The rights of LGBTQ+ people in Britain have faced considerable scrutiny in the last century, however, the community has come a long way and continues to shape political rights and social movements in the present day.
Celebrating the progress of Pride UK in inspiring today’s generations to be proud of their sexuality, this Unique Brilliant Uncirculated 2022 50p Coin is a special release that highlights the spirit of the LGBTQ+ community superbly.
In collaboration with Pride in London, The Royal Mint has formulated this striking release which portrays all Pride stands for, in intricate detail. Featured on the reverse of this stunning edition is a design created by artist and activist, Dominique Holmes, that represents the positivity and solidarity of the Pride movement.
Inspired by the original rainbow flag formulated by the artist Gilbert Baker in 1978, this Coin showcases illustrations of different rainbows highlighting the values of Pride UK: protest, visibility, unity, and equality.
Depicted on the obverse of this fantastic coin is Jody Clark’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, illustrating its legal tender status.
With this representing the first time the UK’s LGBTQ+ community has been celebrated on a UK coin, this is the ideal way to show your support for pride!
