The Royal Mint has just launched their latest initiative and this one looks like it could well prove very popular indeed! The idea is that the public are to design 29 new reverses for the 50p piece - these coins will then be issued, one a month starting in March next year. the "general" public have been invited to design 27 of the coins with one being designed specifically by secondary schoolchildren, the other by viewers of Blue Peter.

If you're interested you can get more details from the website Royal Mint Competition

But hurry - the closing date in April 29 2009.....!!
