This 50p coin set includes the highly sought-after Kew Gardens 50 pence coin. Only 629 of these gold proof coins were issued, making them extremely rare.

The set features some red spots, which are a natural process which can occur to gold coins.

Red Spots on Gold Coins

Red spot can occur on almost any gold coin, it certainly happens on 22 carat gold coins. We have seldom seen it on .999(9) fine gold coins, and presume it is virtually impossible for it to occur on actual fine gold (1.000/1.000).

History of the 50p Coin

First issued in 1969, the 50 pence replaced the 10-shilling note becoming the third decimal coin introduced British currency.  Despite its introduction in the late 1960’s, the coins heritage can be traced far before this, with silver half pound coins being issued around 1559 and 1646, and the still popular today, half sovereign coming to fruition in 1544.

Unusual Shape

What set the 50 pence apart was its heptagonal shape which was a unique trait, rarely found within British coinage at the time, until the circulation of the 20 pence in 1982. 

Obverse

All the coins' obverses feature Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of HM The Queen. This is the forth coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
