15th February 1971 was the day that British currency as we knew it changed forever.
As every serious coin collector knows, Decimal Day as it was dubbed was a huge turning point for UK coinage, as we waved goodbye to Pounds, Shillings and Pence.
Now, to mark the 50th anniversary of what was the biggest change to UK currency in over a thousand years, The Royal Mint has issued a BRAND NEW UK Silver Piedfort 50p coin...
50th Anniversary of Decimal Day Silver Piedfort 50p
Piedforts are visual talking points and the pinnacle of Royal Mint craftsmanship. They are highly-sought after amongst collectors and stand out for several reasons:
- Twice the weight and thickness of a regular silver proof coin.
- Struck from double the amount of .925 silver to a perfect proof finish.
- Low edition limits resulting in some of the fastest sell-out rates around.
Future collecting priority – JUST 2,500 worldwide
What’s perhaps more important though, than its size and design, is its edition limit – JUST 2,500 worldwide – less than HALF the limit of the standard silver proof issue, making it incredibly scarce and surely not enough to meet demand.
Don’t forget, the Sherlock Holmes Silver Piedfort 50p with an edition limit of 2,500 completely sold out within 12 hours. That’s the SAME edition limit as this new Decimal Day Silver Piedfort 50p!
A complete sell-out is expected. Especially when you consider the significance of Decimal Day. It’s sure to be a coin that every serious coin collector will want for their collection – after all, this anniversary is intrinsic to coin collecting!
