NEW Silver Proof 50p celebrating Decimal Day

15th February 1971 was the day that British currency as we knew it changed forever.

As every serious coin collector knows, Decimal Day as it was dubbed was a huge turning point for UK coinage, as we waved goodbye to Pounds, Shillings and Pence.

Now, to mark the 50th anniversary of what was the biggest change to UK currency in over a thousand years, The Royal Mint has issued a BRAND NEW UK Silver 50p coin... 

50 years on – a nostalgic design

Expertly stuck from .925 silver to a proof finish, this coin features a bespoke and nostalgic design by Dominique Evans, which is inspired by the currency that was replaced in 1971, and perfectly conveys the transition from pre-decimal to decimal coins.

JUST 6,000 issued worldwide

Crucially, JUST 6,000 single coins have been authorised for release worldwide.

This is important because previous Silver 50ps, with the SAME edition limit – including the Sherlock Holmes Silver 50p – have sold out within hours of release.

In fact, Silver 50ps have become the collector’s favourite coin, with many selling out within hours of release. This makes it incredibly difficult for collectors looking to back-fill gaps in their collections, and inevitably many miss out. Make sure you’re not one of them.

Sell-out expected – secure yours for The Royal Mint issue price

A complete sell-out is expected. Especially when you consider the significance of Decimal Day. It’s sure to be a coin that every serious coin collector will want for their collection – after all, this anniversary is intrinsic to coin collecting!

We have a limited number available for Westminster Collection collectors, and if you’re quick you can secure yours today for The Royal Mint’s official issue priceONLY £57.50 (+p&p).

Remember, Decimal Day is sure to be huge collecting event this year, so make sure you secure your official UK Decimal Day Silver 50p while you have the chance – tomorrow could be too late.
