2023 Windrush 50p Brilliant Uncirculated Coin
On 21 June 1948, a ship called HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury in Essex after arriving from Jamaica.
It carried 1,027 passengers, 802 of which were British subjects, including men, women and children, who gave their last country of residence as somewhere in the Caribbean, travelling to the United Kingdom hoping to start a new life. Marking the date of disembarkation, Windrush Day takes place on 22 June each year.
Adorning the reverse of this commemorative UK 50p coin, Valda Jackson’s design depicts two people of the Windrush generation, smartly dressed, as many who arrived on the ship were, standing against a backdrop of the Union flag. The image is one of unity, representing the bond between the UK and the Commonwealth citizens who helped rebuild the country in its time of need.
