This is the 2020 Diversity Built Britain Fifty Pence Coin.
The coin is struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish and comes in a presentation folder.
Designed by Dominique Evans, the coin not only celebrates diversity within the UK, but also the The Royal Mint's intent to be more inclusive with future releases.
Commissioned by Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sanuk, the coin is meant to symbolise the fair representation of minority communities’ contributions across all walks of life.
Boris Johnson explained the coin "echoes the government’s commitment to building a fairer society for all".
2.5 million of the coins are due to enter circulation - this does not include these Brilliant Uncirculated issues.
The obverse was designed by artist, Jody Clark. It is the fifth coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The text reads:
2020 · ELIZABETH · II · D · G · REG · D · F · 50 · PENCE
The reverse was designed by the Royal Mint designer, Dominique Evans. It shows a geodome in the background, with equal sections. This is meant to represent connection and strength. The text reads:
DIVERSITY BUILT BRITAIN
Dominique Evans said about the coins, "the background of the coin features a geodome with a series of interconnecting lines and triangles that form a network. Each part is equal, and symbolises a community of connection and strength."
