1951 coin suggestion

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for suggestions of a coin from 1951 that I can use in a small token of respect. 

My father in law has recently passed away and a few months ago he said he wanted to pay for us to have a new kitchen/diner in our house.

He was gutted he couldn't see the finished work and I would like to place a coin from his year of birth as a show of respect to him and his generosity, maybe in the tile work somewhere. 

I was thinking sovereign however I've quickly worked out they weren't produced for this year. I've seen a five shilling coin that is readily available but wanted to know if anyone had any other ideas? 

Thanks in advance.

A very popular coin for the year was the festival of Britain crown, nice to look at, very reasonably priced, and a lovely show of respect for your father in law. A lovely thought from you to remember someone so close

There are plenty around and below is a random example on eBay.

Well today was the funeral and I managed to find a suitable coin after the suggestions on here so thank you very much. 

Pictured is the coin we're going to place in our kitchen somewhere. Once again thank you for your advice, it really helped.
