2022 Harry Potter 25 Years Of Magic Fifty Pence Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder

UK22HPBU 2022 Harry Potter 25 Years Of Magic 50p Brilliant Uncirculated Packaging
from
£11.00
Brilliant uncirculated Harry Potter 50 Pence in original packaging from The Royal Mint. 2022 marks twenty-five years since the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (also known as the Sorcerer's Stone in the United States). The first book in J K Rowling's seven-part fantasy series was published in June 1997, inviting readers - young and old - to enter the magical world of Hogwarts. The story follows the school career of Harry Potter who discovers he’s a wizard on his eleventh birthday. Together with his friends Ron and Hermione, Harry spends much of his teenage years working to thwart Voldemort, the dark wizard who killed his parents. Translated into 73 languages, Harry Potter is the best-selling book series in history and spawned a slew of blockbuster movie adaptions. Collectors can enjoy a whole range of official and unofficial merch but there's never been an official UK coin featuring The Boy Who Lived: until now. This 50p is from the first release in The Royal Mint’s 25 Years of Magic collection and features a portrait of the boy wizard by Ffion Gwillim, paired with Jody Clark’s fifth and final coin portrait of the late Queen Elizabeth II. This coin is made from the same metal as a standard, circulating Fifty Pence but features a fine BUnc finish, allowing you to appreciate the detail of both designs. Available now with free UK shipping.

The Royal Mint's 25 Years Of Magic Collection

2022 marks twenty-five years since the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone: the first book in J K Rowling's seven-part fantasy series was published in June 1997.

The Harry Potter books are the best-selling series in history. They've been translated into 73 languages and adapted into a series of blockbuster films. Collectors can enjoy a whole range of official and unofficial merch but there's never been an official UK coin featuring The Boy Who Lived: until now.

To celebrate 25 Years of Magic, The Royal Mint is offering an extensive collection of commemorative coinage, inspired by the world of Harry Potter. It seems that there will be four designs in this collection, the first starring Harry himself with subsequent releases featuring the Hogwarts Express, Headmaster Albus Dumbledore, and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. 

Read more on about the series on our blog: Accio Numismatica! Royal Mint to Conjure Up Harry Potter Coins.

Design By Jim Kay And Ffion Gwillim

The magical designs that appear on The Royal Mint's 25 Years Of Magic coins are based on the work of illustrator Jim Kay. He's the artist behind fully illustrated editions of the Harry Potter books, released by Bloomsbury. 

Kay's designs have been adapted for coinage by Ffion Gwillim, a product designer at The Royal Mint. Her work for the Harry Potter coins shows the boy wizard looking over his shoulder, surrounded by sparking stars.

Special latent feature: 2022 Harry Potter coins feature a lenticular security image which alternately shows a lightning bolt or the number '25' when the coin is moved.

It's the coins with colour-printed detail that best capture the charm of Jim Kay's designs: you can see this feature on the silver proof 50ps which comes in a special acrylic display case.

Final Portrait Of Queen Elizabeth II

The first Harry Potter coins were released just weeks after the passing of Her Majesty the Queen. Elizabeth II was succeeded by her son, King Charles III, on 8 September 2022.

The Royal Mint has announced that the first two collections in the 25 Years Of Magic series will feature Jody Clark's portrait of the late Queen: the fifth and final definitive portrait to be used on her coinage.

The following two releases will feature the new portrait of King Charles to the obverse. This effigy is the work of British sculptor Martin Jennings and shows the King facing left, the opposite direction to Elizabeth II. 25 Years Of Magic coins will be among the first UK commemorative coins to show Jennings' bust.

Are Royal Mint Harry Potter Coins Collectible?

Previous Royal Mint coins based on beloved children's books have proved incredibly popular. The ongoing Beatrix Potter series appeals both to coin collectors and those with nostalgic memories of her Little Tales. We anticipate that the 25 Years of Magic collection will be a favourite with those who've grown up with J K Rowling's stories.

Adding to the collectibility of these forthcoming Royal Mint coins is the fact that there are four different designs to collect. Each is available in a range of metals and finishes meaning that there's something in this collection for every budget.

Several of the 25 Years Of Magic series are available in highly limited numbers. Among the rarest coins in the collection is the 22-carat gold Harry Potter 50p with only 300 issued. The silver proof - also limited edition - are all sold out on The Royal Mint website but we've still got a small number of the .925 sterling silver 50ps, 1oz and 2oz coins in stock.
