I am wondering if anyone knows of or collects coins related to LGBTQ+ / Gay Rights.

So far I am only aware of 3 legit coins:
Canada $1 from 2019
Canada $10 from 2019
Upcoming UK 50p (coming July 2022?)

I have found tokens, but am only interested in legal tender.

Any other coins around?

Not my cup of tea.
I don't collect any World commemorative coin after about 1950.

Being openly and proudly gay, I would.

Anyway to buy these fabulous coins?

Pride has spread to stamps recently with many liberal countries issuing Rainbow community themed issues in the past 10 - 15 years, but coins are a bit slower on the uptake.

I am also interested in how many Gay Men and Women collect coins out of interest and of course everyone else in the community too. I honestly think I am the only one on this site at times.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

You'll forgive me, of course, but this is the lowest topic for collecting.
I think even in liberal countries, society is still hostile to LGBT people. But thank you, it turns out that some countries have already started issuing coins, this is a bold step.

Canada has a very strong LGQT community, I am friends with many people in the community. My fiance is bi so I have always gone to the parade with her to show support. I believe we came out with our first circulation issue LGBT coin in 2009 as a loonie. I got one in my change today actually, and I have seen people colour the loonie to make it into a piece of art. I'm not aware if there is any other circulation issue LGBT coin in any other country. Here I can't even remember the full name if the community lol last time I checked it was literally LGBQTY?21, can't even tell you what it all stands for.

That's quite an eye appealing design imo, the Canadian loonie looks better when it's painted like some of the art pieces iv seen.
