Just 1,495 worldwide - over 70% SOLD

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 official UK Sherlock Holmes™ 50p presented in an Exclusive Capsule Edition…

Official 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.

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 premium quality that collectors look for.

Exclusive Capsule Edition Presentation

Your Official UK Sherlock Holmes™ 50p sits within original, full-colour illustrative artwork by Diane Fawcett, encapsulated in a tamper-proof capsule to preserve the pristine condition of both the Sherlock Holmes™ 50p and its exclusive artwork for years to come.

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

Limited Edition - Over 70% SOLD

This Sherlock 50p has proven to be one of the most collected coins of the decade and with only 1,495 of these exclusive Capsule Edition presentations issued worldwide, this is an incredibly rare way to own it!

This is the very first time that Sherlock Holmes has appeared on UK coinage and a release that no collector or Sherlock fan can afford to miss!

Add yours to your basked to avoid missing out.
