GUERNSEY - The 50th Anniversary of Concorde 50p Coin - Single Coin
GUERNSEY - The 50th Anniversary of Concorde 50p Coin - Single Coin for only GBP £6.25
- Obverse: Ian Rank-Broadley / Reverse: Andrew Harris
2019 marks 50 years since the first flight of the legendary Concorde.
First flown in 1969, Concorde entered service in 1976 and continued flying for the next 27 years. It is one of only two supersonic transports to have been operated commercially. It had a maximum speed over twice the speed of sound at Mach 2.04 (1,354 mph).
“Brilliant Uncirculated” Collector Quality
Now, to commemorate this historic milestone, a stunning new British Isles 50p Coin has been approved.
This brand new coin will be struck in "Brilliant Uncirculated" collector quality and is guaranteed not to have the scratches and chips of normal circulation coins.
The reverse will feature a specially commissioned engraved design of Concorde, by artist Andrew Harris, moments after take-off.
A British Isles’ favourite!
The 50p coin has rapidly become the British Isles' most collectable coin, spurred on by the incredible success of recent releases.
I expect demand for the brand new Concorde 50p to be just as high.
This superb keepsake will be the ideal way to pay tribute to the most famous commercial aircraft ever produced – a true icon of the sky!
