On 4th November the iconic stop-motion duo Wallace and Gromit will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of their silver screen debut in A Grand Day Out. And to mark the occasion a BRAND NEW UK 50p coin has been authorised for release.
This new 50p coin has been struck by The Royal Mint to a pristine Brilliant Uncirculated finish. On the reverse you’ll find Wallace and Gromit smiling from the window of the rocket they use in A Grand Day Out to fly to the moon in search of cheese. Their love of cheese is even captured in Latin above the window: “CASEUS PRAESTANS”, meaning “cracking cheese”.
JUST 500 available worldwide – sell-out likely
This is the first time the pair have appeared on a UK coin. First editions such as this are always incredibly popular with collectors and fans alike, with many looking for the most limited way to secure the coin.
Thousands of the new Brilliant Uncirculated Wallace and Gromit 50p Coin will be struck, however only 500 will be available in this exclusive DateStamp™ Issue - an extremely limited way to own this new 50p coin.
DateStamp issues are always extremely popular with collectors, and have a strong sell-out history. In fact, when The Gruffalo 50p DateStamp™ was issued earlier this year – with the SAME edition limit, and also featuring a first edition coin – it sold out in a matter of hours.
All signs suggest this issue is likely to sell-out just as quickly.
Postmarked with the anniversary date – 4th November 2019
Your coin will be officially postmarked by Royal Mail with the exact anniversary of A Grand Day Out – 4th November 2019. What’s more, each coin comes protectively sealed in a tamper-proof numismatic capsule with its own unique serial number so you can even register it online to receive your official DateStamp™ registration certificate.
Remember, because of the special one-day-only postmark, just 500 of these issues will ever be made available. A sell-out is expected, so act now to ensure you add this issue to your collection.
Don’t miss out, pre-order yours today.
