DDAY50P 50th Anniv of D-Day Unc 50 Pence. In 1994 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative 50 Pence for the 50th Anniversary of D-Day, one of the most important days in World War II. It was the older large sized 50 Pence and today it is very difficult to find, especially in Uncirculated condition. One of the marketing companies is selling this coin for £11.00, which I think is far too much. True it is difficult to find, but still £11.00 is a lot of money. We have some in stock and are offering it for £6.95, which I believe is a much more realistic and fairer price.
In 2005 the Royal Mint issued a commemorative 50 Pence to honour the 250th anniversary of Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary of the English Language. Without this momentous work, we wouldn’t know what a lot of words mean today. You have a series of words on one side with the inscription ‘Johnson’s Dictionary 1755’. The other side has a portrait of H.M. the Queen and this coin is struck in Proof Sterling Silver. This is also a coin that is missing from many collections, especially in Silver. We believe our price for this older and very important commemorative coin, is less than what the Royal Mint will be charging for this year’s commemorative. Supplies are limited...
Let’s be honest, forget all the bull that is being given out, this was the first Brexit coin. It is an old large-sized 50 Pence which was issued in 1973. It was the first-ever commemorative 50 Pence pieces, the series they are issuing today are based on this coin. It was issued to honour our joining the European Economic Community or EU for short. In 1973 we joined it, in 2021 we are finally rid of it. They were only issued in cupro-nickel but in both Uncirculated and Proof condition. Without this coin, we could never have a coin for leaving the EU, if you aren’t a member you cannot resign. Much underappreciated even though it was our first-ever commemorative 50p, which is now 47 years old. We can offer it in Brilliant Uncirculated, Proof and Proof with the Royal Mint case. The choice is yours.
In 1973 they issued a commemorative 50 Pence to honour our membership in the European Union or EU. In 1998 they issued a second EU 50 Pence to honour our 25th Anniversary of membership of the European Union. In 1973 they issued the coins in cupronickel and cupronickel Proof, in 1998 they issued them in cupronickel, Sterling Silver Proof and Sterling Silver Proof Piedfort. Offered here is the Sterling Silver Proof Coin. The design is a group of star-shaped flowers with stars in the middle to represent the EU membership, today they would have to picture a jungle of flowers.
