2020 Team GB 50p coin
The 2020 dated Team GB 50p has been issued to support Team GB who will be competing in the Tokyo Olympics.
Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Olympic Games have now been postponed until 2021. As a result, the 2020 dated coin will not be individually released and is only available within the 2020 Annual Coin Set.
Due to the huge interest in this coin, some coin collectors have purchased the coin set and separated this coin to sell it separately for a higher price.

Tokyo Olympics Coin
Ahead of the Games of the XXXII Olympiad in Tokyo, Team GB looked set to continue their winning ways in 2020. Sadly, the IOC was forced to postpone the 2020 Games due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, marking the first total postponement in the history of the Olympic Games.
Despite the rescheduling, the elite athletes of Team GB continue to push boundaries and maintain peak performance in the hopes of making history when the Games return.
In honour of this athletic excellence, Team GB have been immortalised with a 50p coin designed by Royal Mint designer David Knapton.
