2022 Harry Potter Hogwarts Express Fifty Pence Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder

UK22HEBU 2022 Harry Potter Hogwarts Express Fifty Pence Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder
from
£15.00
Highly-collectible brilliant uncirculated (BU) coin from The Royal Mint featuring The Hogwarts Express: the second release in the new Harry Potter 25 Years Of Magic collection. Step on to Platform 9 and 3/4s at London’s Kings Cross Station to catch this magical steam train, on its way to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The iconic locomotive that carried Harry and his pals to school every term in the best-selling books by J K Rowling is shown here waiting for students to embark. The design is the work of Jim Kay, the artist behind the new illustrated editions of the Harry Potter series, adapted for coinage by The Royal Mint’s Ffion Gwillim. These licensed collectors pieces, created in partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing, The Blair Partnership and Warner Bros, Entertainment, represent the first time that the Hogwarts Express has featured on official UK currency. The coins in this eagerly-anticipated range are some of the last to feature Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Subsequent releases will use Martin Jennings new definitive effigy of King Charles III. This 50 Pence coin is struck in 8.00 grams of cupronickel alloy, like the circulating coins you’ll find in your change. It’s distinguished by the attractive brilliant uncirculated finish and the pleasing card display folder containing additional illustrations by Jim Kay.

Harry Potter: 25 Years Of Magic Series

Harry Potter And The Philosophers Stone, the first book in J K Rowling's best-selling children's fantasy series, was published in June 1997. 25 years on, the novels have been translated into 73 languages and adapted into a series of blockbuster films, continuing to capture the hearts of new fans, eager to explore Harry's magical world.

The Royal Mint is celebrating the world of the boy wizard with a range of licensed coins, created in partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing, The Blair Partnership and Warner Bros, Entertainment. The pieces in this extensive collection are the first official UK coins to feature characters from Harry Potter and represent a unique collecting opportunity.

25 Years of Magic will feature four designs, available in BUnc, silver and gold proof:

  • 2022 Harry Potter
  • 2022 Hogwarts Express
  • 2023 Dumbledore
  • 2023 Hogwarts School

Hogwarts Express Design By Jim Kay

The second release in the Harry Potter series features the Hogwarts Express, waiting at Platform 9 and 3/4s. The famous steam train transports Harry and his friends from London King's Cross to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, located in the highlands of Scotland.

The artist behind this design is Jim Kay who has created a range of fully-illustrated Harry Potter books for Bloomsbury. His whimsical work is inspired by extensive research and a close reading of the original stories. To perfect the appearance of the Hogwarts Express, Kay created a model then used DIY tester pots to create the finished painting. The design was adapted for coinage by Ffion Gwillim, a product designer at The Royal Mint.

The words 'HOGWARTS EXPRESS' feature at the top of the coin with '25 YEARS OF MAGIC' below.

Fifth And Final Portrait Of Elizabeth II

The first two coins in the 25 Years of Magic collection feature Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, despite being issued after her passing in September 2022. Introduced in 2015, Clark's profile shows Her Majesty wearing the Diamond Diadem, surrounded by a legend that reads 'ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D' followed by the denomination and the year (2022).

The Royal Mint will not cease striking Queen Elizabeth's portrait until January 2023, after which all new currency - including circulating and commemorative coins - will be issued with Martin Jenning's new effigy of King Charles III. This definitive royal portrait was unveiled in late 2022 and shows His Majesty facing left, the opposite direction to his mother.

Subsequent coins in the Harry Potter series will feature Jennings' portrait, meaning that the collection will straddle this fascinating period of coinage transition.

Limited Edition Official Harry Potter Coins

You can identify genuine Royal Mint Harry Potter coins via the special latent image, included on the reverse of each design. Depending on how you tilt the coin you'll either be able to see a lightning bolt (like Harry's scar) or a '25', denoting the anniversary of these immensely popular books.

We've found that coins inspired by great British children's books are among the most popular releases from The UK's national mint. Winnie the Pooh coins and Beatrix Potter 50ps remain favourites, attracting new audiences to the world of coin collecting. 

All the coins in the range are being offered in limited numbers (just 100 for the sparkling 2oz gold pieces). As the gold and large silver Harry Potter coins have now sold out on The Royal Mint's website, we anticipate that buyers will soon snap up their remaining stock of Hogwarts Express pieces. We've still got some left but the opportunity to get hold of these coins is dwindling.
