In 1992, a fifty pence coin was issued to commemorate the United Kingdom's Presidency of the European Community, and the completion of the Single European Market.
This is the first British coin to bear dual dates 1992 - 1993, rather than the normal single date.
The United Kingdom held the Presidency of the European Community during the second half of 1992.
The Single European Market came into effect on January 1st 1993.
The third portrait obverse design by Raphael Maklouf.
The beautifully worked reverse design, by sculptor Mary Milner Dickens, features a conference table seen from above, around which are arranged twelve chairs for the Council of Ministers.
The United Kingdom is prominently represented at the head of the table with the table itself showing twelve stars, symbols of the European Community, place in the geographic positions of the capital cities of the twelve member countries.
A network of lines uniting the stars signifies the links of trade and commerce within the Community.
