Who designed this coin?
As known as the High Jump 50p coin, nine-year-old Florence Jackson is the first-ever child to design a Royal Mint UK coin.
She won this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in 2009 after taking part in a Blue Peter competition. The Blue Peter carded version is worth hundreds of pounds.
