Clive Duncan's design was reproduced over 10 million times for this 2006 coin marking the 150th anniversary of the Victoria Cross medal.

A backlit shape of the Victoria Cross is the background from which a heroic soldier carries an injured colleague back to safety. The medal is given to mark extraordinary acts of valour and courage.

How much is the Soldier 50p worth?

A 50p coin created for UK circulation by The Royal Mint will always be worth at least 50p. The coin can be in pretty much any condition and a shop will accept it as face value payment.

When a coin is considered collectable by a large number of people, even if the coin was struck to be used in circulation - it's value to a collector will rise to more than face value. In 2009 a coin was struck to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Kew Gardens, with a low mintage of 210,000 coins for circulation, the Kew Gardens 50p now sells for about 140 times face value.

The Soldier 50p is worth £1.00 to a circulation coin collector taking part in The Great British Coin Hunt.
