Limited edition 22-carat gold proof 2019 Fifty Pence Sherlock Holmes coin. One of just 400 issued! Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote 'A Study in Scarlett' the first novel to feature the world of Sherlock Holmes, London's most famous fictional detective, and Doctor Watson in 1886. In the following decades, over sixty stories followed, including four novels. His detective's inimitable skills of logic and deduction have been re-invented countless times since, including more recently by Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey Jr. To celebrate the 160th anniversary of Conan Doyle's birth in 1859, the UK's national mint released a special Sherlock Holmes coin collection. This gold proof edition comes in its original presentation packaging from The Royal Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed. The reverse of this highly collectable coin features a design by textual artist Stephen Raw. His design shows the profile silhouette of Sherlock Holmes with his iconic deer stalker hat and pipe. Surrounding the image are the titles of numerous of Conan Doyle's most famous stories, including The Hound of the Baskervilles, and The Final Problem. On the obverse is Jody Clark's effigy of Her Majesty the Queen: the fifth definitive portrait of Elizabeth II used on UK coinage. This pre-owned coin is struck in 15.50 grams of 916.7 gold and is the same size as a standard UK 50p, measuring 27.30 millimetres in diameter. A stellar addition to any Sherlock Holmes collection.
