More about the European Union 50p

These special edition 50p coins were issued in 1998 to commemorate the United Kingdom’s entry into the European Economic Community in 1973. Marking 25 years of the United Kingdom’s membership and its six-month Presidency of the European Union.

Since then, the fifty pence has become the ‘European’ coin, chosen again in 1992/93 to mark two further historic European Union events; the United Kingdom’s Presidency of the Council of Ministers and the completion of the Single European Market.

Leaving the EU doesn’t make the coin rarer. The value would remain about the same.
