Win A Britannia 2015 UK £50 Fine Silver Coin

The Office Supplies Blog is delighted to announce a competition where one lucky winner will win a Britannia 2015 UK £50 Fine Silver Coin, courtesy of our friends at the Post Office Shop.

Commissioned to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s reign as the longest serving British Monarch, this legal tender coin has been produced by the Royal Mint with a limited run of 100,000 coins.

The coin is set to become another much coveted collector’s item following in the success of several high profile coins over recent years. In 2013 the UK’s first face value £20 coin bearing Benedetto Pistrucci’s famous St George and the dragon design, to mark the birth of Prince George, sold out within days. A £100 coin featuring Big Ben in December 2014 sold out in 11 days and is now trading amongst collectors for between £130 and £150.

The Britannia 2015 UK £50 Fine Silver Coin is the United Kingdom’s first face value commemorative £50 coin. It is struck in fine silver to Brilliant Uncirculated standard. The coin features Britannia and Her Majesty The Queen which, unusually, have both been designed by the same artist, Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark. This latest design is the fifth definitive portrait of the Queen to appear on circulating coins since her accession to the throne in 1952.

Jody Clark’s designs perfectly complement each other

Britannia has personified the British nation since Roman times, appearing on British coins since the seventeenth century. In 1987 the flagship Britannia coin was launched and is struck annually with Proof editions depicting a new interpretation of the legend every year. In 2015 Britannia returned to the circulating coinage upon the £2 coin.
