The UK 1969 Britannia Circulation 50p

Secure a 1969 UK Britannia 50p

In October 1969, the 50p was issued into circulation for the very first time.

This was the first heptagonal-shaped coin to be issued and was the only such coin in circulation in the world, making it a numismatic first.

The 1969 50p Britannia Definitive features Christopher Ironside’s iconic design of Britannia, seated beside a lion, with a trident in her right hand and olive branch in her left.

Your coin is an original 1969 50p (over 50 years old!) in the larger 50p specifications that cannot be found in your change nowadays, and features the inscription ‘New Pence’.

What’s more, your coin will come protectively encapsulated in official Change Checker packaging ready to slot into the display pages of your Change Checker Album!

Be sure you don’t miss your opportunity to add this piece of British Numismatic history to your collection and secure your original 1969 Britannia 50p for JUST £8.99 (+p&p) right now >>
