The Royal Mint has unveiled the design of a new commemorative 50p to mark Her Majesty the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, which is the first 50p to celebrate a royal event

The design has been revealed 70 days ahead of the anniversary of the Queen's Accession on 6 February 1952, featuring the number 70 and the royal cypher on a 50p coin

The 50p is the first reveal as part of one of the largest collections ever made by The Royal Mint to celebrate the historic occasion

Each coin in the Platinum Jubilee range, launching in 2022, will feature a special commemorative obverse design. Collectors can register their interest now at The Royal Mint website.



The Royal Mint has unveiled the design of a new 50p which will be issued in 2022 to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. It is the first time that a royal event has been celebrated on the tails side of a fifty pence, with a design that has been personally approved by the Queen.

Trusted by monarchs for 1,100 years, The Royal Mint has struck circulating coins for the Queen throughout her reign and celebrated royal milestones, including the Silver, Gold and Diamond Jubilees, on a collection of commemorative crown pieces. The unique Platinum Jubilee 50p is a fitting tribute to a remarkable reign and will be available as a collectable coin in early 2022.

Marking 70 days to go until the anniversary of the Queen's accession to the throne in 1952, The Royal Mint has unveiled imagery of the new design. The coin will feature the number 70, representing the number of years on the throne, and the Queen's cypher framed within the zero, at the heart of the design.

Clare Maclennan, Divisional Director of Commemorative Coin at The Royal Mint, said:

" The Royal Mint has a proud history of striking coins for British monarchs and 2022 sees one of the greatest celebrations of Her Majesty the Queen with the upcoming Platinum Jubilee.

"Marking 70 days until the anniversary of the Queen's Accession to the throne, The Royal Mint is delighted to reveal the commemorative Platinum Jubilee 50p design ahead of its launch in the new year.

"In recognition of the landmark occasion, this is the first time a royal milestone has been commemorated on a 50p coin and is a fitting celebration for Britain's longest reigning monarch."

New and current collectors can register their interest now for the Platinum Jubilee 50p, which will feature a special commemorative obverse design, at The Royal Mint.

The bespoke Platinum Jubilee obverse will be unveiled in 2022 across one of the largest collections made by The Royal Mint, which will also include a commemorative 5 crown.

According to another source, the coin will come out in difference obverse....

https://blog.westminstercollection....t-royal-50p/

"It has also been confirmed there will be an exciting alternative Queen's Head design.

For now, that design still remains TOP SECRET, but we do know that it's going to portray Her Majesty on horseback, in what appears to be a nod to her original 1953 Coronation Crown"

So I am sure if there are going to two versions of the coins - one with the standard or the special obverse or just the one version.

At first I thought it was the Queen's reaction to the prototype ink-printed crown the RM has planned for Charles' accession to the throne.

The Platinum coin is nice, the Charlie is horrid.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
