50 years of the 50p – own the limited edition 50th Anniversary Pair

In 1969 The Royal Mint introduced one of the most innovative designs in British numismatic history – the 50p coin.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the release of this extremely popular coin, today you have the chance to own a limited edition 50th Anniversary Pair containing the original first year of issue 50p from 1969 alongside the brand new 2019 definitive 50p.

The UK’s most popular coin

Since its release 50 years ago, the 50p coin has since become one of the most sought after of all the UK’s circulating coins, attracting huge collector interest and becoming one of the of the most competitive areas of collecting internationally.

The 50p as a denomination has produced some of the UK’s most collectable coins – such as the 2012 Olympic Series, the famous Kew Gardens and of course the incredible Beatrix Potter series. 

Original first year of issue 50p

Your original 1969 50p features the iconic Christopher Ironside Britannia design that featured on the coin for an incredible 39 years and comes protectively encapsulated in a tamperproof capsule.

Your original 1969 50p will come presented alongside the brand new 2019 Definitive 50p struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish in a presentation case along with a certificate of authenticity.

However, only a limited number of coins will be paired in this way, and considering the huge popularity of 50p coins amongst collectors and the general public demand is likely to be massive.
