A UK 50p was authorised for release to celebrate Team GB and mark the 2020 Tokyo Olympics held in 2021.
Significantly, this coin was never meant to exist, making it highly sought-after.
This coin was originally slated for release in 2020 but was delayed due to the Olympic Games being postponed and rescheduled to 2021, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. This was the first time that the games had been rescheduled rather than cancelled.
As a result, the coin is dual-dated. The reverse by David Knapton features various sporting images alongside “Team GB” and the date “2020” to mark the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The obverse by Jody Clark features the year of issue, 2021. This is only one of a handful of dual-dated 50ps to exist in British numismatic history!
Your coin has been struck to Brilliant Uncirculated quality and will arrive beautifully presented in a stylish presentation pack from The Royal Mint.
Better yet, it’s available at The Royal Mint’s official issue price of JUST £10 (+p&p).
