When Roger Bannister ran a mile in less than four minutes in May 1954 it was not merely a remarkable sporting achievement, it was a triumph of the human spirit.
This SILVER Proof edition 50p represents the 50th Anniversary of Roger Bannister's achievement in breaking the four minute mile. The reverse design does not focus on the man himself, but features a symbolic design of running a race with the stopwatch to symbolise the timeframe.
Encapsulated and housed in the original Royal Mint box with the Certificate of Authenticity, this is a limited edition coin from the Royal Mint.
