2022 Platinum Jubilee 50p Silver Proof
Limited edition silver proof 2022 Platinum Jubilee 50p.
Celebrating 70 Years
In February 2022, Her Majesty the Queen will celebrate seven decades on the throne. She succeeded her father at the age of 25 in 1952 and was crowned the next year.
No previous British monarch has celebrated a Platinum Jubilee so its no surprise that The Royal Mint has gone all out on its range of commemorative coinage, issued just ahead of the anniversary.
A special reverse for the 2022 Sovereign was commissioned to mark the occasion and now we've been offered a comprehensive range of £5 Crowns, 50ps and large precious metal pieces with special designs, inspired by historic coinage and Elizabeth II's life of service.
First Royal Fifty Pence
Royal events and anniversaries are generally celebrated by The Royal Mint on Crown-sized pieces. This 2022 Fifty Pence marks the first time a monarchic milestone has featured on this denomination.
The reverse shows a minimal '70' motif by design agency Osborne Ross with a royal cypher and the anniversary dates (1952-2022) within the zero.
This is paired with a unique equestrian obverse portrait - only used for coins in the 2022 Platinum Jubilee collection - by experienced coinage artist John Bergdahl. The legend reads: 'ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 50 PENCE' with the date below, cut by the tail of a garter motif.
Sterling Silver Proof
Struck to flawless proof standard, this Fifty Pence piece is composed of 8.00 grams of .925 sterling silver. It's the same size as a regular circulating 50p with a diameter of 27.30 millimetres.
Only 5,000 of these gold proof coins have been offered by The Royal Mint.
Your Platinum Jubilee 50p will be presented in its original, box, case and capsule from The Royal Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Its the perfect gift for the royal fan in your life and a great way to remember a record-breaking anniversary.
