About This Design
A fleur-de-lis superimposed over a globe and surrounded by the inscription “BE PREPARED”, the dates “1907” and “2007”, and the denomination “FIFTY PENCE”.

To commemorate the centenary of the Scout Movement, The Royal Mint produced a special 50p coin. The success of the boys’ camp on Brownsea Island, organised by Robert Baden-Powell in the summer of 1907, laid a firm foundation for the worldwide movement that today offers adventure to young people of every culture and background. The reverse of the coin was designed by Royal Mint engraver Kerry Jones and appropriately features a globe, emphasising the growth of the Scout Movement, along with the familiar fleur-de-lis. The commemorative design is completed with the famous motto ‘Be Prepared’.
