A new 50p coin is being released today (February 7) to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The head features Her Majesty on a horse, while the tail shows the number 70 to commemorate her years in the monarch.
It was designed by artists Osborne Ross and Jody Clark as it’s the first 50p to mark a royal event.
Around 1.3million coins are being made available on “limited release” at UK Post Offices from Monday.
Its maximum mintage of the coins has been fixed at 5,000,070, in a further tribute to the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
Post Offices in Windsor and close to Sandringham were among the first places to receive the new coin.

Colin Bellamy, who runs the Coin Hunter website, said it will not be “super rare” but likely to be worth a lot, reports Mirror.
He said: “It will be collectable and command a value more than face for a few weeks.
“As more people find them in circulation, it is likely that they will become a face value coin long term.”
Meanwhile postmaster Umesh Sanghani, who runs Dedworth Green Post Office, said many have come in for the “special” coin.
He added: “They don’t want to miss out on this souvenir. I am a Royalist.
“It is amazing that the Queen has reached her 70th anniversary. I am really looking forward to the celebrations this year.”
The coin will come a whopping seven decades after Her Majesty’s accession to the throne in 1952.
Trusted by monarchs for 1,100 years, the Royal Mint has struck circulating coins for The Queen throughout her reign.
To be in with the chance of receiving the new 50p, a Post Office customer will need to purchase a product or service at the branch.
