This double-thickness Piedfort Silver 50p was issued by the United Kingdom to mark the 100th Anniversary of the Representation of the People Act – the act that gave the right to vote to more people than any other reform act in British history and triggered 100 years of progress and change.
Piedforts were originally produced as gifts for Kings as demonstrations of craftsmanship. In 1982, The Royal Mint produced its very first Piedfort coins and has produced them in small numbers since then. 50p Piedforts are extremely rare.
This particular Piedfort is struck from 925/1000 Sterling Silver on superior double-thickness blanks then finished to the very highest flawless proof finish. Making this the ultimate in coin quality. There’s also a dramatically noticeable weight difference when you hold them too.
Designed by Stephen Taylor, the reverse of this striking coin shows a queue of a variety of British people lining up to cast their votes at the ballot box. Whilst the obverse features the Jody Clark portrait of Her Majesty the Queen.
Your coin will arrive in its own Official Royal Mint Presentation Case with Certificate of Authenticity, ready to display.
***Extremely Limited Edition***

Importantly, this has a strict single coin edition limit of just 1,918. That’s almost HALF the edition limit of the standard Silver Proof issue.
