Marking the 150th Anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s tales of nonsense the first Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 50p Coins saw unprecedented demand. From coin collectors to Alice fans, demand has been huge and as a result the coins have become some of the most popular numismatic collections this year!
So, it felt only right to enter the fantastical world again, one last time…
Today, I’m proud to introduce a brand new collection of British Isles 50p coins, this time celebrating the sequel; ‘Through the Looking-glass and what Alice found there’.
Just like the first Alice coins, they have been authorised for release by Isle of Man Treasury and fully approved by Her Majesty the Queen. However, this time they feature brand new designs of some of the most beloved characters from the sequel.
I’m sure you’ll agree that these will be just as, if not even more popular than the first! Find out more about these new coins and how to order them below…
The COMPLETE Brilliant Uncirculated 50p Set
This stunning collection features all five new 50p coins, each struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality and featuring carefully curated designs by renowned illustrator Stephen Lee. These include:
- Alice “Life, what is it but a dream”.
- The Red Queen “The Queen cried ‘faster, faster!‘”
- The White Queen “That’s the effect of living backwards”.
- Tweedledum & Tweedledee “There’s nothing to cry about!”
- March Hare “There’s nothing but hay left now”.
What’s more, the coins will come protectively housed in a bespoke presentation pack that has also been designed by the artist. This set is one of the only ways you can own all FIVE coins and demand has already been extremely high.
The STRICTLY LIMITED Silver Proof 50p
The Silver Proof version of the stunning Alice 50p coin features a specially commissioned illustration of Alice, about to enter Wonderland again through the Looking-glass, alongside an excerpt from the book; “Life, what is it but a dream”.
The coin has been struck to a flawless Proof finish from .925 Sterling Silver with selective vivid colour printing to bring Alice to life!
Silver 50p coins are, without a doubt, the collector’s favourite due to their strict edition limits. And this brand new Silver 50p is no different, with an edition of JUST 4,995 pieces – the same as the first Alice 50p which has been hugely popular!
The ULTIMATE Silver Proof 50p Collection
The Silver Proof set is by far one of the most limited and exclusive ways you can own all five new 50ps. Given the unprecedented demand for first Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 50p coins, which quickly became some of most popular numismatic collections of 2021, the decision to keep the edition limit at JUST 1,995 is a surprising one. Collectors are sure to miss out.
Each coin is struck from .925 Silver, to a Proof finish, with the addition of colour and comes ready to present in a case alongside a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
EDITION LIMIT SLASHED: The SCARCE Gold Proof 50p
If you’re looking for the most premium and limited way to own one of these brand new Alice Through the Looking-Glass 50p coins, then this is it.
Struck in .916 Gold to a flawless proof finish, this coin is guaranteed to be popular with serious collectors. However many are set to miss out, that’s because the edition limit is JUST ONE FIFTH of the previous release – slashed to JUST 100 worldwide!
This is MUCH LOWER than other recent Gold Proof 50p releases that have completely sold out, so only a handful of lucky collectors will have the chance to own this prestigious coin.
