Vote for your all-time favourite circulating QEII 50p
As the Pride 50p marks the last UK coin to enter circulation with QEII’s portrait on the obverse, we asked you to vote for your top circulating QEII 50p!
King Charles III’s new coinage will begin circulating from December – starting with the brand new Queen Elizabeth II Memorial 50p. So, it’s the perfect time to look back at an astonishing 70 years of top QEII 50p issues.
From the UK’s rarest 50p (Kew Gardens), to the biggest range of sporting coins (Olympic 50ps), it’s understandably a hard task to pick a favourite.
Your top circulating QEII 50p!
The results are in! Your top circulating QEII 50p is…
2017 Sir Isaac Newton 50p
Issued in 2017, this coin has a mintage of just 1,801,500, ranking it as less common on our Scarcity Index.
The reverse of this striking coin is based on elements of Proposition 11, in Book One of Newton’s Principia Mathematica.
P.S. did you know Newton is one of the most famous figures to ever hold the role of Master of the Mint?
2011 WWF 50p
Coming in very close second, is the WWF 50p.
The Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) is the largest conservation organisation in the world.
They focus their work on saving endangered species and conserving the world’s most precious natural places.
In 2011, to mark their 50th anniversary, The Royal Mint issued this 50p coin.
It features 50 different icons to represent the variety of work they’re involved with.
2009 Kew Gardens 50p
In third spot, is the UK’s rarest 50p coin, the Kew Gardens.
Just 210,000 of these 50ps entered circulation, and over 13 years later, it’s still one of the most sought-after coins EVER.
It repeatedly takes top spot on our Scarcity Index, with collectors keen to add it to their collection.
However, it’s important to know the difference between a real, fake, or re-issued Kew Gardens.

So many great commemoratives and so many great events or organisations commemorated. However, I have to say the classic Britannia design is the best, even though I also really like most of the others!
The queen holds a place in my heart may she RIP with her true love
So many different choices to pick from floppy bunny 🐰 for her cuteness.
Lots of great designs but for me it’s gotta be the Newton 50p. Beautiful design for a coin.
The lowest mintage and still the best.
Eec dual date by far the best circulation coin far rarer the Kew gardens by a country mile .
Also cheaper to purchase .
If you don’t have one of these in your collection your collection is in complete.
D day there give use everything even tho there lost everything
Love the Clay pigeon shooting 50p coin ,next is the show jumping equestrian 50p
The 1994 D-Day coin is the best circulating 50p and the reason I got into collecting
Dual Fate By Far The Nicest 50p Made
Fat Fingers Should Have Said Dual Date 🙈😂
The nhs every single person who works In the nhs is amazing they looked after our loved ones during the pandemic and was there at the end when no-one else could be there.
It was hard to choose between Suffragettes and WWF. I plumpled for WWF in the end, so much detail in a small space. My least favourite has to be the 70th Jubilee 50p, I think the Queen deserved a much better design than that.
I’ve been collecting for years and my favourite has alway been the 1994 D Day landings! So good they re-released it in 2019 😍
Just lovely 🥰
Find it hard but love all the Olimpic coins
the detailing in this coin and the design which is a geometrical mathermatic treat to the arts world
Always loved the Stories of Beatrix Potter.. So has to be Jemima Puddle Duck for Me!
As a gay woman it’s nice to see it produced in a monetary perspective brilliant idea
So many to choose from,But only one to vote.
My vote goes to………..
NHS, they deserve so much and where would we be Without Them….
Paddington at the palace (something I will not see again rip her majesty)
so many nice coins, i voted for Ironside, WWF also worth a mention
After the the Kew it would be the Olympics I now got 3 full sets and a set missing just 2. I voted for the Kew just because its took me so long to find one in the wild that was until about 2 weeks ago when I found one in my Friday £250 50p coin hunt, still keep looking at it with a daft smile on my face.🙂😯🙂😯🙂
Isaac Newton all the way. Absolutely stunning coin
Diversity built Britain, because it true !
Newton is my favourite
Never to be forgotten beautiful coin.
I currently own every different tails side 50p ever to be minted on behalf of United Kingdom, it’s territories amd dependencies ( all 453 of them ) My vote goes to the original Kew Gardens
D DAY. A REALLY GOOD COIN.
Wwf is cool but Kew is great, have 1 for sale any interest email [email protected]
The greatest design for me has to be D-Day.
Without a shadow of a doubt has to be WWF 🙂
Never to be forgotten beautiful coin
Always will be the NHS for saving my life multiple times!
The NHS do something good work and try to look after us all, this has to be my favourite.
All good to me
World animals, love them
