The scarce double-thickness version of the 50p that's making history

**Unfortunately this item is now fully allocated**

• Official double-thickness UK Silver Proof 50p marking the life of Stephen Hawking

• Never has a 50p been issued so quickly to commemorate the life of someone

• The first time Hawking has been commemorated on a UK coin and never to be released into general circulation

• Just 2,500 official Piedfort versions have been authorised – less than half the standard Silver Proof 50p



Why I recommend the UK 2019 Stephen Hawking Silver Proof Piedfort 50p Coin…

This brand new double-thickness UK 50p has been issued to mark the life and remarkable achievements of Stephen Hawking. As you can see, the designer has achieved the impossible and managed to fit a black hole onto the surface of a 50p coin.

It’s an exceptional looking coin and a fitting tribute, but it’s the speed at which this coin has been issued after Hawking’s death that means it’s making history. Only Churchill, Princess Diana and the Queen Mother have had coins issued to commemorate them so quickly and they were all on £5 coins. This is a first for a 50p.

Just 2,500 official Silver Proof Piedfort 50p coins have been authorised. That’s less than half the edition limit for the standard Silver Proof 50p, so I expect these to go very quickly. You’ll never see a Stephen Hawking 50p in your change, so this is the choice of the serious collector.
