Celebrate 50 years of the 50p with the Official UK Anniversary 50p

Exclusive Edition - Just 4,995 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 in 2019, The Royal Mint have re-issued the original 1969 50p design featuring a special one-time-only anniversary privy marka minting first! And you can own it today in an exclusive capsule edition presentation, but you must hurry - the Silver Proof version of the 50p and our signed capsule edition featuring the coin have both completely SOLD OUT... 

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 Mark

In a minting first, the outer rim features the letters A to G at each point, joined by arced crossing lines and 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 design and is highly sought-after by collectors!

Exclusive Limited Edition Presentation

The coin has been struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, meaning it will not have the blemishes and imperfections of those in circulation. This is also the superior quality sought-after by collectors.

The classic Britannia design has been exclusively interpreted by artist Diane Fawcett to create the stunning original artwork framing the coin itself.

Plus, the coin and artwork have been encapsulated in tamper-proof casing to preserve its pristine condition for years to come.  The capsule comes housed in a premium presentation case with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity, confirming your capsule’s place within the strict edition limit.

Just 4,995 worldwide - SELL-OUT history

There are JUST 4,995 of these exclusive presentations worldwide and given the sell-out history of our previous commemorative 50p Capsule Editions and the significance of this particular release for 50p collectors, we are sure these will be snapped up in no time.

In fact, the Silver Proof version of this 50p has completely SOLD OUT at the Mint and our Signed Capsule Edition featuring this coin has also completely SOLD OUT. 

For any 50p collection, large or small, this important release is a must-have and this limited presentation is the perfect way to mark the 50th birthday of an icon.
