Elizabeth II, 50 Pence EU Uncirculated, 1973

In 1973 we were still using the old large size 50 Pence coin. In 1973 the Royal Mint issued it’s first ever commemorative 50 Pence coin. At that time you could only buy the proof version in cupro-nickel, how times have changed. No silver, no silver piedfort, no gold, no platinum just the base metal the coin was issued in, but it did come in a red leatherette case. So what happened? Just as you suspected, everyone wanted one of the new commemorative Fifty Pence pieces in Proof condition, so that even today they are not all that hard to get. But the error that most collectors made was in not putting aside this first commemorative coin in Uncirculated condition… Because we now know that the 1973 Fifty Pence piece is much scarcer in Uncirculated condition than the Proof coin. So when we bought a small group the other month we were delighted, after all we know that this coin is scarce and missing from many collections. But just because it is Scarce in this condition does not mean that it will cost you a fortune. If you have the Proof you just might want to add an Uncirculated example to your collection as well. The Uncirculated Coin is Scarcer Than the Proof!

Elizabeth II, EEC 50 Pence Proof, 1973

There has been all this noise about the Brexit coin released recently by the Royal Mint. We are now going to offer you the first Real Brexit Coin. Namely the old large sized 50 Pence that was issued in 1973, some 47 years ago when we joined the European Union. You cannot leave unless you are already a member! This coin is the old large style 50 Pence and it depicted 9 hands of the European Community holding each other in a circle. Far fewer members, far easier to get things done. This original First Real Brexit Coin was struck in cupro-nickel in both Uncirculated and Proof condition. They are a lot more difficult to find than the new Brexit coin and are of course 47 years old and to be honest perhaps cheaper.
