Just 500 Sherlock Holmes™ 50p DateStamp™ issues available

***76% SOLD***

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was the creator of the iconic Sherlock Holmes™. The ‘consulting detective’ and his unique way of discovering thieves and murders became an instant favourite with Victorian readers, and remains so to this day.

And now, in celebration of the 160th Anniversary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s birth, a new United Kingdom 50p featuring the legendary Sherlock Holmes™ has been authorised for release.

This new 50p coin has been struck by The Royal Mint to a pristine Brilliant Uncirculated finish and the design of the coin by Stephen Raw encourages collectors to do some sleuthing of their own. Using a magnifying glass – like an intrepid detective – you can discover 16 titles in the Sherlock Holmes™ canon engraved around the profile of the famous detective.

Just 500 available worldwide - a sell-out is likely

Thousands of the new Brilliant Uncirculated Sherlock Holmes™ 50p Coins will be struck by the Royal Mint, however only 500 will be available to own in this exclusive DateStamp™ Issue - an extremely limited way to own this new 50p coin.

DateStamp issues are always extremely popular with collectors, and have a strong sell-out history. In fact, the last 50p DateStamp release – the Stephen Hawking 50p – sold out within a matter of MINUTES. All signs suggest this issue is likely to sell-out just as quickly.

Your coin will be officially postmarked by Royal Mail with the anniversary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s birthday – 22.05.2019. What’s more, each coin comes protectively sealed in a tamper-proof numismatic capsule with its own unique serial number so you can even register it online to receive your official DateStamp™ registration certificate.

Remember, because of the special one-day-only postmark, just 500 of these issues will ever be made available. A sell-out is expected, so act now to ensure you add this issue to your collection.

Don’t miss out, pre-order yours today.
