The coin has been struck to a flawless Silver Proof quality and features a specially commissioned illustration design.

The FINAL Peter Pan Silver Proof 50p will be in higher demand than ever before as collectors try to complete their Peter Pan collections. But because of that dramatically lower edition limit – time is short. Click here now to guarantee your coin >>
The Complete Silver Proof Peter Pan 50p Set – the ultimate collector’s item
Last year’s Peter Pan Silver Proof 50p Sets completely SOLD OUT of the full 1,995 edition limit. And we expect this year’s set to sell out just as fast, if not quicker, especially as they have the exact same 1,995 mintage.
Each coin has been impeccably struck from .925 Sterling Silver to a stunning proof finish, and there is no doubt that these 50ps will be in higher demand than ever before as collectors try to complete their Peter Pan collections.
Plus, this exclusive collection is one of the only ways you can own ALL SIX coins in Silver Proof Quality. If you’re looking for a new centrepiece to your collection, this is it!
The Peter Pan Gold Proof 50p – the most prestigious and limited coin within the range
The crème de la crème of the range you could say. If you’re looking for the most premium and limited way to own one of these brand new Peter Pan 50p coins, then this is it.
Struck in .916 Gold to a flawless proof finish, this coin is guaranteed to popular with serious collectors. Though especially as this official new release has been given a strict edition limit of JUST 500 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.
The Ultimate Peter Pan 50p Cover – strictly limited to just 750 worldwide
If you’re looking for a unique and extremely limited way to own ALL SIX brand new Peter Pan 50p coins, then this is it.
This fantastic cover features the complete set of Peter Pan 50p coins, struck to a superior Brilliant Uncirculated quality, alongside a specially commissioned Royal Mail Peter Pan philatelic label.
Available exclusively from The Westminster Collection, the cover is limited to JUST 750 worldwide. Last year’s cover sold out in record time and we are expecting this to do exactly the same. So, if you’d like to be one of the lucky few to secure one for your collection you’ll need to act now.
Peter Pan remains one of the most cherished and loved children’s stories of all time and if last year’s coins are anything to go by, I’m sure these new 50ps are going to be some of the most sought-after coins of the year.
As with last year’s coins, each has been developed in partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and for every coin or set sold a donation will go directly to GOSH Charity to help support the hospital and the seriously ill children from across the UK who are cared for there.
Each year, The Royal Mint marks important British anniversaries, events or accomplishments on our coins and today we are delighted to reveal the UK’s new coin designs for 2018.
Scroll down to take a first look – I can assure you that you will not be disappointed!
Representation of the People Act 50p
This 50p celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the Representation of the People Act, which allowed all men over the age of 21 and women over the age of 30 the right to vote. Arguably one of the most significant Acts in modern British history, it laid the foundation for equality and democratic freedom that the UK has today. The stunning design features a detailed image of five figures in glorious celebration.
First World War Armistice £2
2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the First World War Armistice, concluding four years of bloody and gruelling combat, the like of which had never been seen before. ‘On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month’ the guns fell silent on the Western Front, a victory for the Allies but at a cost of over nine million soldiers’ lives. The words ‘the truth untold the pity of war’ are engraved on the reverse of this coin.
Royal Air Force Centenary £2
This coin marks the 100th anniversary of the formation of the RAF. It is the oldest independent air force in the world. Involved in critical missions throughout every decade and confrontation, the RAF have protected Britain’s skies since its inception and were integral to the victories in WWI and WWII. The iconic design on this £2 coin shows the iconic RAF Badge.
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein £2
This £2 coin pays tribute to Mary Shelley, marking the 200th anniversary of the publication of her most famous gothic novel ‘Frankenstein’. There’s no other iconic character in Horror than that of Frankenstein’s monster! It can be regarded as the first sci-fi novel ever written. The engraving, ‘The Modern Prometheus’ on this £2 coin, is a reference to the classical myth for which this story draws parallels with.
The 5th Birthday of HRH Prince George £5
This coin celebrates the 5th birthday of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge. Born on the 22nd July 2013, Prince George is the first born to their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and third in line to the throne. Over the past five years, from his birthdays to his first day of School, we have seen him grow into a charismatic young prince, winning a space in all the nation’s hearts. This beautiful traditional design features St George atop his stallion slaying the fire breathing Dragon.
All of these designs are stunning and there’s no doubt that these coins will only become more desirable in the years to come. I’m sure you already have your favourites, let us know in the comments!
