Since its inception 50 years ago, the 50p coin has changed the face of coin collecting! It has become the flagship of collectable UK currency commemorating everything from historical anniversaries to popular British themes!

Today, you have the chance to own a limited edition 50 years of the 50p Capsule Edition Set, featuring five new-issue UK 50p coins, issued by The Royal Mint to mark some of the most significant moments in Britain’s military history, as seen on the 50p over the last 50 years!

50p coins – more collectable than ever…

In one of the most internationally competitive collector fields, the 50p has homed some of the most collectable coin designs ever, including the 2012 Olympic Series, the rare Kew Gardens and the Beatrix Potter series. It’s safe to say, 50p’s are more collectable than ever – particularly during the 50th anniversary year!

The error coin which caused quite a stir…

The Royal Mint have chosen five retrospective reverse designs, from the last 50 years, to create a commemorative collection recalling epic battles and acts of bravery from British military history.

The set features two 50p coins commemorating the establishment of the Victoria Cross 150 years ago and its deserving recipients with two 50p coins featuring the most iconic battles at polar points of the last millennium; the Battle of Hastings and the Battle of Britain.

The 2015 Battle of Britain BU 50p was originally thought to be an error coin, with no mention of the denomination anywhere on the coin! Collectors were quick to snap these up as one of the most talked about coins of the decade!

Including the D-Day 50p re-issue in its 75th anniversary year!

The set also features the 1994 D-Day Landings 50p coin re-issued for the 75th Anniversary this year! The 1994 version came prior to the introduction of the new, smaller 50p coin in 1997, meaning it is no longer legal tender.

Each coin has been finished to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality, so it's free from the blemishes and imperfections of those in circulation. This is also the superior quality sought-after by collectors.

JUST 150 Exclusive Hand-signed Artist’s Presentations

Each coin has been mounted within exclusive original artwork by artist Nick Watton. What’s more, your set is one of the first 150 presentations within the 2,019 edition limit to be hand-signed by the artist himself!

The coins have been encapsulated in tamper-proof casing to preserve their pristine condition and they come presented in a display case with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity, confirming your capsule’s place within the strict edition limit.

Just 2,019 worldwide – 150 hand-signed!

There are JUST 150 hand-signed editions within a tiny edition limit of just 2,019 Capsule Edition Sets worldwide! Given the sell-out history of our previous Signed 50 years of the 50p Capsule Edition Set, these will be snapped up in no time. Plus, the Gold and Silver Proof versions of the set have now SOLD OUT at the Mint. 

Whether your collection is bursting with 50p’s or you’re looking to start a new collection, this is a must-have and the perfect way to mark the 50th birthday of an icon.
