Why I recommend the EIC 2022 Hare & Tortoise Silver Proof 50p Coin…

The East India Company has just announced their very first 7-sided 50p coin, with the launch of a beautiful coin honouring perhaps the most famous Aesop’s Fable – the Hare & the Tortoise.

It’s a stunning design on a coin that has become synonymous with colour-printed stories from our childhoods. Peter Rabbit, Winnie the Pooh and more have graced UK 50p coins in recent coins and propelled the Silver Proof 50p coin to be the “sell-out” coin.

And what’s really exciting about this new release is the edition limit. Whilst UK coins have been selling out limits in the tens of thousands, just 3,500 Silver Proof Hare & Tortoise 50p coins will ever be available.
