100 Years of Democracy for All

The  limited edition Royal Mint silver Proof 50p coin that marks the 100th anniversary of the Act that reformed our right to vote in Britain.

Designed by Stephen Taylor, the obverse of the coin features a line of people queuing (that quintessential staple of British culture), waiting to cast their votes. A woman, a soldier, a working-class man and a suffragette represent different societal classes finally awarded a voice in the political arena after years of painful struggle. The design was inspired by posters from the period.

The reverse features the fifth coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark. 

Struck in .925 silver, this coin features Taylor's initials and is strictly limited.

The 1918 Representation of the People Act 

The Act, passed in February 1918, granted property-owning women over the age of 30 and all men over the age of 21 the right to vote. Although much progress was still to be made, it marked a watershed moment in the enfranchisement of British citizens, and was a huge victory for freedom and democracy.
