A special coin's being unveiled in Liverpool later to mark the 50th anniversary of John Lennon's song "Give Peace a Chance".

It's been produced by the Royal Canadian Mint in honour of the singer.

Give Peace a Chance was Lennon's first non-Beatles single and was recorded on the penultimate day of his and Yoko Ono's second bed-in for peace - which took place in Montreal in 1969.
