The 50th Anniversary of Decimalisation 50p DateStamp™

This year is the 50th anniversary of the biggest change to the UK’s currency in over a thousand years – Decimalisation! You might remember the day yourself, or have heard remarkable stories about tanners and thru’penny bits.

And today you can pay tribute to this incredible moment with a brand new 50p DateStamp™ pair.

Featuring the BRAND NEW UK Anniversary 50p

Earlier this year, a UK 2021 50p was issued to mark the 50th anniversary of Decimal Day (or ‘D-Day’). Featuring a design that pays tribute to the UK’s pre-decimal coinage, and struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, it is the perfect commemorative for this historic event.

What’s more, just 2,021 have been set aside to be paired alongside an ORIGINAL UK 1969 50p coin – the very first 50p to be issued in the UK. That makes this surely one of the most exclusive ways to own this 50p. 

Since its release the 50p coin has become one of the most sought after of all the UK’s circulating coins, attracting huge collector interest and becoming one of the of the most competitive areas of collecting internationally. 

Official one-day only postmark

Your coins will come officially postmarked by Royal Mail on 15.02.21- 50 years to the day of Decimalisation.

And because of the official Royal Mail one-day only postmark, no more of these DateStamp™ issues can ever be released. That’s why DateStamp™ is consistently highly-sought after and what makes them some of the most collectable issues around.

Limited number Available – ACT NOW

Just 2,021 of these DateStamp™ issues will ever be made available. Given that Decimalisation is a collecting phenomenon across the UK, that’s barely going to be enough for UK collectors. 

The good news is you can secure your 50th Anniversary of Decimalisation 50p DateStamp™ Pair today for JUST £24.99 (+p&p).

You’ll need to act quickly. DateStamp™ issues have some of the quickest sell out records around, and once they’re gone no more will ever be made.
