Curtain-up for the brand-new Panto 50p coins!
Every Christmas, millions of us put down the wrapping paper for a couple of hours and flock to theatres to indulge in the sheer absurdity and comic genius of Pantomime. It’s a tradition at the heart of festivities in the UK and love it or hate it, we Brits embrace it!
So, with the 50p playing host to some of the most iconic themes in British culture and soaring in popularity in recent years, it is only fitting that the weird and wonderful Panto has earnt its place on the face of the UK’s favourite coin and I’m so excited to share them with you…
A world-first: the coins that Christmas has been waiting for…
FIVE brand-new British Isles 50p coins have literally JUST been released! Issued by Guernsey and fully approved by Her Majesty the Queen and they might just be the most sought-after 50p coins of all time…
The coin designs have been exclusively commissioned by renowned artist Jo Goodberry and feature never-before-seen interpretations of your very favourite Pantos, including:
- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
- Dick Whittington
- Jack and the Beanstalk
These stunning designs capture the fun and frivolity of Panto perfectly and make the ideal Christmas commemorative, whether Panto is central to your Christmas routine or not!
So how can you get hold of them?
The coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated quality, a superior finish void of the blemishes and imperfections on circulating coins, or Silver Proof, the highest standard of strike, unparalleled in detail or finish.
Importantly, a tiny amount of just 4,000 of each coin will be entering circulation in Guernsey, making them exceptionally rare and the chances of finding them very slim!
But, if a trip to Guernsey in search of the coveted Panto 50p coins seems a little excessive, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered…
