50p celebrates the Girl Guides

100 years of the Girl Guides is the theme for the 2010 50 pence - interestingly two designers initials appear on the rather simple reverse - we're not quite sure why it needed two people to come up with the fetching but fairly straightforward  design but it seems that that is the case with Jonathan Evans and Donna Hainan both being credited with the work.


We're also not sure just how many of these 50pences will actually ever be seen - after all the standard design will still have to be issued (otherwise the shield will be incomplete) and of course we start the 2012 Olympic 50p issue in April. The UK will, it seems, be awash with new 50 pences next year!
