In 2014 Glasgow hosted the XX Commonwealth Games, the third time a Scottish venue has staged the Games. They will be a Games for all Scotland, the next chapter in Britain's great sporting decade, building on the excitement that gripped the nation of the London 2012 Olympic Games and continuing to create a lasting legacy for generations to come.
This is the third time that The Royal Mint has celebrated the Commonwealth Games on the coinage - in 1986 a £2 coin was issued, and in 2002 a set of four £2 coins. The design of the Glasgow 2014 Commonweath Games 50p was a result of great teamwork.
The coin carries a vibrant design by new coin designer Alex Loudon, the power of sport embodied in a cyclist and athlete, the home of the Games reflected in his choice of Scottish Saltire and lettering inspired by Glasgow-born architect, artist and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
