Coin Information:

This 50p was issued in 2021 to mark 50 years since Decimal Day – the day that marked a dramatic change to our UK’s coinage system. The Decimalisation campaign announced that pounds, shillings and pence would be replaced by a decimal currency, with a hundred units in a pound. This brand new 50p, designed by Dominique Evans, features overlapping pre-decimal coins in an ode to Decimal Day, with the date ‘1971’ at the centre of the design. The obverse design of this coin features the fifth portrait of HM QEII by Jody Clark.
