2018 Father Christmas™ 50p Gold Proof Coin

  Description    Specifications     Free Delivery  


Significant gold coin release celebrating iconic Christmas character created by Raymond Briggs – extremely limited numbers available

2018 has seen the release of a brand new coin issued to celebrate Raymond Briggs’s iconic Father Christmas character beloved by young and old throughout the country since it was first created in 1973. A gold version of the new 50p coin has been released with a mintage of just 199.

Low Mintage

With the recent success of the Snowman 50p gold coin (also the work of Raymond Briggs) that sold out within minutes despite an edition limit over double in size, we expect these 199 gold coins to go extremely quickly.  Struck in 22 Carat Gold to a peerless proof finish the new Father Christmas™ 50p coin is presented in a Deluxe Presentation Case for safekeeping – and comes complete with Certificate of Authenticity confirming the low mintage.

Already SOLD OUT at Mint

Just a total of 199 gold coins have been struck and as a result of the exceptional demand that is expected, all will be snapped up extremely quickly - indeed, the coin has already sold out at the mint.  However, Harrington & Byrne was fortunate to secure an exclusive allocation and you can secure one of these today if you order now - but you will need to act immediately to avoid missing out.
