In 1969, one of Britain’s most collectable modern numismatic treasures appeared for the first time… the 50p! In the years that followed, coin collectors around the world have competed to get their hands on the Royal Mint’s most compelling designs.
Now, to celebrate the 50p turning 50 years old, the Royal Mint re-issued some of their most popular designs. Danbury Mint proudly presents… The 50 years of the Fifty Pence Piedfort Collection, a stunning set of ten double-thickness silver proof fifty pence pieces accompanied by an extra special NEW design commemorating this special occasion! The silver Piedfort coins are beautifully housed in a deluxe glass-topped wooden display, which makes an awe-inspiring tribute to cherish for generations. This collection guarantees you all eleven Piedfort coins, making it a complete collection, a collector’s ideal.
Piedfort coins… a collector’s dream
A landmark anniversary of this scale deserves the highest recognition by the Royal Mint – Piedfort silver proof coins. This is the ultimate accolade and is only given to the most important events, which is why it is so exciting that the Royal Mint have issued not one, but eleven 92.5% silver proof Piedfort coins! Piedfort coins are so sought after as they are twice as thick as their standard issue counterparts, meaning twice as heavy and twice as much silver!
As part of this exciting collection, you will receive an extra-special Piedfort 50p issued in 2019 to commemorate this occasion. It features a special privy mark and outer rim markings, harking back to its original scientific design.
Your collection will include:
- The prestige of Piedfort – each coin is struck with double thickness.
- All ten reissued 50p coins in stunning 92.5% silver proof standard.
