Introducing the second coin in the UK Harry Potter 50p series, the Hogwarts Express 50p.
This spellbinding new UK 50p features a design of the iconic Hogwarts Express train, taken directly from the cover of Jim Kay’s 2015 illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone.
Set to sell out
The first 50p in the series, featuring Harry Potter himself, was incredibly popular, with all key limited specifications selling out within just 2 hours of release, not surprising as it was the first ever UK Harry Potter 50p and it featured that special lenticular feature.
This unique feature returns on the Hogwarts Express UK 50p, showing the trademark Harry Potter lightning bolt and the number 25, celebrating 25 years since the publication of the first book.
The FINAL individual collectable 50p featuring Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait
It’s been confirmed that the Hogwarts Express 50p will be the last individual collectable 50p to feature Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait on the obverse. This means that any future UK collectable 50ps issued will bear the new King Charles III effigy.
The FIRST UK 50p series with dual monarchs
Importantly, the Hogwarts Express 50p will be the last Harry Potter 50p to feature Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait. The other coins in the series will feature King Charles III’s portrait, making this the first ever UK 50p series to feature two different obverse monarchs.
Feel Harry’s excitement at the station
The Silver Proof Hogwarts Express 50p is struck from .925 silver to a pristine proof finish, and uses vivid colour to breathe life into the design. You can almost imagine standing on the platform waiting to board the train, feeling the excitement Harry must have felt.
You can, of course, also own the Hogwarts Express 50p in brilliant uncirculated quality.
And for something extra special, you can secure the most limited specification, gold proof.
The silver proof specification of this brand new 50p is strictly limited to just 15,000, so you’ll have to act fast to get your hands on one.
