1973 EEC Clasped Hands 50p Circulated Coin
The 1973 50p piece was the very first commemorative coin since decimalisation.
It was introduced to celebrate the UK's accession to the European Economic Community. It features nine hands clasping each other in a circle, symbolising the nine member states of the community. David Wynne designed the coin, and it is intended to represent the trust, assistance and friendship which comes with EEC membership.
At a weight of 13.5g, this coin is the last of the larger style 50p coins commemorating an historic event.
