JUST 8 REMAIN: Around the World in 80 Days Colour Brilliant Uncirculated Set


Five British Isles 50p coins have been released, issued to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Jules Verne’s epic adventure story; Around the World in 80 Days.

A global hit when first released in 1872, it has since been translated into hundreds of languages, adapted into numerous films and TV shows and even inspired multiple real-life imitations. However, this is first time the classic novel has been commemorated on a set of 50p coins.   

Extremely Limited Colour Specification 

Authorised for release by Guernsey Treasury and approved by Her Majesty the Queen, this 50p set has also been released in an extremely limited specification – Coloured Brilliant Uncirculated. Reserved for the most important releases, only very limited numbers are ever released. 

Designed by renowned artist Stephen Lee, the five coins depict Phileas Fogg's adventure across the world, from London to San Francisco and have then been brought to life with colour print. Plus, this special specification is EXCLUSIVE to Westminster Collection customers.

JUST 995 Available Worldwide

Given the rare specification, very few are being made available for collectors. In fact, just 995 will be released worldwide, and this will be the only way you can own all five coins in the exclusive colour Brilliant Uncirculated specification. Each set will come in a Presentation Box with a unique 'suitcase' decoration, along with the Certificate of Authenticity, confirming its strict edition limit.

The Silver Proof First Strike Set has already SOLD OUT, meaning it's just a matter of time before the rest of the specifications are gone too.
