The tradition of singing Christmas Carols during the festive period dates back to the 19th century. It is believed that the Christmas carol service was invented in Truro by Edward White Benson, who later became the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Now, to celebrate this Christmas season, FIVE coins have been authorised for release by Guernsey Treasury and fully approved by Her Majesty the Queen.
FIVE 50p Designs
Each coin features a specially commissioned design of some of the most renowned Christmas carols including; Away in a Manger, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, O Little Town of Bethlehem, While Shepherds watched their flocks, and We Three Kings.
The coins have been struck from .925 Solid Silver to a pristine Proof finish – the best possible finish available on a coin.
Importantly, this set is one of the only ways you can own all five of these coins. None of the designs will be available to purchase individually.
Just 2,020 Available – Sell Out Expected
An extremely limited worldwide mintage of JUST 2,020 has been set for this incredible set.
The Silver 50p has firmly established itself as the collector’s favourite, spurred on by the success of similar recent releases, with sell-outs almost guaranteed. Demand for this brand new Christmas Carol Silver Proof 50p Set is expected to be just as high.
The coins will arrive ready to display in a deluxe presentation case with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
