Order the UK Plesiosaurus Silver Proof 50p now

Fossil hunter Mary Anning is responsible for some of the most significant Early Jurassic discoveries. An unsung hero at the time, The Royal Mint has confirmed a BRAND NEW UK 3-Coin 50p series to celebrate her legacy and discoveries.

The SECOND reptile to feature in The Mary Anning Collection is the Plesiosaurus – a marine reptile as large as 4.5 metres with fins that it used to swim through the water.

Expertly struck from .925 silver to a flawless proof finish, the creature on this 50p has been designed by renowned British palaeo-artist Robert Nicholls.

SELL-OUT on the cards – 3,000 available worldwide

Importantly, JUST 3,000 single coins have been authorised for release worldwide.

This is surely not enough to meet demand. You see, the Megalosaurus Silver Proof 50p was also issued with the SAME 3,000 edition limit and it completely SOLD OUT at the Mint within days.

All signs suggest we will see another sell-out here.

Order yours for The Royal Mint’s official issue price

If you’re quick, you can secure one for your collection for The Royal Mint’s official issue price of JUST £62.50 (+p&p).

But considering the rapid sell-out history of previous silver proof 50ps you’ll have to take urgent action to avoid disappointment. Tomorrow could be too late. 

Plus, you can order the next TWO coins in the collection below…
