The 50p coin is perhaps Britain’s most popular coin, thanks mainly to the range of commemorative designs issued over the years.

Whilst some coin collectors have been adding British pieces, including 50p coins, to their collections for many years, for many modern coin enthusiasts the fascination with checking our change began in 2011 as the country counted down to the London Olympic Games. In an unprecedented move, The Royal Mint released 29 50p coins into circulation, representing different sports set to take place in the capital the following year.

Buoyed by the nation’s excitement of hosting the Olympics, the triumphant opening ceremony, and the popularity of almost all the events, the 50p coins quickly became small souvenirs of the sporting celebration, and the hunt was on to find them all.

Since then, 50p coins have enjoyed a growing popularity, with The Royal Mint releasing commemorative versions to mark events and anniversaries as varied as the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, the books of Beatrix Potter and the work of Sir Isaac Newton.
