Fifty Cents 2022 Platinum Jubilee, Coin from Australia
CoinFifty Cents 2022 Platinum Jubilee

The Australian 50 cent denomination was first introduced as a silver coin with decimalisation on 14 February 1966, but was changed in 1969 to its current specifications: a large dodecagonal (12-sided) copper-nickel coin; apart from the usual design featuring the Australian Coat of Arms, the denomination is also extensively used to issue circulating commemorative coins with various reverses. It is one of the heaviest coins in regular circulation in the world.

Apart from circulating coins, the Royal Australian Mint has a range of Non-Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT) 50 cent coins issued for collectors, such as this one.

This coin commemorates the Platinum Jubilee (70 years on the throne) of Queen Elizabeth II - the longest reigning British monarch, who is also the Queen of Australia.

No coins of this type were released into circulation.

Obverse
Australia / Fifty Cents 2022 Platinum Jubilee - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old bust of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide but "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, where the Queen's portrait by Vladimir Gottwald was fifth).

The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen mother) in 1937.

Unlike on British coinage, the effigy is "uncouped" (includes the Queen's shoulders). In small letters on the left, the artist's initials JC (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2022 · 50 CENTS ·.

Reverse

The coin’s reverse depicts Her Majesty’s cypher E II R (Elizabeth II Regina - Elizabeth the Second, Queen), bordered by lily of the valley, one of the Queen’s favourite flowers and golden wattle, Australia’s national floral emblem.

The St. Edwards Crown above centre is one of seventy crowns fanning out, one for each year of Her Majesty’s reign.

In the exergue, divided by the flowers, the inscription PLATINUM JUBILEE.

The designer's initials BS (for B Scott) are next to a flower stem below left.
