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 presented in an Exclusive Capsule Edition…

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.

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.

Exclusive hand-signed artwork – JUST 250

Your Official UK Sherlock Holmes 50p comes framed within original, full-colour illustrative artwork by Diane Fawcett and is one of JUST 250 of the 1,495 edition limit which have been hand-signed by the artist herself. The collectability of signed artwork is constantly growing and considering the sell-out history of our signed editions these will be snapped up by collectors in no time! Now SOLD OUT!

Limited Edition Presentation

The brand-new Official UK Sherlock Holmes 50p is a truly unique release from The Royal Mint and collectors have been eager to secure one since the 2019 commemorative coins were announced at the start of the year. What’s more, with only 1,495 of these exclusive Capsule Edition presentations issued worldwide, and only 250 of those to be signed, this is an incredibly rare way to own it!

Your coin and autographed artwork come encapsulated within a tough, tamper-proof capsule to preserve their pristine condition for generations to come.

Your capsule will come presented within a deluxe presentation case, accompanied by its individually numbered certificate of authenticity to complete the stunning presentation, ready to display with pride.

If you would like the chance to own a limited edition capsule presentation, you will need to be quick. 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!

Add yours to your basked to avoid missing out.
