EXCLUSIVE DESIGN REVEAL: THE UK’s FIRST ROYAL 50P

In just 70 days the Queen will be celebrating her Platinum Jubilee. Her Majesty the Queen has confirmed that it will be celebrated with the nation’s FIRST EVER Royal 50p coin.

The design has been revealed today, and it certainly is something to look forward to

The new design features the all-important number ‘70’, representing the 70 years that the Queen has been our Sovereign.

The Royal Proclamation has confirmed that the nation’s FIRST Royal 50p will be issued in a range of specifications (including Platinum, Gold, Silver and of course Cupro-nickel).

We’re really hoping that we’ll see these 50p coins in circulation, and we’re expecting serious collector demand rivalling that seen in 1977 and 2002.

And that’s not all!

Intriguing alternative Queen’s head design

It has also been confirmed there will be an exciting alternative Queen’s Head design.

For now, that design still remains TOP SECRET, but we do know that it’s going to portray Her Majesty on horseback, in what appears to be a nod to her original 1953 Coronation Crown

The Christmas baking tradition you don’t want to miss out on

Did you know that, traditionally, the Christmas pudding mixture is stirred from East to West in homage to the three wise men?

This is just one of the traditions unique to the Christmas pudding, which is as steeped in history as it is brandy!

Christmas puddings are traditionally made on Stir-up Sunday – and with this year’s taking place on 21st November you’ll want to read on to find out how to make your Christmas pudding extra special.

 Stir-up Sunday

Stir-up Sunday falls on the last Sunday before the Christian Advent begins – that’s 4 weeks before Christmas Day. The term ‘Stir-up Sunday’ originates from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer: ‘Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people.’

So, why is the Christmas pudding whipped up long before the big day? Well, the idea is that enough time will pass for the pudding to mature and for the spices to infuse – yummy!

Making a Christmas pudding can be hard work, and during the Victorian era the whole family would get involved. While stirring the mixture of fruit, flour, brandy and spices, each family member would make a wish.

Some families threw a piece of silver – traditionally a sixpence – into the mix, which is thought to bring luck and wealth to whoever received it on Christmas Day.

Perhaps this is something you’d like to try with your family this year. Let us know in the comments if you’ll be participating in Stir-up Sunday and what you’d wish for.
