Own the UK Decimalisation Day 50p in an exclusive capsule edition

A Pivotal Event in Great British History

On 15 February 1971, the United Kingdom made a monumental change to its currency, switching from the ancient system of pounds, shillings and pence to a new, decimal system. The day itself became known as Decimal Day and was a landmark moment for Britain and The Royal Mint, who struck billions of new coins for the changeover. From this day onwards, the pound was divided into 100 new pence. 

For this reason, Decimalisation Day is remembered as a highly pivotal event in Great British history…

And now for the first time ever, you can commemorate this with the Decimalisation Day 50p, presented in an exclusive Capsule Edition.

Official UK 2021 50p Release

What better way to celebrate this day than with the nation’s favourite coin of the decimalised era – the 50p! Coins from The Royal Mint often record the most important moments but sometimes they make history themselves.

Designed by Dominique Evans, the design conveys the transition from pre-decimal to decimal coins.

Struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, your Decimalisation Day 50p is free from the blemishes and imperfections of circulating coins.

Limited Edition Presentation – Only 1971 Worldwide!

Your Official UK Decimalisation Day 50p has been hand-mounted into an exclusive collector card and encapsulated within a tamper-proof capsule to preserve the pristine condition of this important 50p.

Your capsule will come presented within a classic presentation case, accompanied by its individually numbered certificate of authenticity.

But with JUST 1971 of these 50ps issued worldwide, we only currently have 150 of these original capsule editions in stock for Collectology collectors. With the soaring popularity of UK 50p issues and the significance of this particular British currency milestone, we’re expecting a fast sell-out.
