The 1918 50p coin released in 2018 is to commemorate the centenary of the Representation of the People Act of 1918.

The People Act granted the vote to women over the age of 30 who met a property qualification, plus the act gave the vote to all men over the age of 21 and servicemen over 19.

The 50p was designed by Stephen Taylor and features five men and women in line to vote, with a woman triumphantly raising a voting card.

Is it a rare coin?

With 9 million coins in general circulation, the 1918 50p is a very common coin to find in your pocket change. See our list of Rare 50p coins for a full list of the rarest coins.

What is the 1918 50p coin?

The Representation of the People Act 50p coin is a British coin that was issued by the Royal Mint in 2018 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act, which granted the right to vote to women over the age of 30 in the UK. The coin features a design of a woman’s suffrage banner on the front and a depiction of the Royal Coat of Arms on the back.

The Representation of the People Act 50p coin is not considered a particularly rare or valuable coin. It was issued in a fairly large edition of around 8 million coins, and it is not highly sought after by collectors. However, its value can still be influenced by factors such as its condition, demand, and the current market for collectible coins.

If you have a Representation of the People Act 50p coin in your possession, it is worth keeping in mind that it is a historic and significant coin that marks an important milestone in the history of democracy in the UK. However, it is not likely to be worth a significant amount of money.

What’s it worth?

If you are looking for the 1918 50p worth it is at face value in average condition and around £1 for a coin in excellent condition to a UK coin collector.

What is the Representation of the People Act?

The First World War cost the lives of millions of men who answered the call to fight for their country.

These brave men did not have the right to vote at home. The women who kept the country running through their jobs in farming, munitions factories, and coal mines were also not entitled to vote. Reform had to come.

The Representation of the People Act 1918 gave voting rights to women over 30, who met minimum property qualifications, and all men over 21.

It was a landmark step on the road to equal representation and to the rights we enjoy today.

This UK 50p coin marks the centenary of the Act, available now in a range of special editions.
