To commemorate the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, Pobjoy Mint has issued a commemorative 50p coin on behalf of the Falkland Islands. The coin is available for pre-order in copper-nickel diamond finish with an issue limit of 2,700 pieces and in silver proof with an issue limit of 170 pieces. The piece depicts on its reverse the Mary Gillick portrait alongside Pobjoy Mint's own portrait of H.M. the Queen. Orders will be sent out from June 20.

It appears that the coin has not been gazetted yet, as of 14 June.

It is interesting how the piece issued for the Platinum Jubilee differs from the one issued for her death. Not only the dates were inserted but also the portraits are significantly smaller on the latter piece. This in contrary to the product images that were used for the coin to commemorate her death, which depict large portraits.
