Quote from: Alan71 on January 06, 2018, 12:59:16 AMI'm not sure I like the idea of the existing Britannia design being amended. Scouting is nothing to do with Britannia. If there was to be a Scouting 50p, it should have been a new design.
Quote from: Alan71 on January 06, 2018, 12:59:16 AMThis is clearly an indication of why there were no 50p commemoratives between the 1973 EEC one and the EC one of 1992/93. Clearly the EEC/EC/EU was acceptable to commemorate, as three of the first four commemorative 50p coins did just that.

Quote from: Alan71 on January 06, 2018, 04:01:37 PMAnother issue I have with this is that 1982 introduced the amended Britannia design, and "Fifty" replaced "New". A commemorative at the same time might have caused some confusion - people not aware of what the scout symbol was might have thought it was part of the amended design.I actually quite like version 3 as it's the most subtle of the three, but none of them are that clear on what they're commemorating. I suppose that follows the 1973 example - a ring of hands wasn't really in any way obvious that it was commemorating the UK's entry into the EEC.
