Just 500 worldwide!

1969 brought the world’s first seven-sided coin in the form of the UK 50 pence piece. Since then, it has become the flagship of collectable UK currency and the collector’s favourite!

To mark the 50th Anniversary of the 50p this year, The Royal Mint have re-issued the original 1969 50p design featuring a special one-time-only anniversary privy marka minting first! And you can own it today in an exclusive hand-signed capsule edition presentation limited to JUST 500…

The Shape of a Revolution!

This special anniversary coin celebrates the science that brought us this innovative coin! The reverse design features Christopher Ironside’s iconic Britannia design, inscribed with NEW PENCE just like the original 1969 release.

A Minting First – Official Privy Mark

What really sets this issue apart is the addition of not one, but TWO special privy marks:

1) In a minting first, the outer rim features the letters A to G at each point, joined by arced crossing lines plus

2) Exclusive never-seen-before privy mark - a special Spirograph-type mark drawn from an extension of the lines forming the 50p shape! This rare privy mark references the pioneering science behind the 50p and makes it highly collectable in its own right! 

Limited Edition Presentation – JUST 500 Hand-Signed - Now SOLD OUT

The coin has been struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, meaning it will not have the blemishes and imperfections of those in circulation. This is also the superior quality sought-after by collectors.

The classic Britannia design has been exclusively interpreted by artist Diane Fawcett to create the stunning original artwork framing the coin itself. What’s more, just 500 of these exclusive presentations (the first 500 of the edition limit of 4,995) have been hand-signed by Diane herself making this one of the rarest ways to own the new coin! What's more, over 80% have now SOLD! 

Plus, the coin and artwork have been encapsulated in tamper-proof casing to preserve its pristine condition for years to come.  The capsule comes housed in a premium presentation case with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity, confirming your capsule’s place within the strict edition limit.

For any 50p collection, large or small, this brand-new release is a must-have and this limited presentation is the perfect way to mark the 50th birthday of an icon!
