The official UK Brexit 50p Silver Coin - sold out at the Royal Mint
On the 31st January 2020 the United Kingdom officially left the European Union after 47 years of membership.
Whichever way you may have voted, it is difficult to argue that Brexit was at the time the most significant political event in our nation’s post-war history - and it was only right that the momentous day of departure was commemorated with the release of an official UK coin.
Historic occasion for the United Kingdom
Therefore, to mark this key event the Royal Mint released a brand-new silver coin – but with limited numbers, the coin has quickly sold out. The good news is that Harrington & Byrne was successful in securing some of these coins before the sell out and can offer you the opportunity today to add this historic release to your collection.
The brand new 2020-dated silver 50p coin was struck by the Royal Mint in 925/1000 Sterling Silver to an immaculate proof finish. The coin comes housed within official Royal Mint Presentation Case with Certificate of Authenticity.
An edition limit of 47,000 silver coins was set by the Royal Mint – 1,000 coins for every year that the United Kingdom was part of the European Union (and the institutions that came before).
Unprecedented demand expected
Considering the interest in Brexit, especially from the many millions who voted to leave the European Union and collectors of key British coins, it came as no surprise that this 50p silver coin quickly sold out. Therefore, an immediate response is recommended to secure one from Harrington & Byrne.
The new coin carried a reverse design that carries the wording ‘Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations’ alongside the all-important 31st January 2020 departure date.
Limited numbers available
Just 47,000 silver proof 50p coins were issued to mark the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union on the 31st January 2020. When you consider the potential demand from throughout the country and beyond from those who wish to have a keepsake to mark this unprecedented event in our history, you can understand why they were quickly snapped up.
The great news for Harrington & Byrne collectors is that we were able to secure a small amount of these coins – but they are already selling extremely quickly, meaning you will need to act extremely quickly to avoid disappointment.
