In 1969, the 50p was first introduced to British purses and pockets as a part of decimalisation. The unique and modern 50p was a huge change from the shillings and pence that went before it.
2019 marks 50 years since this significant change in British coinage. During this time, the 50p has become one of the most collected coins, featuring many different commemorative designs.
