2022 marks the 150th Anniversary of Jules Verne's epic adventure story, Around the World in 80 Days. A global hit when released, the book has since been translated into hundreds of languages, adapted into numerous films and TV shows and even inspired real-life imitations.
Well today, you can celebrate this milestone anniversary with five stunning Silver Proof coins.
Silver Proof 50p Coins
Each set features five coins, struck from .925 Sterling Silver to a high-quality Proof finish. Released by Guernsey Treasury and fully approved by her Majesty the Queen, each coin adorns an intricate design by artist Stephen Lee, which has been carefully coloured to bring the travels of Phileas Fogg to life – from London to San Francisco.
Only 500 Sets Worldwide
Given the popularity of Phileas Fogg's journey Around the World, the small edition limit of 500 is unlikely to satisfy demand. Especially as each set will arrive in a stylish Presentation Case alongside Certificate of Authenticity, confirming each sets place within the 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.
