NEW Coronation 50ps sing the National Anthem
The dawn of a new monarchy is upon us, and with King Charles III at the helm, history is being written before our very eyes.
And as the Coronation date nears, it’s beginning to hit home how momentous the occasion will be. To celebrate, the Isle of Man have issued The National Anthem Coronation 50p Coin Set. And they’ve been fully approved by the King himself.
Let us guide you through these remarkable 50p coins and how you can secure them for your collection…
All five 50ps have been designed by Tom Meek. They feature famous lines from the National Anthem, alongside two different heraldic beasts on each coin.
These ancestral and heraldic beasts watched over Her Majesty the Queen during her unprecedented reign and will now do the same for King Charles III.
The 10 beasts featured on these new 50ps comprise of ‘The Lion of England’, ‘The White Greyhound of Richmond’, ‘The Yale of Beaufort’, ‘The Red Dragon of Wales’, ‘The White Horse of Hanover’, ‘The White Lion of Mortimer’, ‘The Unicorn of Scotland’, ‘The Griffin of Edward III’, ‘The Black Bull of Clarence’ and ‘The Falcon of the Plantagenets’.
Together, representing strength, purity and power, these beasts are the perfect choice for such a significant new 50p coin collection. Each 50p is struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality and features the brand new British Isles portrait of His Majesty by Glyn Davies.
Can I find these 50ps in my change?
If you’re living on the Isle of Man, then yes!
Just 2,500 of each of these new coins will enter circulation on the Isle of Man. When you compare that to the mintage figures for UK coins (our rarest 50p in circulation has a mintage of 210,000), you’ll realise just how few of these coins are actually out there. This is certain to increase the collectability even more.
Isle of Man Coins – worth keeping an eye on?
Isle of Man coins are worth keeping an eye on. They typically have lower mintage figures due to the smaller population of just 84,000. This means that their coins are particularly sought-after amongst collectors.
They have issued some very popular coins in recent years including Peter Pan 50ps and the annual TT £2s to name just a couple that have piqued the interest of collectors.
But this is why they’re worth looking out for. More often than not, their mintage figures are MUCH LOWER than UK coins, making them especially sought-after by collectors.
So, what does this mean for collectors?
Previous Isle of Man issues have been incredibly popular with coin collectors, so demand is already set to be high for these new 50ps.
And, given the significance of this event, I’m sure that 50p collectors will be quick to snap these ones up!
This NEW 50p set is surely a MUST-HAVE for any serious coin collector, so if you’d like to secure one for your collection for JUST £34.95 (+p&p) then click here >>>
The new Coronation National Anthem 50ps are struck to an unblemished Brilliant Uncirculated finish.
What’s more, your coins will come protectively housed in a specifically designed bespoke presentation pack.

The Stephen Hawking 50p was so popular that it sold out of ALL precious metal specifications on launch day — this, in turn, then drove a high demand for the BU issue.
