Just 3,500 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! Today, you have the chance to own this unusual coin in stunning Silver, struck to a flawless Proof finish! But you'll need to hurry as we currently only have 7 remaining for collectors... 

 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 Marks

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! 

A flawless strike – exceptionally rare!

The coin has been struck to an immaculate Proof finish, the highest standard of coin struck, with no equal in sharpness or detail. This flawless strike brings every detail to life with crisp precision and is even more impressive when you consider that it has been struck from fine Silver!

Due to the difficulty in striking this coin, JUST 3,500 of these have been minted worldwide! This is incredibly rare in terms of Official UK 50p issues and is bound to be snapped up in no time - especially when you consider that the full 3,500 edition limit of the 50th Anniversary Silver Proof 50p Culture Sets issued earlier this year completely SOLD OUT in hours of release. 

Official Royal Mint Presentation

The coin comes protectively encapsulated in The Royal Mint’s official Perspex presentation block. This striking presentation will keep your Proof coin in pristine condition for years to come and will make the perfect keepsake for future generations.

Plus, your coin comes complete with a numbered certificate of authenticity!

For any 50p collection, large or small, this brand-new release is a must-have to celebrate the 50th birthday of an icon.

Add yours to your basket fo The Royal Mint issue price of just £55 (+p&p) to avoid missing out.
