The coin celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first British Pride in London was simultaneously issued in several variants. One of them is the limited edition piedfort numismatic coin, which you can order in Poland via the numismatic online shop Coins From World. Find out why this coin is special to both the numismatic community and the entire LGBTQ+ community.
Piedforts are special coins that are distinguished by their non-standard thickness and therefore greater than usual weight. They are nowadays minted for collectors who appreciate diversity. Speaking of diversity, 2022 marks the 50th anniversary of Britain’s first Pride parade. It’s a special moment for the entire LGBTQ+ community, which has been honoured with commemorative coins for the first time in the history of The Royal Mint of Great Britain.
It is worth noting that the design of the coin makes interesting use of the characteristic and symbolic rainbow motif. Slogans important to the whole idea behind Pride events have been placed on the moment in a retro style reminiscent of the 1970s. What is important for collectors, the 50 Years of Pride Piedforts come in limited mintage.
