From the Battle of Hastings to D-Day, epic battles have altered history’s path. Over the last 50 years, the 50p has been chosen to commemorate some of the most pivotal moments in military history, defining moments that every child still learns about in school.
As we celebrate 50 years of the 50p, this carefully curated set brings together all five military themed designs that have graced the coin: the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, the 50th anniversary of D-Day, the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and two coins commemorating the 150th anniversary of the creation of the Victoria Cross medal.
- 50 years encapsulated in a prestigious collection of 50p coins
- Mark a rare milestone moment for British coinage
- An ideal gift for a military history enthusiast
- Presented in packaging which complements the British Culture Set
- This set is the only way to own the 50th Anniversary of the D-Day 50p on a new 50 pence coin. On its initial release this coin would have been minted to the larger specification which changed to the size you find in your change today in 1997
