CoinFifty Pence 2019 The Gruffalo and Mouse (NCLT)

The British 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 of its introduction, makes it easily distinguishable from round coins both by feel and by sight, while its constant breadth allows it to roll in vending machines.

The first UK Fifty Pence coin was issued in 1969 with the classic Britannia reverse design by Christopher Ironside, which was superseded in 2008 by the Matthew Dent design for circulation coins.The denomination is also extensively used to issue circulating commemorative coins.

Beginning in 2009, the Royal Mint started issuing 50 pence coins for collectors - such as this one - which are not meant to be released in circulation, so are classified as Non-Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT).

This coin continues the great success of earlier circulation commemoratives celebrating favourite children story characters; it marks 20 years since the publication of the book - The Gruffalo®. The coin was issued in several formats: Brilliant Uncirculated in a presentation folder (Royal Mint Product code: UK19GRBU, issue price £10.00); Silver Proof - coloured, in acrylic block; and Gold Proof.

It is the second coin about this character; the first one featured the The Gruffalo alone.

No coins of this type were issued into circulation.
