In 2013 this UK 50p will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of British composer Benjamin Britten. This unique coin is also the first ever UK 50p to show both date and denomination on the obverse.
Developed with the Britten-Pears Foundation, the coin features words by the poet Tennyson from Britten’s ‘Serenade’. Included in the informative souvenir pack are three individual prints of Britten’s handwritten manuscripts for choral, opera and film music.
This individually numbered Coin Cover – a limited edition of 10,000 – pays tribute to this maestro and features the Benjamin Britten Special Stamp from the recent ‘Great Britons’ issue uniquely cancelled on the anniversary of Benjamin Britten’s birth - 22 November.
