BRAND NEW: Silver Proof 50p to mark 50 years of the 50p

Since its release in 1969, the 50p has become one of the world’s most collected coins. And this year the demand for 50ps has been higher than ever before, as we celebrate the 7-sided coin’s 50th anniversary.

To mark the occasion, a brand new UK 50p has been authorised for release which is sure to see an overwhelming response from collectors. That’s because its design features a minting first

Special never-before-seen privy mark and a minting first

The new coin features Christopher Ironside’s classic New Pence Britannia design. What’s more, it’s struck from .925 Sterling Silver to a perfect proof finish.  

But what truly sets this issue apart and makes it highly collectable is the inclusion of THREE special features:

1. Exclusive never-before-seen privy mark, designed especially for the occasion. A Spirograph-type design drawn from an extension of lines forming the 50p shape creates this unique privy mark.

2. Innovative marks around the reverse rim of the coin. The letters A to G are inscribed on each point and are joined by arced crossing lines – this is a minting first on a 50p coin.

3. The denomination in 'NEW PENCE' – not seen since 1981. 

These three features alone make this commemorative this year’s must have 50p release.

Demand guaranteed to be high – JUST 3,500 worldwide

But, demand is sure to be high for this issue. Especially since just 3,500 single coins have been released worldwide. And as you know, Silver Proof 50ps have become the collectors' favourite, and consistently sell-out.

Remember, the full 3,500 edition limit of The Royal Mint's 50th Anniversary Silver Proof 50p Culture Sets issued earlier this year COMPLETELY SOLD OUT.

That’s the same edition limit as this coin. So there’s no doubt that this new issue is going to be highly sought-after – particularly as its collectability is only increased by the THREE special features.
