The Royal Mint have struck a brand new UK Harry Potter 50p, featuring the wise headmaster of Hogwarts: Professor Dumbledore!
Featuring King Charles III for the first time
But Dumbledore is not the only figure to feature for the first time. Unlike the two previous 50p coins in the series, King Charles III’s portrait also appears on the coin!
This is the FIRST TIME we’ve seen both effigies of Queen Elizabeth II and King Charles III feature in a UK 50p series! Therefore, collectors of both monarch portraits are likely to secure all four for their collections…
With this unusual collecting story making these 50p coins even more collectable, you’ll need to act fast to get your hands on one! Click here to secure yours now for just £4.99 (+p&p) >>
The Professor Dumbledore design
The detailed design of Professor Dumbledore is an illustration by artist Jim Kay, which can be found within the pages of the 2015 Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone book!
And, as with the other coins in the series, the 2023 UK Professor Dumbledore 50p features a special lenticular feature. By moving the coin back and forth, you can see the lenticular area show two different symbols: a lightning bolt, and the number 25!
The lightning bolt is an iconic symbol in the Harry Potter series, as it is the shape of Harry’s scar. Meanwhile, the number 25 features to mark 25 years since the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone!
First UK Harry Potter 50p
In 2022, The Royal Mint struck the first UK Harry Potter 50p. It’s design depicts Harry himself, and saw incredible demand from both Harry Potter fans and 50p collectors alike.
Hogwarts Express 50p
Soon after, the Hogwarts Express 50p was issued as the second coin in the series! It features Jim Kay’s illustration of the iconic train that takes Hogwarts students to the wizarding school.
As the last coin in the series to feature Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy, collectors were eager to get their hands on the Hogwarts Express 50p!
2023 UK Professor Dumbledore 50p
As the first Harry Potter 50p featuring King Charles III, the 2023 UK Professor Dumbledore 50p is sure to cause a stir amongst 50p collectors. Especially those starting their King Charles III coin collection!
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry 50p
We are yet to see the launch of the fourth and final 50p coin in the series. But, we do know it will feature another of Jim Kay’s wonderful illustrations. In particular, the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!
Collectors will surely be racing to complete their Harry Potter 50p collections, especially after the unusual dual-portrait reveal…
