This week, the main focus is on the Royal Mint celebrating 50 years since the launch of the 50p coin by revealing the rarest 50p coins ever made.
The first 50p coin was introduced on 14 October 1969. Made in the shape of a heptagon, it was the world’s first seven-sided coin. The initial reaction to it was mixed – one newspaper at the time called it “a monstrous piece of metal”.
The coin was introduced as part of a process called decimalisation. This is when a currency is changed to be based around multiples of 10 or 100.
Students will learn all about this history.
