The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe Silver 50p

UK 2023 The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe Silver Proof 50p

A new UK 50p coin has just been issued, celebrating the adventures of Lucy and her siblings in the magical realm of Narnia. As one of C.S. Lewis’ most iconic novels, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the latest piece of children's literature to make its way onto a UK 50p coin.

Over the years, popularity of coins like Winnie the Pooh, The Snowman and The Gruffalo have caused instant sell-outs of Silver Proof 50ps with edition limits up to 25,000.

However, this Narnia Silver Proof coin is extremely limited to only 5,000 worldwide, making it the ideal way to honour this famous tale…

  • Struck from Sterling Silver to a stunning Proof finish. This means it has been struck multiple times to create a perfect mirrored finish.
  • Finished with the addition of selective colour printing, bringing to life the original illustration of Mr Tumnus and Lucy entering Narnia…
  • Features King Charles III on the obverse, with his portrait by Martin Jennings.
  • Limited to just 5,000 worldwide - an extremely small number given the vast appeal of The Chronicles of Narnia novels.
