2009 UK 50p Gold Proof Collection
A collection of all the commemorative 50 pence pieces issued in the 40 years since the 50 pence was introduced into circulation.
This delightful set not only shows the history of the fifty pence, but also the history of our country. As the coins celebrated ad commemorated a number of events, this set allows you to see each of the events forever immortalised in our coinage.
The set comes with a fully illustrated information booklet about the fifty pence and each of the events the coins commemorate.
We have recently acquired one of these sets from the secondary market. The issue number is 025 out of 125 minted.
