Fifty Pence 1992 Single Market, Coin from United Kingdom - detailed information

Fifty Pence 1992 Single Market, Coin from United Kingdom (demonetised 1998)
CoinFifty Pence 1992 Single Market

The British fifty pence (50p) coin - often pronounced fifty pee - is a unit of currency equaling one half of a pound sterling. It is a seven-sided coin formed as an equilateral-curve heptagon, or Reuleaux polygon - a curve of constant width, meaning that the diameter is constant across any bisection. This shape, which was revolutionary at the time, made it easily distinguishable from round coins both by feel and by sight, while its constant breadth allowed it to roll in vending machines.

The denomination was introduced in October 1969 when the 50p joined the 5p (shilling) and 10p (florin) coins in circulation, leaving only the three copper coins (1/2p, 1p and 2p) to be introduced on 15 February 1971 to complete the new series of decimal coins; unlike other coin types at the time though, the 50 pence coin was not made equivalent to a pre-decimal coin; it was the same as a crown in value but not in appearance or size.

With the introduction of smaller 5p and 10p coins in 1990 and 1992 respectively, the 50p became the largest coin in circulation. In October 1994 the Government announced a further review of the United Kingdom coinage. The results revealed a requirement for a smaller 50p coin, which was duly introduced on 1 September 1997; it retained the design by Christopher Ironside. The large fifty pence coins were demonetised in 1998.

In 1992, a fifty pence coin was issued to commemorate the United Kingdom's Presidency of the European Community, and the completion of the Single European Market. The United Kingdom held the Presidency of the European Community during the second half of 1992. The Single European Market came into effect on January 1st 1993.

All circulation 50p coins for 1992 were of this commemorative type instead of the traditional Seated Britannia type. However, the uncirculated and proof mint sets issued this year had both versions (78,421 brilliant uncirculated, 44,337 proofs in the standard set and 17,989 in a red leather case).

The design was re-issued in 2009 as a Non-Circulating Legal Tender coin to mark the 40th Anniversary of the 50p denomination.

Only 109,000 were issued for circulation though, which is an extremely low figure for this denomination.

A representation of a table on which are placed twelve stars, linked by a network of lines to each other and also to twelve chairs around the table, on one of which appear the letters UK; the dates 1992 and 1993 are above and the value 50 PENCE is below. This is the first British coin to bear dual dates (1992 / 1993) rather than the normal single date.

The designer's initials MMD (for Mary Milner Dickens) are situated in the field between the table and the first E of PENCE.

Notes

Only 109,000 of these coins were released into circulation.

The coin was issued in two different Brilliant Uncirculated annual mint sets, those for 1992 and for 1993; it was only included in the proof sets for 1992 though.

Note that there was also a two-coin set with the Britannia 50p for which the mintage is not known, so it is not accounted for in the total mintage above.
