Wounded Soldier 50p Coin
The Wounded Soldier 50p piece is the second of the Victoria Cross commemorative coins released by The Royal Mint, back in 2006.
It celebrates soldier bravery and is also known as the Heroic Acts 50p coin. Around 10 million coins were issued.
The 2006 Soldier 50p depicts one soldier carrying another wounded soldier in his arms from the field of battle. In the background is the Victoria Cross shape with a sunburst surrounding it.
Marking the 150th Anniversary of the institution of the Victoria Cross this thought invoking coin was introduced into UK general circulation in 2006 as a British Coin. So you may find one in your coin change or piggy bank!
The other VC 50p coin shows more of the Victoria Cross Medal. We guess the Royal Mint could not choose between the 2 designs so decided to release both.
In addition, there were collectors editions of these coins issued with a dual coin boxed set being the most highly prized presentation of these coins.
