EXTREMELY LOW EDITION LIMIT
The East India Company are known for highly sought-after, exclusive coin releases so it’s no surprise this silver proof 50p issue will have an extremely low edition limit.
In fact, only 3,500 will be available worldwide for this new release. This tiny number will not be enough – the first ever Winnie the Pooh silver coin had an edition limit of FIVE TIMES that at 18,000 and is no longer available at The Royal Mint. Which means thousands are set to miss out.
The Hare and the Tortoise
The Hare and the Tortoise silver proof 50p will be the first in an exciting new collection, focusing on the fables told by Ancient Greek Storyteller, Aesop.
Despite this well-known fable, you’ll need to be quick to secure your own brand-new Hare and the Tortoise silver proof 50p.
The Goose that laid the Golden Egg
The East India Company have also treated collectors with a first look at the second 50p in the Aesop’s Fables series – The Goose that laid the Golden Egg. It’s also rumoured to have the same tiny edition limit as the first coin in the series, but it won’t be available until July.
