Representation of the People Act 50p Coin Design

The First World War cost the lives of millions of men who answered the call to fight for their country.

Amazingly these brave men did not have the right to vote at home. The women who kept the country running through their jobs in farming, munitions factories, and coal mines were also not entitled to vote.
Reform had to come. The Representation of the People Act 1918 gave voting rights to women over 30, who met minimum property qualifications, and all men over 21.
It was a landmark step on the road to equal representation and to the rights we enjoy today. This UK 50p coin marks the centenary of the Act, available now in a range of special editions including BUNC, Silver, and Gold coins.
