An announcement by Royal Proclamation has just confirmed that a 50p coin will be used to celebrate Her Majesty’s historic Platinum Jubilee.
Two Historic Firsts
As Britain’s most popular coin it seems only fitting that it marks the UK’s first ever Platinum Jubilee, even more so because it is the FIRST time EVER that a 50p will be used to mark a Royal celebration.
The Royal Proclamation has also given us some interesting clues as to what the design may feature, revealing intriguing details of two different obverse designs – one featuring the normal Queen’s head design and a second portraying Her Majesty on horseback, in what appears to be a nod to her original 1953 Coronation Crown.
