New 50ps mark the centenary of the opening of Tutankhamun’s tomb – PLUS, the FIRST coins to feature the new official British Isles Portrait of King Charles III.

November 4th 1922, in Thebes, Egypt, English archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the greatest treasure in Egyptology. The tomb of ancient Egyptian King Tutankhamun.

The excavation was slow and cautious. It wasn’t until 16th February 1923 that the third doorway was opened, revealing the Burial Chamber.

‘There before us lay the sealed door, and with its opening, we were to blot out the centuries and stand in the presence of a king who reigned three thousand years ago.’
  – Howard Carter

The chamber not only contained the perfectly preserved sarcophagus of Tutankhamun, but also remarkable treasures untouched for more than 3,000 years.

And now, to mark the centenary of this incredible discovery, a collection of new 50ps has been authorised by the Isle of Man Treasury.

But most importantly, these are the FIRST coins to feature the new official British Isles portrait of King Charles III.

The coin you needed a whole wheelbarrow of just to buy a loaf of bread…

Imagine the scene: Germany 1923 – the country is being forced to pay for the damage suffered during WWI. But they have missed a payment, and the country plummets into chaos…

France and Belgium invade Germany’s main industrial area, confiscating goods as reparation payments.

The economy is on the brink of collapse. Insufficient goods are being produced. Prices are running out of control…

Labourers are being paid twice a day because their wages are virtually worthless by lunchtime.

A loaf of bread, once costing 250 marks, now costs 20 billion marks! 

Queues of hungry, disheartened people line the streets of Germany with wheelbarrows and baskets of coins as they desperately try to feed their families.

Just imagine having to carry your money around in a wheelbarrow because it was worth so little.

Now, 100 years later, you can own a coin that has been taken straight from that wheelbarrow…

The 1923 German 200 Mark Coin

Recognised as practically worthless at the time, the 1923 German 200 Mark coin is now steeped in the rich history of Germany’s most shocking period of hyperinflation. And as we mark its 100th year of issue, demand could well be hyperinflated…

The hands that this coin could’ve passed through are ingrained into its fascinating history. When you consider that it was this very coin that would have been buried amidst hundreds of others waiting to be exchanged for a loaf of bread, you realise that no other coin has such a unique story.

Limited Number Available for JUST £19.99

It has taken months of searching to source just a small number of this historical coin for Westminster collectors. And you must be warned, collectibles from the Weimar Republic aren’t always the easiest to get your hands on, let alone ones from iconic years such as this – and with a price of less than £20.00!

200 Mark Coin in Capsule - The coin you needed a whole wheelbarrow of just to buy a loaf of bread…

Considering its 100th anniversary, fractional cost and unmatched history, the 1923 German 200 Mark coin will be a staple piece for committed collectors.

So, don’t miss your opportunity to secure one before it’s too late!
