I reckon the reverse of the Kew Gardens 50p represents the Tower of Babel as did the opening ceremony of the common wealth games over seen by Charley Boy.

I used to see a lot of stupid adverts online, about this or that coin now 'supposedly' being worth a fortune, but they seem to have dried up of late. Let me guess, someone had a few stashed away somewhere. 😀

I just found it quite coincidental that the Tower of Babel should be on one. 😁

New banknotes with King Charles III portrait instead of Queen Elizabeth II

The Bank of England has unveiled his portrait for the notes, taken from an original snap supplied by Buckingham Palace in 2013 - and then updated over the years since, as he aged. Charles, without a crown, will be on the front of all polymer notes - the £5, £10, £20 and £50 - with no other changes to existing designs. These new notes are due to enter circulation by mid-2024, with current ones featuring the late Queen remaining legal tender.

Is there anything to do with the building itself, which makes you think that it was meant to symbolise the Tower Of Babel?

Look at these two pictures, the bottom one represents the Tower Of Babel they were worshiping at the opening ceremony at the common wealth games in Birmingham over seen by Charley boy. Notice any resemblance ?

Not really. The coin is a pagoda from the famous botanical gardens in south west London.

Princess Augusta, widow of Frederick, Prince of Wales, established the botanic garden at Kew in 1759.

 

This maybe so but this still reminds me of the Tower Of Babel.

He'd get a bucket of water over his head if he played via my house at 9:00 am every morning 😂

 

King will wake every day to the strains of piper who enchanted his mother as he retains Pipe Major in tradition going back 180 years

It is a tradition that dates back to Queen Victoria, when she became entranced by the sound of the bagpipes on her first holiday to her beloved Scottish Highlands. Since 1843 there has been a piper to the ­Sovereign, and it is their role to play for 15 minutes outside the monarch's window at 9am each day, providing a rather unique wake-up call. And for the first time since His Majesty King Charles III acceded to the throne, Pipe Major Paul Burns, of the Royal Regiment of ­Scotland, was spotted playing for him at Windsor Castle this week.
