New Royal Mint 50p Coin Celebrates British Diversity

A new fifty pence coin minted by the Royal Mint seeks to embrace all elements of diversity in Britain.

The Reverse, designed by Royal Mint graphic designer Dominique Evans, shows a series of interconnecting lines and triangles that form a network in a geodome creating the symbol of connections and strength together. The inscription is: DIVERSITY BUILT BRITAIN.

Dominique Evans has already designed some well known coins, such as the Queen Elizabeth’s Sapphire Coronation,  the 2017 life and work of Jane Austen coin, and the commemorative coin for Victory in Europe (VE) Day.

The seven-sided 50 pence coin has a diameter of 27.30mm. It is minted in cupro-nickel as a BU finish, and also as Silver Proof, Silver Proof Piedfort, Gold Proof and Gold Proof Piedfort.

The coins are available from the Royal Mint Shop.

The Silver 50p version has a silver weight of 8g and the limited edition is 25,000. The Silver Proof Piedfort edition is limited to 2,500.
