To mark 50 years since Concorde's first flight a brand new British Isles 50p has been approved.

2019 marks 50 years since the first flight of the legendary Concorde.

First flown in 1969, Concorde entered service in 1976 and continued flying for the next 27 years. It is one of only two supersonic transports to have been operated commercially. It had a maximum speed over twice the speed of sound at Mach 2.04 (1,354 mph).

Now, to commemorate this historic milestone, three stunning new British Isles 50p Coins have been approved.
