Elizabeth II, 50 Pence (Dictionary) 2005 Silver Proof

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...

Elizabeth II, 50 Pence (Suffragette) 2003 Piedfort Sterling Silver

In 2003 the Royal Mint honoured the 100th anniversary of the Suffragette Movement 1903-2003 with a special commemorative Fifty Pence Piece. The Fifty Pence is our most popular and most collected denomination. You have a Suffragette chained to a fence with a poster that reads ‘Give Women the Vote’. Despite a very popular denomination, the mintages are very low for this issue. They only made 6,267 in Sterling Silver Proof and 6,795 in Piedfort Sterling Silver. Each coin comes in a protective capsule that allows you to see both sides without having to handle the coins. One issue of the 50p coins that is overlooked by collectors and cataloguers.
