About This Design
Entries from the dictionary for the words FIFTY and PENCE, with the figure ’50’ above, and the inscription JOHNSON’S DICTIONARY 1755 below.

Greeted with joy and great relief in the English intellectual world, Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary was published in 1755. 250 years later, the dedicated scholar was honoured with a commemorative fifty pence coin. Aptly enough, the detailed reverse by Tom Phillips shows Johnson’s explanation for fifty pence, while the obverse features the portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley, FRBS.
