Comments

There were three distinct types issued for the 2015 Battle of Britain commemorative featuring three different obverses, two different compositions, with just one type being struck for circulation.

The 2019 issues were not struck for circulation and formed part of the 5-coin British Military set celebrating 50 years of the 50p.
