Buy a 2019 Fifty Years Of The Fifty Pence Silver Proof Coin

When it was introduced in 1969, the Fifty Pence piece was the world’s first seven sided coin. The design had gone through many iterations in the lead up to its launch, and Decimal Day, including ten and twelve sided versions as well as a square option. Ultimately, the seven rounded sides were chosen as they would be easy to distinguish from other coins - both by sight and feeling - and they would still be able to roll in vending machines. In the subsequent fifty years, this well-loved coin has featured over seventy different designs, from commemorating battles and individuals, to celebrating fictional characters and sporting achievements. The first 50p reverse was designed by prolific numismatic artist, Christopher Ironside, and this commemorative edition returns to Ironside’s iconic design. It features Britannia sat with a shield, a lion lies next to her as she holds an olive branch and trident aloft. Around the edge of this special edition, are the letters A to G in recognition of the engineering process involved I minting the coin. On the opposite side of the coin to Britannia, is Jody Clark’s 2015 portrait of The Queen which is the fifth official effigy on modern coinage. This silver proof 50 pence piece is one of 3,510 in this presentation. It weighs the standard 8.00 grams with a diameter of 27.30 millimetres, and is struck in .925 sterling silver. You will receive this popular collectors coin in its original packaging, with certificate of authenticity.
