The Hare and the Tortoise 50p Silver Coin
East India Company's FIRST EVER seven-sided 50p!
The East India Company have released a Silver 50p – their first seven-sided 50p EVER! It features the age-old fable from Greek storyteller, Aesop: The Hare and the Tortoise.
Struck from .925 Silver
Struck from .925 Silver to a flawless Proof finish, the design shows the tortoise crossing the finish line, highlighted with a colour finish. You can also see the hare snoozing against a tree in the background, ignorant to the tortoise overtaking him!
Your coin will come presented in a luxurious presentation box with a Certificate of Authenticity AND an illustrated story book which really brings the coin to life.
Extremely low edition limit
The East India Company are known for highly sought-after and exclusive coin releases, so it’s no surprise this Silver Proof 50p has an extremely low edition limit.
Only 3,500 are available worldwide for this release. This tiny number will not be enough – the first ever Winnie the Pooh silver coin had an edition limit of FIVE TIMES that at 18,000 and is no longer available at The Royal Mint. Which means thousands are set to miss out.
