Whilst Shepherds watched their flock by night… FIVE Guernsey Christmas Carol 50ps have been issued!
It’s time to dust off your stockings and light the fire because Christmas is officially round the corner!
And, there’s nothing like a carol service to get you in the Christmas spirit. So, to celebrate this very festive tradition, FIVE brand new coins have been authorised for release by Guernsey Treasury!
The Christmas Carol 50p Coin Collection
Each coin features a specially commissioned design of some of the most renowned Christmas carols including; Away in a Manger, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, O Little Town of Bethlehem, While Shepherds watched their flocks, and We Three Kings.
These coins have been authorised for release by Guernsey Treasury and fully approved by Her Majesty the Queen.
The Christmas Carol 50p BU Set
Available in Brilliant Uncirculated quality, all five coins are housed in a festive presentation pack and importantly, this is one of the only ways to own all five of these coins as a complete set!

The Christmas Carol 50p Silver Proof Set
Or, for those collectors looking for a little more Christmas sparkle, these coins are also available in stunning .925 Solid Silver.
What’s more, they feature stunning coloured illustrations by Jo Goodberry (you may remember she designed the immensely popular Pantomime 50ps last year) and have been struck to a pristine Proof finish.
These 50ps are only available as a set and if you don’t want to miss the chance to own them, you’ll need to act fast, as they have been issued with some incredibly low edition limits…
An extremely limited worldwide mintage of JUST 2,020 has been set for the incredible .925 Silver set.
The coins will arrive ready to display in a deluxe presentation case with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Hark the Herald 50p Christmas Card
Struck to a superior Brilliant Uncirculated quality, the ‘Hark the Herald’ 50p from the Brand New Christmas Carol 50p collection has been presented in a beautiful Christmas card which has been left blank inside to write your own personalised message to someone special.
This specially commissioned design by Jo Goodberry features a silhouette of an angel with the title of the carol ‘Hark the Herold’ to the right of the coin. What’s more, the ‘Hark the Herold’ Christmas 50p is the only coin from the collection to be available individually within this stunning Christmas card.
The 50p has firmly established itself as the collector’s favourite, and as such demand for this BRAND NEW Christmas 50p is bound to be incredibly high, especially when you consider the popularity of last year’s Christmas Pantomime 50ps.
You can secure the Hark the Herald 50p Christmas card today for JUST £7.99 (+p&p) by clicking here >>
The Christmas Carol 50p BU Complete Cover
For the creme-de-la-creme, and by far the most limited way to own these coins, the Christmas Carol 50p BU Complete Cover has been issued.
Each coin has been struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, and is one of just 750 that have been allocated for use in your cover. Almost certainly, this is the smallest edition presentation of the new BU 50p coins that you’re likely to see.
Paired alongside your coins is the complete set of elusive 1984 Official Royal Mail Christmas Carol Stamps. Featuring classic carols such as While Shepherds Watch and We Three Kings, these stamps are without a doubt the perfect pairing to your coins.
Each stamp has also been officially postmarked on the first day of Advent, 1st December 2020”.

Sought-after Guernsey coins
Last year, Guernsey Treasury released their FIRST-EVER Christmas coins, the Pantomime 50p collection and these were incredibly popular with collectors both in Guernsey and the UK!
Guernsey mintage figures are known for being much smaller than the UK, which is down to their much smaller population of just over 63,000, which makes their coinage incredibly sought-after!
But it’s fair to say that Christmas themed coins make a particularly envious addition to anyone’s collection, with the numerous festive 50ps from the Isle of Man proving to be incredibly popular.
Collectors have been known to pay over £20 for a festive 50p from the British Isles and Channel Islands, so we expect these brand new Christmas Carol 50ps to be incredibly sought-after!
We love these brand new coins and we’re sure collectors everywhere will too!
