The 50p coin without a denomination

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, the Royal Mint issued a Brilliant Uncirculated 50p coin which quickly earnt recognition in the collecting world.

The 50p was issued early in 2015 and was quickly dubbed an "error" coin. The coins had been struck without the denomination in either numbers or writing anywhere on the Brilliant Uncirculated 50p coin. 

The reverse design of this commemorative 50p depicts three airmen scrambling towards their planes.

Designed by Gary Breeze, the coin features the 4th portrait of Queen Elizabeth by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS.
