In 1969, one of the most innovative designs in British numismatic history was introduced – the 50p coin.
The 50p was first introduced to British purses and pockets as a part of decimalisation. This unique and modern coin was a huge change from the shillings and pence that went before it and became the world’s first seven-sided coin.
2019 marks 50 years since this significant change in British coinage. In fact, over the past few years the 50p has become one of the most collected UK coins, featuring many different commemorative designs and launching a whole new generation of collectors.
