British Culture 

In the 50 years since it launched in 1969, the 50p has become one of the nation’s most popular coins. Released in a range of commemorative editions, it’s often the first coin people put to one side, to start a lifelong love of collecting.

As we mark this milestone moment for the 50p, The Royal Mint is delighted to release this set containing five standout designs from the last 50 years. Year-dated 2019 and finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard, superior to the coins in your change, it’s a fitting tribute to one of our most iconic coins.

Military

From the Battle of Hastings to D-Day, epic battles have altered history’s path. Over the last 50 years, the 50p has been chosen to commemorate some of the most pivotal moments in military history, defining moments that every child still learns about in school.

As we celebrate 50 years of the 50p, this carefully curated set brings together all five military themed designs that have graced the coin: the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, the 50th anniversary of D-Day, the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and two coins commemorating the 150th anniversary of the creation of the Victoria Cross medal.
