50 Years of the 50p Military Capsule Edition Set
Own the NEW UK 50 Years of the 50p Coins presented in a limited edition set.
Today, you have the chance to own a limited edition 50 years of the 50p Capsule Edition Set, featuring five new-issue commemorative 50p coins, carefully curated by The Royal Mint to celebrate some of the most significant moments in Britain’s military history, as seen on the reverse of 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 of all time, including the 2012 Olympic Series, the famously rare Kew Gardens and of course the incredible 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 across the last 50 years, recalling epic battles and acts of bravery etched into British military history.
The set features two 50p coins paying homage to the establishment of the Victoria Cross 150 years ago and its deserving recipients, accompanied by 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 Brilliant Uncirculated release 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, meaning it will not have the blemishes and imperfections of those in circulation. This is also the superior quality sought-after by collectors.
Exclusive Limited Edition Presentation
Each coin has been interpreted by artist Nick Watton who has designed the stunning original artwork that each coin is mounted within.
The coins have been encapsulated in tamper-proof casing to preserve their pristine condition for years to come. The capsules come presented in a deluxe presentation case with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity, confirming your capsule’s place within the strict edition limit.
Both the Gold and Silver versions of this set completely SOLD OUT almost immediately and our own signed capsule edition set SOLD OUT in just a few hours! Don't miss out on your chance to own these coins!
Just 2,019 worldwide
There are just 2,019 of these exclusive presentations worldwide and given the sell-out history of our previous commemorative 50p Capsule Editions, we are sure these will be snapped up in no time.
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.
