Royal Mint Product Description:Commemorating the work of an internationally important cultural icon Benjamin Britten - the great composer

Individually inspected for quality, this sterling silver proof coin is struck up to three times to show every detail in breathtaking sharpness. It sets two numismatic precedents, being the first time that a composer has featured on any UK coin, and the first time a 50p coin has both date and denomination on the obverse.

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Benjamin Britten, the 50p was developed with the Britten-Pears Foundation. Designed by Royal Academician Tom Phillips CBE it shows words by the poet Tennyson which Britten set to music in 'Serenade'.
