The D-Day 50p Face Value Giveaway

2024 marks 80 years since the historic event that turned the tide of the Second World War, forever remembered as D-Day. In commemoration, The Royal Mint has struck an official UK 50p.

This UK legal tender coin hasn’t entered circulation. However, we feel that a coin as momentous as this should be more widely available. Which is why we’re giving collectors the chance to get their hands on one for FACE-VALUE. That’s JUST 50p, POST FREE!

In fact, we have an incredible 7,000 D-Day 50ps up for grabs at this special face-value price…

So how can you get your hands on one?

Every time a new UK 50p is released, collectors on our Coin Launch Ballot list are given the opportunity to own the new issue for just 50p. Indeed, 1,000 Change Checkers are already lucky launch ballot winners able to secure this special offer.

1,000 further coins were available for the nation to own at face-value as in our National Ballot.

And, that’s not all, as we’re also taking this 50p with us to our upcoming live events, with an additional 5,000 coins available to swap!

5,000 D-Day 50ps Available to Swap at Change Checker Live!

We took 2,000 D-Day 50ps to Duxford Air Show on 1st and 2nd June to swap for just face value. You can watch the highlights from the show here >>

Make sure you’re following us across our social channels for details of our next event later in the year, where we’ll be swapping our final batch of D-Day 50ps at face-value!

An All-Time Favourite 50p

It’s been 30 years since the UK’s first D-Day 50p was released – struck to the larger specifications that can no longer be found in your change.

6.7 million of these were released into general circulation in 1994, but were removed when the new, smaller 50ps were issued in 1997.

However, this still proves to be a much-loved coin and was even voted as the all-time favourite 50p amongst Change Checkers.

As such, the new D-Day 50p promises to be highly sought-after collector coin.


Can’t wait to own the NEW D-Day 50p?

    Is the 50 p that you can win in the lottery the same as the 50 p coin that you can purchase for £5.99

      Hi Rickard, the D-Day 50p available in the ballot was the same as the D-Day 50p you can buy on our website.
      I hope that helps! Kate
