Look what I got today!

Now I know I'm not the first person in the world to see a fifty pence piece like this but it's the first one I've seen so I thought I'd use it as today's 365 subject.

New. From today onwards I'll be including camera settings for anyone who's interested.

Olympus SP-500UZ; Auto; Macro2; Plain Tungsten Lighting.


  1. Cool, I ain't seen one like that either!

  2. wow! when did they do those 50ps?!

  3. 2007 Emma.

    I must research this coin further.

    I will post my findings here.

  4. As far as I can see, this coin is minted for use in Gibraltar, although has an identical value to a British mainland fifty pence piece.

    The Queen's head does appear on the other (obverse) side of the coin.
