The Royal Mint is to strike a spe­cial proof set of 50p coins, 50 years after they first dropped into Bri­tain’s pock­ets and purses. The new is­sue in­cludes seven-siders mark­ing Roger Ban­nis­ter’s four-minute mile, 100 years of the Scouts and 100 years of the Girl Guides. An­other coin re­pro­duces the Kew Gar­dens 50p of 2009 – es­pe­cially col­lectable be­cause only 210,000 were minted.
