The Alan Turing 50p Coin Cover

Don’t miss out on your chance of honouring mathematician, philosopher and scientist, Alan Turing, with this stunning new coin cover. It might just be the most limited presentation of the new UK 50p you’ll find…

UK 2022 Alan Turing Brilliant Uncirculated 50p

The cover itself includes the new UK 50p coin in Brilliant Uncirculated Quality, which features three code breaking elements – can you see them?

Code 1. GEARS.GRIN.THAN – every 3-square-meter of the world has been given a unique combination of three words. Go to ‘whatthreewords’ to find the location where Turing studied… 

Code 2. ‘ONLY A FORETASTE OF WHAT IS TO COME’ – Turing’s quote in The Times, June 1949.

Code 3. Matt Dent and Christian Davies – the coin designers' initials.

Postmarked by Royal Mail

Each cover has been carefully paired with a Royal Mail 1st Class Stamp alongside a commemorative label. These have then been specially postmarked on the 4th September 2022, marking the date Turing entered Bletchley Park.

Just 495 available

Strictly limited to only 495 worldwide, this is easily one of the most limited ways to own the 50p coin.

Plus, due to the one-day-only postmark, no more can ever be made – meaning you truly have secured yourself a unique moment captured in time.
