EXTREMELY RARE: Silver Piedfort 50p to mark 50 years of the 50p


EXTREMELY RARE: Silver Piedfort 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.

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

The new coin features Christopher Ironside’s classic New Pence Britannia design.

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.

EXTREMELY RARE PIEDFORT 50p – just 1,969 worldwide

But, demand is sure to be high for this issue. Especially since just 1,969 single coins have been released worldwide.

Piedforts are the pinnacle of Royal Mint craftsmanship. They’re struck on superior double-thickness .925 Sterling Silver blanks and finished to the very highest proof qualityDouble the thickness means they are double the weight of the Silver Proof issue and contain double the amount of Silver.

What’s more, 50p Piedforts are extremely rare. That's because they are struck with incredibly low edition limits, and as such are always highly sought-after.

In fact, they are so in demand that the 2019 UK Stephen Hawking 50p Silver Proof Piedfort, with a higher edition limit of 2,500, COMPLETELY SOLD OUT at The Royal Mint.
