Decimalisation Day Bundle
Own the UK Decimalisation Day 50p and Decimalisation Newspaper book
On 15 February 1971, the United Kingdom made a monumental change to its currency, switching from the ancient system of pounds, shillings and pence to a new, decimal system. The day itself became known as Decimal Day and was a landmark moment for Britain and The Royal Mint, who struck billions of new coins for the changeover. From this day onwards, the pound was divided into 100 new pence.
For this reason, Decimalisation Day is remembered as a highly pivotal event in Great British history…
And you have the opportunity to own the Decimalisation Day 50p in a tamper-proof capsule edition along with the Decimalisation newspaper book.
Official UK 2021 50p Release
What better way to celebrate this day than with the nation’s favourite coin of the decimalised era – the 50p! Coins from The Royal Mint often record the most important moments but sometimes they make history themselves.
Designed by Dominique Evans, the design conveys the transition from pre-decimal to decimal coins.
Struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, your Decimalisation Day 50p is free from the blemishes and imperfections of circulating coins and your capsule will come presented within a classic presentation case, accompanied by its individually numbered certificate of authenticity.
