A new gold fifty pound sovereign to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Britain’s last pre-decimal coins –  inspired by the design of the last pre-decimal halfcrown!

This year marks fifty years since Britain’s last pre-decimal coins and the end of a thousand years of pounds, shillings and pence. This is an anniversary of great importance: there are now generations who don’t know that twelve pennies could make a shilling, and twenty shillings could make a pound. They have known ONLY decimal coinage – which means centuries of our history and tradition has passed them by.

That’s why it’s important that we remember the pre-decimal coinage.  To convey the importance of this anniversary to the history of British coinage, a new sovereign has been struck.

What makes this new gold fifty pound sovereign coin exciting is that it  features a design inspired by the last pre-decimal halfcrown, shield of Royal Arms. This design has never before been minted on a gold sovereign coin.  This makes it of incredible interest to collectors, as a way to own some of Britain’s most important national symbols from our pre-decimal era, but in solid 22 carat gold!

New gold fifty pound sovereign pays tribute to historic pre-decimal designs

This design brings back to life the motifs that once appeared on Britain’s everyday coinage, only now in this 50th anniversary year they appear in glorious 22 carat gold.  Authorised by Tristan Da Cunha, and approved by both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Buckingham  Palace, it is a wonderful celebration.

Benefit from the SELL OUT GUARANTEE

Sell Out Guarantee

The 2020 Pre-decimal 50th Anniversary Gold Fifty Pound Sovereign is limited to just 20 coins, but this is subject to our new SELL OUT GUARANTEE. What this means is that availability of this coin will end on 28th February  2021. At that time, any coins that are unsold will be melted down and verified to that effect.

At that point, we will issue to owners of this coin a new certificate stating the final mintage which may be lower, or possibly considerably lower, than 20. If the mintage remains at 20 then this means the coins sold out entirely to keen customers, and if not you may have secured for yourself a low mintage rarity.

Either way, there will be little or no surplus of this coin on the secondary market and so the coin you own will be a rarity!
