For 50 years, the 50p has been a favourite among British collectable coinage. Despite initial controversy, the world’s first seven-sided coin has revolutionised UK coin collecting, homing designs celebrating the very best of Britain.
While some of these coins enter circulation, others remain purely commemoratives but all are highly sought-after by collectors all around the world.
Now, any collector worth their salt will know that the more unusual, limited and prestigious the coin is, the more collectable it becomes. As such, every collector I speak to is looking for the most unique ways to own the latest and greatest 50p coins.
This got me thinking about how I could help…
Exclusively for you, I have curated a range of some of the most coveted 50p coins in some of the most premium and strictly limited presentations available worldwide!
We’ve just aired our collectable 50p show and it’s gone down a treat! If you missed it, you can catch the whole thing here and see for yourself why these 50p picks are not to be missed!
Here is my rundown of the range which is sure to make your 50p collection stand out from the crowd…
Capture the magic of collecting with the brand new Peter Pan 50p Hand-Signed Framed Edition – limited to just 250!
If you haven’t seen these coins yet, where have you been?
Issued earlier this year by the Isle of Man, these brand-new Peter Pan 50p coins had collectors literally queuing to get hold of them! The coins have been exclusively designed and feature original artist interpretations of all your favourite Peter Pan characters, adorned with beloved quotes from JM Barrie’s original tale.
In this special edition, David Wyatt, the artist behind these striking coins, has created a brilliant, full colour depiction of the enchanted Neverland to compliment the coins perfectly. The coins and artwork have been professionally mounted and framed, making the finished piece a truly refined collectable.
Just 495 of these brand-new frames will ever be issued worldwide and just 250 of these have been hand-signed and hand-numbered by David himself, making this one of the rarest ways to own the 2019 British Isles Peter Pan 50p coins. Plus, it makes a truly breath-taking wall hanging for a child’s bedroom.
Now, the thing to remember about collectability is the power of the story behind the coin. I’m sure many of you know that JM Barrie gifted his rights in Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity in 1929, an incredible gesture which has helped the hospital care for seriously ill children for over 90 years now.
With this in mind, a donation from every frame sold will be made to GOSH charity, continuing JM Barrie’s treasured legacy.
The most unique way to own the 2019 Peter Rabbit 50p
The Beatrix Potter 50p series is arguably the series which sparked the nation’s love-affair with the commemorative 50p coin. In fact, collectors were devastated to find out that the 2019 Peter Rabbit 50p release would not be entering circulation!
What’s more, both the Gold and Silver Proof versions of this coin have completely sold out at the mint and the only way to own it now it struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish – personally, this is my favourite standard of coin because it is free from the imperfections of circulating metal!
Paired with an authentic porcelain trinket box, officially licensed and designed to feature the original artwork of Beatrix Potter, this exclusive presentation is one of the rarest and most special ways to own the 2019 Peter Rabbit 50p! More than that, this traditional collectable is the perfect gift for any young collector.
The ultimate tribute to the 50p including the Kew Gardens 50p – over 80% sold!
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the 50p. To celebrate, The Royal Mint released a set of new-issue coins, celebrating the best of British culture, as seen of the face of the 50p over the last 50 years.
Here are my 5 main reasons that no collector can afford to miss out on this set:
- The set features a new-issue Kew Gardens 50p, the original of which is the rarest and most desired 50p coin in existence!
- Each coin has been paired with full colour, original artwork, designed by artist Diane Fawcett to compliment the coin it frames.
- Just 2,019 of these presentations will ever be issued and over 80% have already been snapped up!
- The coins have been struck to a BU finish, the superior quality that collectors are looking for!
- The coins and artwork have been encapsulated in tamper-proof casing to preserve their unblemished condition for years to come.
