Premium, 22-carat gold proof British Culture Fifty Pence set from a limited edition presentation of just 75! The first 50ps were introduced in 1969, just before Decimal Day when the UK switched to decimal currency. Initially, these seven-sided coins bore the figure of Britannia - the female personification of Britain - on their reverse. The work of Christopher Ironside, the design connected the new denomination to historic UK coinage and was used for decades, including after the 50p was reissued in 1997. Over the years, a wide range of commemorative designs have also featured on these coins and some of the most famous have been reproduced in this set, issued to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the 50p. It contains reissued editions of the 2010 Girl Guiding 50p, the infamous 2009 Kew Gardens 50p, the 2007 Scouting 50p, the 2004 Four Minute Mile 50p and the classic Britannia 50p. These coins are each struck in 15.50 grams of 916.7 gold to proof standard. Intended for collectors, proof coins have a finer finish than their circulating counterparts, allowing you to enjoy these designs as the artists intended. Each coin has a diameter of 27.30 millimetres, the same as circulating coins. Two of the reverses show the original dates of issue while the obverses all feature Jody Clark’s portrait of Her Majesty the Queen along with the date the set was issued: 2019. These coins come in an attractive wooden case from The Royal Mint with a information booklet and a certificate of authenticity enclosed. A prestige set for the serious 50 Pence collector.
