Elizabeth II, 50 Pence Libraries, 2000 Piedfort
Issued by the Royal Mint in 2000, this commemorative 50 Pence piece honoured the 150th anniversary of Public Libraries. It was never given the publicity it deserved and many collectors do not have one in their collections. Each coin is complete in its own case, with certificate just as it was issued by the Royal Mint. Illustrated here is the Piedfort Sterling Silver Proof of the Library 50p.
