The 50p coins that walked in Nelson’s footsteps

What is the world’s oldest naval ship still in commission?

I’ll give you a clue (beyond the one in the title). It’s now in its 245th year of service.

The answer is HMS Victory, probably the most famous ship in Britain.

I was surprised to hear that she is still part of the Royal Navy’s fleet, having never been officially decommissioned.

HMS Victory has been in dry dock for 100 years, but she is the flagship of the First Sea Lord, the military head of the Royal Navy.

Over 200 years ago, HMS Victory was the flagship of Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson, helping the British see off the might of the larger combined fleet of the French and Spanish during the Battle of Trafalgar.

Five-coin set honours HMS Victory for the first time ever

Now, this famous naval vessel is appearing on Silver 50p coins alongside Lord Nelson himself for the very first time as part of a very limited five-coin set.

The HMS Victory Silver Proof 50p Coin Set

And our entire edition limit of Silver 50p sets was taken aboard HMS Victory last month and placed in Nelson’s day cabin to soak up centuries of incredible history.

The five 50p designs feature the following:

  • HMS Victory at full sail
  • The ship’s stern
  • Canons at fire
  • A portrait of Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson
  • Nelson’s final moments

Each coin is struck from .925 Sterling Silver to a Proof finish and features its design in full colour!

And the complete set includes the first Lord Nelson 50p coin!

Tiny edition limit: Just 400 sets available

Just 400 sets are available; a tiny edition limit. For some perspective, when The Royal Mint released a Silver Proof £5 celebrating Admiral Nelson they sold out of an edition limit of 30,000.

How long can 400 sets possibly last? Especially knowing that they have been aboard Victory… 

Please don’t delay here or you will miss out.
