More about the Royal Shield 50p
This 50p coin design was part of a winning competition entry by Matthew Dent from Bangor in Wales. Six designs from the 1p through to the 50p coin can be pieced together to form a complete image of the Royal Shield of Arms.
The Royal Shield is the second most common 50p in circulation, only outnumbered by the Britannia which it replaced in 2008.

What about 2017 mintage??
Well spotted Sergio, i’ve added it in.
How can we find out how many 50p Shield coins were produced for Annual Year sets but never went into general circulation, for the years 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2016?
I have a 2017
I have the 2019 coin of this what about that one?
I have a 2008 & a 2012
Is this coin supposed to have a “50 pence” denomination on it, as I have a 2015 one just there is no denomination. And is the portrait by J.C as that’s what I have on mine?
I have 2017 one
What about 2018 / 2019 mintage
I have a coin 50 pence 2014 is it worth anything
It’s worth 50p
I have a 2013 one. Anyone know its value
Estimated value are shown at the top of the page (next to the big coin image).
I have seen the estimate where can I go to get it valued ? I live in lancashire
The 2015 50p coin two different portraits issued is the earlier one worth more ?
