JUST 995 available – NEW UK Decimal Day 50p Coin Cover

15th February 1971 was the day that British currency as we knew it changed forever.

As every serious coin collector knows, Decimal Day was a huge turning point for UK coinage and postage, as we waved goodbye to Pounds, Shillings and Pence.

Now, to mark the significant 50th anniversary of Decimal Day, a BRAND NEW UK BU 50p Coin Cover has been authorised for release…  

Official UK BU 50p Coin and Stamp Selection

The Silver Decimal Day Coin Cover carries Royal Mail’s 1st Class Definitive decimal stamp alongside a lilac Wilding pre-decimal stamp. This exclusive pairing perfectly captures the change that Decimalisation brought to the UK.

These stamps are presented alongside the UK 2021 Decimal Day 50p. This coin has been expertly struck by The Royal Mint to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish – this means your coin has been specially struck and carefully handled to avoid the scratches and chips found amongst their circulating counterparts. 

JUST 995 Available Worldwide

Thousands of Brilliant Uncirculated UK Decimal Day BU 50p coins will be struck by The Royal Mint, but ONLY 995 have been kept aside for this special coin cover. This is one of the most limited ways to own this important 50p.

What's more, the cover has been officially postmarked by Royal Mail, with a bespoke cancellation confirming the exact start date of the 50th anniversary of Decimal Day – 15th February 2021.

This one-day-only postmark, and the fact that each cover is individually numbered, further confirms the strict 995 worldwide edition limit, and means no more can ever be produced.
