More about the Girl Guides 50p

These special edition 50p coins were issued in 2007 to commemorate 100th years of the Scouting movement.

The Scouting movement was started in 1907 by Lord Robert Baden-Powell at an experimental camp on Brownsea Island in Dorset. Baden-Powell was a decorated soldier, talented artist and free-thinker who believed in teaching boys practical outdoor skills with activities. The words ‘Be prepared’ feature on the design of this commemorative 50p as this became the well known motto of the scouting movement.
