About This Design

In 2013 this UK 50p celebrated the 100th anniversary of the birth of British composer Benjamin Britten. This unique coin was the first ever UK 50p to show both date and denomination on the obverse. Designed by artist Tom Phillips CBE RA, the coin features the uplifting words BLOW BUGLE BLOW and SET THE WILD ECHOES FLYING as well as the composer’s name in a stave, a reference to his virtuosity as a pianist and conductor.
