) is a coin measuring twice the original's weight and thickness. The name is derived from a French word meaning "heavy foot".[1] Coins like this are normally not put into general circulation, and are usually only struck for presentation purposes by individuals of mints for collectors.[1]
