2019 50 Years of 50p UK Coin


1 in stock


A special anniversary edition of the 50p celebrates the science behind the shape
50 years ago a revolutionary new coin entered circulation ahead of the decimal switchover. Half a century later it’s still a mainstay of our coinage, testament to the science behind its radical design. As we celebrate 50 years of the 50p, a special anniversary coin pays tribute to Hugh Conway and his team. Tasked with creating a coin easily distinguishable by touch and sight that would still roll smoothly, their perfectly engineered solution gave us the world’s first seven-sided coin.
  • A minting first – a 50p featuring a privy mark referencing the science behind its shape
  • A great way to continue your 50 years of the 50p collection
  • An opportunity to purchase an individual 50p commemorative coin to mark this numismatic milestone
  • The perfect addition to the 50 years of the 50p celebration sets
  • Features Christopher Ironside’s iconic Britannia design inscribed with ‘NEW PENCE’ like the original coin
