United Kingdom 50 pence 2022 - 50 years of Pride - LGBTQ+

New commemorative to be released this summer:

"50 years of Pride - LGBTQ+"

The Royal Mint has revealed a commemorative 50p celebrating the 50th anniversary of Pride UK. This coin marks the first time Britain's LGBTQ+ community has been celebrated on official UK coinage, and forms part of The Royal Mint's wider commitment to diversity and inclusion.

The coin has been designed by Dominque Holmes, an east London artist, writer, and LGBTQ+ activist with a varied artistic background that includes tattoo artistry. The coin design features Pride in London's values of Protest, Visibility, Unity, and Equality in rainbows. With state-of-the-art colour printing technology, the iconic colours of the Pride progression flag are recreated with special-edition colour versions of the silver and BU coins.
