About This Design
A pair of hands set against a pattern of radiating lines with the words “FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY” and the value “50 PENCE”, accompanied by the initials “NHS” which appear five times on the outer border.

Monday 5 July 1948 saw a dream become reality for millions of people in the UK with the birth of the National Health Service and the advent of free medical care for all. To honour the 50th year of hard work and dedication of a vital institution, The Royal Mint struck this commemorative fifty pence. Symbolising the hope brought by the NHS, the design by David Cornell shows light radiating from cupped hands, complemented by its seven-sided frame.
