1992 - 1993 Fifty Pence Gold Proof - EU Presidency

Great Britain's EU Presidency 1992 - 1993

To commemorate the United Kingdom's Presidency of the Council of Ministers during the second half of 1992 and the completion of the Single European Market which comes into effect on 1st January 1993, the Royal Mint issued a limited quantity of gold proof fifty pence coins.

Obverse - Third Portrait

The obverse bears the elegant portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf


Collectors will recall the commemorative fifty pence pieces of 1973 issued to mark Britain's entry into the European Economic Community. It is particularly appropriate, therefore, that in 1992 the fifty pence should be chosen to bear the historic design symbolising the special bond between the twelve members of the European Community.
This beautifully worked design, by sculptor Mary Milner Dickens, features a conference table seen from above, around which are arranged twelve chairs for the Council of Ministers. The United Kingdom is prominently represented at the head of the table with the table itself showing twelve stars, symbols of the European Community, placed in the geographic positions of the capital cities of the twelve member countries. A network of lines uniting the stars signifies the links of trade and commerce within the Community.
