More about the Kew Gardens 50p

These very limited edition 50p coins were issued in 2009 to celebrate the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew. A UNESCO World Heritage Site which boasts 4.5 acres of gardens under glass as well as a soaring treetop walkway.

In 2009 the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew marked its 250th anniversary as a botanical garden and The Royal Mint was proud to join in the celebrations with a splendid commemorative design. The reverse design, created by Christopher Le Brun RA, features the famous Chinese Pagoda at Kew with a decorative leafy climber twining in and around the tower.

The Kew Gardens 50p hit the headlines in February 2014 when it was revealed as the most scarce 50p that is currently in circulation.
