United Kingdom: Coin Fifty Pence 1998 EU
CoinFifty Pence 1998 EU

These circulating commemorative coins mark the United Kingdom’s twenty-fifth anniversary of EU membership and presidency of the Council of Ministers. The United Kingdom's entry into the European Economic Community in 1973 was marked by the issue of a commemorative fifty pence coin. Since then the fifty pence has become the 'European' coin, chosen again in 1992/93 to mark two further historic European Union events, the United Kingdom's Presidency of the Council of Ministers and the completion of the Single European Market. This 1998 coin commemorates 25 years of the United Kingdom's membership and its six-month Presidency of the European Union.

The British decimal fifty pence (50p) coin - often pronounced fifty pee - is a unit of currency equalling 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 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).

Twenty pence and fifty pence coins are legal tender only up to the sum of £10; this means that it is permissible to refuse payment of sums greater than this amount in 20p and 50p coins in order to settle a debt.

The mint sets of the year contained both the Britannia type and (this) EU commemorative 50 pence type coins. Separately, a set with the two fifty pence coins only (Britannia and EU) was issued, with unlisted mintage.

Coins issued in 1998 have now been in circulation for 20 years.

Crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH · II · D · G REG · F · D · 1998. Translated from Latin: Elizabeth the Second, by the grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith 1998.
