SOLD OUT at The Mint: Silver Proof 50p to mark 50 years of the 50p


SOLD OUT at The Mint: Silver Proof 50p to mark 50 years of the 50p

Since its release in 1969, the 50p has become one of the world’s most collected coins. And this year the demand for 50ps has been higher than ever before, as we celebrate the 7-sided coin’s 50th anniversary.

To mark the occasion, a brand new UK Silver Proof 50p has been authorised for release, and it’s seen an unprecedented response from collectors. In fact, it’s COMPLETELY SOLD OUT. And it’s no wonder, because its design features a minting first… 

Special never-before-seen privy mark and a minting first

The new coin features Christopher Ironside’s classic New Pence Britannia design. What’s more, it’s struck from .925 Sterling Silver to a perfect proof finish.  

But what truly sets this issue apart and makes it highly collectable is the inclusion of THREE special features:

1. Exclusive never-before-seen privy mark, designed especially for the occasion. A Spirograph-type design drawn from an extension of lines forming the 50p shape creates this unique privy mark.

2. Innovative marks around the reverse rim of the coin. The letters A to G are inscribed on each point and are joined by arced crossing lines – this is a minting first on a 50p coin.

3. The denomination in 'NEW PENCE' – not seen since 1981. 

These three features alone make this commemorative this year’s must have 50p release, and increase its collectability.


As you know, Silver Proof 50ps have become the collectors' favourite, and consistently sell-out.

And this coin is no exception.

Demand for this new coin has been exceptionally high, and the full edition limit of 3,500 has completely sold out at the Royal Mint, within just a handful of days.
