The Royal Mint has revealed a new rainbow-coloured 50p coin to mark the 50th anniversary of the UK Pride movement and said this will be the first time the LGBTQ+ community has been recognised on an official coin.

The new coin has been designed by east London artist and activist Dominique Holmes and includes the historic Pride progression flag, inscribed with Pride in London’s values of protest, visibility, unity, and equality in rainbows.

The Royal Mint said the colourful 50p coin will be available to buy this summer in a range of commemorative metals but will not enter general circulation.
