The 2022 Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Piedfort Proof silver 50p coin is one of several coins issued by The Royal Mint to honour the life and service of the late queen.
As with all coins in the range, the obverse (front) of the coin features Martin Jenning's portrait of King Charles III for the first time, making it a historic release. The reverse features a design created for the 1953 coronation crown designed by herald painter Edgar Fuller and modelled by Cecil Thomas.
This Proof fifty pence coin is struck in sterling silver (925) and weighs a total of 16g as a Piedfort (Double Thickness) coin. It is presented in a handsome presentation box and comes with a certificate of authenticity and full colour booklet.
