2022 50 Year Of Pride Fifty Pence Coloured Silver Proof Coin

UK22PSPC 2022 50 Year Of Pride Fifty Pence Coloured Silver Proof Coin Boxed
£90.00
The Royal Mint issued a special set of rainbow-coloured 50 Pence coins in 2022 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the pride movement in the United Kingdom. The first official gay pride rally occurred in July 1972 and was attended by roughly 2,000 people, and by 2022 it had evolved to becoming a mass celebration of the LGBTQ community, attracting over 1.5 million people to London. Today the event is organised by Pride in London, the successor to the previous organisations which organised the pride rally in London. This organisation which advocates for LGBTQ rights has teamed up with the Royal Mint to issue a set of commemorative 50p coins, with this one being the silver proof version. It weighs 8.00 grams, measures 27.30 millimetres in diameter and contains 0.2379 troy ounces of pure silver. LGBTQ artist and writer Dominique Holmes designed the colourful reverse of the coin, and she places the slogans associated with Pride in London: 'PRIDE', 'PROTEST', 'VISIBILITY', 'UNITY', and 'EQUALITY' alongside rainbows with the pride progression flag. On the other side of the sterling silver coin, Jody Clark has designed the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Both sides are struck several times during production, which gives the 0.925 fine Fifty Pence coin a glittering proof finish, which is the perfect standard for coin collectors. Included is a protective capsule in which the coin is encased, which is in turn housed in a black presentation box. Original, rainbow-coloured Royal Mint packaging is also offered as standard, making it the perfect gift.
