Comments

First issued for circulation as well as part of the Annual Coin Sets for 1994, in both Brilliant Uncirculated & Proof versions as well as in an individual BU pack (no sales data), it was also struck in silver proof, silver piedfort and gold proof.


The design was reissued in copper-nickel in 2009 with Ian Rank Broadley's fourth portrait in the 16-piece sets to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 50 pence denomination, then again in 2019 with Jody Clark's fifth portrait, forming part of the 5-coin British Military set celebrating 50 years of the 50p.
