What is the Blue Peter 50p?

Blue Peter 50p coin was issued in 2009 ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The design is by a competition winner on the Blue Peter TV show, chosen from 17,000 competition entries.

Nine-year-old Florence Jackson, from Bristol, is the first child ever to work with the Royal Mint to design a UK coin.

Florence won the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to design a coin celebrating London 2012 by taking part in a Blue Peter competition.

Florence Jackson said:

I am so excited. It was a real surprise to win. I’d never entered a Blue Peter competition before but really wanted to take part because I love drawing. I chose high-jump because I’d watched it on TV before and thought it looked fun. It was amazing to visit the Royal Mint and see my picture turned into a coin. I can’t wait to see it in my pocket money!

Florence’s design for the Blue Peter 50p Winner’s Edition coin is only the 17th design to appear on the UK’s 50p.

As an official Licensed Product of London 2012, the Blue Peter 50p Winner’s Edition coin features the London 2012 logo.
