Elizabeth II, 50 Pence (Suffragette) 2003 Piedfort Sterling Silver
In 2003 the Royal Mint honoured the 100th anniversary of the Suffragette Movement 1903-2003 with a special commemorative Fifty Pence Piece. The Fifty Pence is our most popular and most collected denomination. You have a Suffragette chained to a fence with a poster that reads ‘Give Women the Vote’. Despite a very popular denomination, the mintages are very low for this issue. They only made 6,267 in Sterling Silver Proof and 6,795 in Piedfort Sterling Silver. Each coin comes in a protective capsule that allows you to see both sides without having to handle the coins. One issue of the 50p coins that is overlooked by collectors and cataloguers.
