About This Design
As one of the nation’s best loved and respected organisations, WWF holds a special place in the hearts of animal and nature lovers alike. 50 years after it was launched, WWF was tackling much more than the conservation of endangered species and their habitats; they were battling environmental problems across the world. The 50p was created by award-winning graphic designer Matthew Dent.
Matthew said: ‘I wanted to design a selection of stylised icons to represent the various facets of WWF that would be recognisable when fitted onto the coin’s face. Peer closely and you’ll see mammals, birds, fish, insects and lizards, fruit, seeds, trees and plants, and icons representing the human impact’.
