SOLD OUT at the Mint: Sherlock Holmes™ Silver Proof 50p


SOLD OUT at the Mint: Sherlock Holmes™ Silver Proof 50p

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle revolutionised the crime genre with the creation of his iconic detective, Sherlock Holmes™. The ‘consulting detective’ and his unique way of discovering thieves and murderers became an instant favourite with Victorian readers, and remains so to this day.

And in celebration of the 160th Anniversary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s birth, a United Kingdom Silver Proof 50p featuring the legendary Sherlock Holmes has been released.

SOLD OUT at The Royal Mint

Significantly, the Sherlock Holmes™ Silver Proof 50p has a single coin edition limit of just 6,000, and has COMPLETELY SOLD OUT at The Royal Mint, within 24 hours of release. This makes it one of the fastest selling 50ps around.

The Silver Proof 50p has fast become the must-have coin for collectors, and now has a rapid sell-out history, making them some of the most sought-after issues.

Struck impeccably from .925 Sterling Silver to a beautiful proof finish, the design of the coin by Stephen Raw encourages collectors to do some sleuthing of their own. Using a magnifying glass – like an intrepid detective – you can discover 16 titles in the Sherlock Holmes™ canon engraved around the profile of the famous detective.
