Buy the 1992/1993 European Presidency Gold Proof Fifty Pence Coin.
This gold proof fifty pence was issued to commemorate Great Britain's Presidency of the Council of Ministers during the second half of 1992 and the completion of the Single European Market, which came into effect on 1st January 1993.
This coin has some small scratches and minor scuffing on the obverse. Please contact us for further details.
This was the first time a gold proof seven sided 50p coin had been issued by the Royal Mint. Collectors may recall the commemorative fifty pence pieces of 1973 issued to mark Britain's entry into the European Economic Community. It is particularly appropriate, therefore, that in 1992 the fifty pence should be chosen to bear the historic design symbolising the special bond between the twelve members of the European Community.
The obverse bears the third UK coin portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf.
Designed by sculptor Mary Milner Dickens, the reverse features a conference table seen from above, around which are arranged twelve chairs for each of the Council of Ministers. The United Kingdom is prominently represented at the head of the table. The table itself shows twelve stars placed in the geographic positions of the capital cities of the twelve member countries, symbolising the European Community. A network of lines uniting the stars signifies the links of trade and commerce within the Community.
