The UK Decimal Day Silver 50p Coin Cover – limited to 495 worldwide

15th February 1971 was the day that British currency as we knew it changed forever.

As every serious coin collector knows, Decimal Day was a huge turning point for UK coinage and postage, as we waved goodbye to Pounds, Shillings and Pence.

And, to mark the significant 50th anniversary of Decimal Day, a special UK Silver 50p Coin Cover was released…  

Official UK Silver Proof 50p Coin and Stamp Selection

The Silver Decimal Day Coin Cover carries Royal Mail’s 1st Class Definitive decimal stamp alongside a lilac Wilding pre-decimal stamp. This exclusive pairing perfectly captures the change that Decimalisation brought to the UK.

These stamps are presented alongside the UK 2021 Decimal Day Silver Proof 50p. This coin has been expertly struck by The Royal Mint to a flawless proof finish – the most sought-after coin finish amongst serious collectors.

JUST 495 Available Worldwide

The Decimal Day Silver Proof 50p coin has a mintage of 6,710, but ONLY 495 were kept aside for this special coin cover. This is one of the most limited ways to own this important Silver 50p.

What's more, the cover has been officially postmarked by Royal Mail, with a bespoke cancellation confirming the exact date of the 50th anniversary of Decimal Day – 15th February 2021.

This one-day-only postmark, and the fact that each cover is individually numbered, further confirms the strict 495 worldwide edition limit, and means no more can ever be produced.
