This set contains five 50 pence coins carrying the reverse designs of commemorative 50 pence issued in earlier years and having topics related to British culture; all coins in the set are dated 2019.
The Royal Mint says:
"Check your change and if you’re lucky you might find a commemorative 50p - and some are much rarer than others. Over the years, the coin has celebrated every aspect of British culture, including the stories behind the people and institutions that put the great into Great Britain. As the nation’s most collectable coin reaches a milestone moment, 50 years in circulation, The Royal Mint is delighted to present a special commemorative set to mark this momentous occasion.
These carefully curated coins showcase some of the signature designs that have graced the 50p during the last half century. Designs celebrating the first sub-four-minute mile, the Scouting movement, the Girl Guides and Kew Gardens join Christopher Ironside’s original seated Britannia. Finished to Proof standard, the 2019 editions of these sought-after favourites are fitting tributes to a much-loved modern-day icon."
