This is the 2009 Gold Proof Kew Gardens Fifty Pence Coin. The coin commemorates the 250th Anniversary of the Foundation of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew.
Only 629 of the gold proof coins were issued, making it one of the most sought after designs. The gold coin is struck to a proof finish and comes with a certificate of authenticity and is displayed in a wooden presentation box.
The Kew Gardens 50p is one of the most in-demand coins to be issued. This gold proof version is struck from 22 carat gold. Proof coins are struck up to 6 times to give them the very best finish. This coin is perfect for collectors.
We've compared our price to our competitors where we have seen the coin listed for £10,000! One website lists the coin for £974, but it is out of stock and will likely never be in stock again at that price.
The obverse shows the fourth coinage portrait of Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The reverse was designed by Christopher Le Brun and shows the Kew Gardens Pagoda, with plants around it. The inscription reads:-
|Carat||22 Carat Gold|
|Actual Gold Weight||0.4600 Troy Ounces|
|Obverse Designer||Ian Rank-Broadley|
|Reverse Designer||Christopher Le Brun|
