The 50p coin began circulation in 1969. Its size has since become smaller and, over the years, many special issues of the 50p coin have come and gone.

Among the popular special issues for the 50 pence coin include the WWF 50-year celebration coin, the London 2012 coins, the Girlguiding and Scouting movement anniversary coins and the 50th anniversary of the D-Day landing coins.
