For the VERY FIRST TIME, a UK coin has been released in celebration of Pride, marking the historic 50th anniversary of Pride UK.

The Royal Mint have worked collaboratively with Pride in London to issue this 50p coin which is available to own in our Capsule Edition.

Pride UK unites communities nationwide in a colourful celebration of positivity and solidarity which has been portrayed authentically on the reverse of this BRAND NEW coin.

Excitingly, 5 million 2022 UK 50 Years of Pride 50p coins will be entering circulation, which is fantastic news for collectors!

The Design

The reverse features an original design by artist, writer, and LGBTQ+ activist Dominique Holmes (They/Them) highlighting London’s values of Protest, Visibility, Unity and Equality whilst displaying the Progress Pride flag. The Progress Pride flag celebrates the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community and iconic colourful rainbows sit above it.

Dominique Holmes has said “I really hope it connects with people and reminds them what the movement is all about.”

Superior Brilliant Uncirculated Quality

Struck to that all important superior Brilliant Uncirculated Quality, your 2022 UK 50 Years of Pride BU 50p comes without the scratches and marks you would find on circulating coinage. This is the finish preferred most by collectors as the coins are polished and finished by hand.

Considering this is the first time Pride has been celebrated on a UK coin, we’re sure this 50p is going to be very popular with collectors. Don’t miss out – order yours today!

The Royal Mint will make a contribution of £40,000 to London LGBT Community Pride C.I.C in connection with this campaign.
