£50 (Half) Britannia 17.025 .917 15.552 613.75

The £50 (Half) Britannia contains one half a troy ounce of fine gold. It is slightly smaller than the ounce Britannia. You can generally find this coin as part of a set.

As with all the other Britannia coins, one side contains the image of the current Monarch. The other side contains the standing image of Britannia. This image was different during the minting years before 2000. In those years, Britannia was portrayed in a sitting position.

The £50 (Half) Britannia has a 27 millimeter diameter. It contains 15.5 grams of gold. The remainder of the weight consists of an alloy. Copper alloy was used from 1987 with its initial minting and circulation to 1989. Beginning in 1990, silver replaced copper as the alloy used.
