WORLD FIRST: Around the World in 80 Days Brilliant Uncirculated 50p Set

Five British Isles 50p coins have been released, issued to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Jules Verne’s epic adventure story; Around the World in 80 Days.

A global hit when first released in 1872, it has since been translated into hundreds of languages, adapted into numerous films and TV shows and even inspired multiple real-life imitations. However, this is FIRST TIME the classic novel has been commemorated on a set of 50p coins.   

FIVE 50p Coins Approved By Her Majesty the Queen

This stunning set – authorised for release by Guernsey Treasury and officially approved by Her Majesty the Queen – features FIVE coins each struck to superior Brilliant Uncirculated Quality.

Designed by renowned artist Stephen Lee, each 50p depicts a key destination that Phileas Fogg and his French Valet Passepartout visited in the book, so they could travel around the world in just 80 days; London, San Francisco, Singapore, Yokohama and Allahabad.

Only Way You Can Own All Five Coins

Importantly, this set is one of the only ways you can own all five 50p coins in Brilliant Uncirculated quality. They will arrive housed in bespoke packaging ensuring their Brilliant Uncirculated finish is protected for years to come.

The Silver Proof First Strike Set has already SOLD OUT, meaning it's just a matter of time before the rest of the specifications are gone too.
