In 2000 to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Public Library Act, the Royal Mint released a very Limited Issue commemorative Brilliant Uncirculated Public Library 50p Fifty Pence Coin Pack.

Today, the public library service lies at the very heart of every community in the United Kingdom, undergoing education and enriching the quality of life. It is perhaps the biggest cultural revolution the nation has seen, a revolution that began with the Public Libraries Act of 1850 and one that is still in full swing.

Its special reverse design, created by Mary Milner Dickens, depicts the turning pages of a book above the pediment of a classical library building, the facade decorated with CD‘s to give a modern perspective.
The obverse features the portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank Broadley FRBS, FSNAD.
