50th Anniversary of Concorde Silver Proof 50p
2019 marks 50 years since the first flight of the legendary Concorde.
First flown in 1969, Concorde entered service in 1976 and continued flying for the next 27 years. It is one of only two supersonic transports to have been operated commercially. It had a maximum speed over twice the speed of sound at Mach 2.04 (1,354 mph).
.925 Solid Silver
Now, to commemorate this historic milestone, a stunning new British Isles Silver 50p Coin has been approved.
The 50th Anniversary of Concorde Silver Proof 50p will be struck from .925 Solid Silver to a pristine Proof finish – the best possible finish available on a coin.
The reverse will feature a specially commissioned engraved design of Concorde, by artist Andrew Harris, moments after take-off.
Just 2,019 Available
An extremely limited worldwide mintage of JUST 2,019 has been set for this incredible coin.
The Silver 50p coin has rapidly become the British Isles' most collectable coin, spurred on by the incredible success of recent releases, with sell-outs almost guaranteed.
I expect demand for this brand new Concorde Silver 50p to be just as high. If you would like to own one you'll need to be quick.
This superb keepsake will be the ideal way to pay tribute to the most famous commercial aircraft ever produced – a true icon of the sky!
