Will this coin be in circulation?
On the 21st January, The Royal Mint announced that this coin will be entering circulation and available from UK Post Offices from 6th February 2022. Read our news article for all the details.
The Platinum Jubilee 50p coin design is the work of design agency Osborne Ross. They are no strangers to numismatic design as the same agency recently produced the commemorative coin design for the John Logie Baird 50p coin.
We wanted to design a coin which had both elegance and gravitas to reflect such an historic occasion. It was felt that a purely typographic solution would convey the dignity of the event and, through our choice of typeface, the grace and grandeur of our monarch.
The typeface Didot was selected for the exquisite contrast of its thick and thin [lines], together with the beautiful teardrop shape on the number 7. We worked closely with the [Product] Design department at The Royal Mint, using their expertise to add nuance and subtle modelling to the concept and bring it alive as an object to treasure.
Andrew Ross, Osborne Ross Design Ltd. (Designer of the Platinum Jubilee 50p) Co-designed by Andrew Ross and Deborah Osborne. This is why the coin bears the initials AR (Andrew Ross) and DO for Deborah Osborne.
