JUST 500 special Decimal Day DateStamp™ Issues available

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, fifty years on, it seems only right that the biggest change to UK currency in over a thousand years should be commemorated on BRAND NEW UK 50p coin…

JUST 500 available worldwide – sell-out likely

The bespoke, nostalgic reverse design by Dominique Evans is inspired by the currency that was replaced in 1971, and perfectly conveys the transition from pre-decimal to decimal coins.

Thousands of the new Brilliant Uncirculated Decimal Day 50p Coins will be struck, however only 500 will be available in this exclusive DateStamp™ Issue – an extremely limited way to own this new 50p coin.

DateStamp issues are always incredibly popular with collectors and have a strong sell-out history. In fact, previous 50p DateStamp issues have sold out within a matter of hours, including the Stephen Hawking and Rosalind Franklin issues. All signs suggest this issue is likely to sell-out just as quickly.

Postmarked with the 50th anniversary date – 15th February 2021

Your coin will be officially postmarked by Royal Mail with the exact anniversary of Decimal Day – 15th February 2021. What’s more, each coin comes protectively sealed in a tamper-proof numismatic capsule with its own unique serial number so you can even register it online to receive your official DateStamp™ registration certificate.

Remember, because of the special one-day-only postmark, just 500 of these issues will ever be made available. A sell-out is expected, so act now to ensure you add this issue to your collection.

Don’t miss out, pre-order yours today.
