In 2022, to celebrate a remarkable 150 years of the FA Cup, a brand new UK £2 coin was issued featuring the famed FA Cup Trophy.

This coin was so popular with collectors that the entire special edition range sold out within less than 24 hours at The Royal Mint!

Producing hometown heroes, as underdogs play alongside Premier League giants, these unforgettable moments unite football fans, making the FA Cup one of the greatest knockout tournaments in the world.

Sporting events such as these create huge fan-bases all across the world, each looking for a way to commemorate their favourite team or athlete’s successes.

This coin was initially issued as part of the 2020 Annual Coin Set but with the postponement of the Olympic Games to 2021, this 50p was never individually released in 2020.

This made this 50p one of most sought-after coins in recent yearswith collectors having waited a whole year to get their hands on the individual issue.

Additionally, due to the postponement of both the games and the issue of this 50p, there are two versions of the coin – one with the obverse dated 2020 from the 2020 Annual Coin Set and one with the obverse dated 2021 from the year of individual release.

This makes the 2021 Team GB 50p one of only a small handful of UK 50ps to feature a dual-date – only adding to the collectability of the new coin!
