A rainbow 50p coin will be minted to mark the the 50th anniversary of the Pride movement in the UK.

The coin features Pride in London‘s values of Protest, Visibility, Unity, and Equality in rainbows with the Pride progression flag.

It has been designed by Dominque Holmes, an east London artist, writer, and LGBTQ+ activist.

This will be the first time the LGBTQ+ community has been celebrated on official UK coin.
