The Representation of the People Act 1918 permitted more men to vote, consisting of those over 19 who served in the military. Crucially, it provided ladies over 30 'of home' the right to vote for the very first time, and paved the way for equivalent representation in 1928. 100 years later we recognise its influence on our lives today with this official UK 50p Piedfort coin with a style by Royal Mint coin designer Stephen Taylor. The coin is struck in double the width of sterling silver as the basic 50p coin and comes with a booklet that informs the story of the Act and the individuals behind it.

Today we take the right to vote for granted. Just over 100 years earlier, prior to the break out of the First World War, that right was held by a narrow area of society; just 60% of male householders over the age of 21.
