160 years on from the birth of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, there are few literary legacies more celebrated than the creator of the most famous detective of all time, Sherlock Holmes. Now, for the first time ever, you can pay tribute to the most renowned creation in crime fiction with the brand-new UK Sherlock Holmes 50p

Official New UK 2019 50p Release

Commemorative 50p coins have taken off in recent years, with everything from significant historical anniversaries to the most beloved faces from modern popular culture all earning their place on UK coinage and being snapped up by collectors. It is unsurprising, therefore, that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s rich influence on fiction would be commemorated in this way.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle penned 60 stories dedicated to his beloved Sherlock Holmes, many of which have been adapted and translated onto the stage, the screen and countless other platforms, inspiring generations.

Official Royal Mint Presentation

Designed by Stephen Raw, the coin depicts the silhouette of the eponymous detective, framed by the titles of his most legendary adventures in minute font to encourage our ‘inner detective’ to make use of that essential tool, the magnifying glass. Struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, your Sherlock Holmes 50p is free from the blemishes and imperfections of circulating coins, giving it the supreme quality that collectors look for.

What’s more, your coin comes beautifully presented in its Official Royal Mint Presentation Pack filled with information about the coin and the legend it celebrates.

This is the very first time that Sherlock Holmes has appeared on UK coinage, making this one of the most sought-after coins of the year and if you want to secure one, you will need to act fast!

Add yours to your basked to avoid missing out.
