UK Commemorative coins for 2020
« on: July 12, 2019, 01:15:15 PM »
In 2020, the Royal Mint will issue a commemorative 50p for Team GB on the Olympic Games. The coin will feature symbols depicting several olympic sports as well as the olympic rings and the Team GB logo.

A commemorative 2 pounds coin will be issued for the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower (ship).

A 5 pounds coin will be issued to commemorate George III. It will depict his portrait in a crowned cartouche as well as his royal cypher and floral emblems of the UK. It will also depict scenes associated with his life.

Another 5 pounds coin will be issued for the year of the rat. It will depict a rat and the Chinese lunar symbol for 'rat'.

Wow!  It will be nice to see a British coin for the quadricentennial of the Mayflower.  Having just received and opened my USA-Canada joint silver eagle and maple leaf set, I hope that some type of joint numismatic offering will be available between the USA and Great Britain next year. :)

I wonder how many Olympic sports symbols can be shown on a 50p coin?
