Fifty Pence 1998 NHS, Coin from United Kingdom
CoinFifty Pence 1998 NHS

Monday 5 July 1948 saw a dream become reality for millions of people in the UK with the birth of the National Health Service and the advent of free medical care for all. To honour the 50th year of hard work and dedication of a vital institution, The Royal Mint struck this commemorative 50 pence. Symbolising the hope brought by the NHS, the design by David Cornell shows light radiating from cupped hands, complemented by its seven-sided frame.

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.

Coins issued in 1998 have now been in circulation for 22 years.
