This year Her Majesty becomes the first monarch in British history to celebrate a 95th birthday – an incredible milestone that has been celebrated, albeit in a slightly different way, this year.
And now to mark this incredible achievement a fantastic set of BRAND NEW 50p coins have been issued by the Isle of Man and fully approved by Her Majesty the Queen.
Check out the coins below and all the information you’ll need to order your favourites.
The COMPLETE Brilliant Uncirculated 50p Set
This fantastic collection features all six new 50p coins, each struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality and each featuring a specially commissioned portrait of Her Majesty by sculptor Luigi Badia, charting her reign from the 1950s to the present day.
What’s more, the coins will come protectively housed in a bespoke presentation pack that has been designed specifically for your coins.
This complete set is surely a MUST-HAVE for any serious coin collectors, so if you’d like to secure one for your collection for JUST £37.50 (+p&p).
The STRICTLY LIMITED Queen’s 95th Birthday Silver 50p Coin
You also have the chance to own the BRAND NEW 50p coin as a strictly limited Silver Proof! Your coin will come complete in a presentation case with a numbered certificate guaranteeing your coin’s place within the strict edition limit.
The Silver Proof editions are without a doubt the collector’s favourite and almost always completely SELL-OUT. And with an edition limit of JUST 4,995 coins, you’ll need to act now if you want to secure one for your collection.
The COMPLETE Queen’s 95th Birthday Silver Proof 50p Collection
One of the most limited ways to own these brand new coins is the Silver Proof Collection. With just 1,495 available to collectors worldwide, a sell-out is inevitable.
Each coin has been struck from .925 Sterling Silver to a Proof finish and comes ready to present in a deluxe presentation case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The Queen’s 95th Birthday Gold Proof 50p
Just 250 of these special new coins are also being struck from 22 Carat Gold. That’s a TINY number and is sure to be snapped up almost immediately by collectors.
This is an extremely exclusive and limited release, so if you want to secure one for your collection you really will need to act now.
This morning, not just one but SIX brand new British Isles 50p coins were released to celebrate Her Majesty’s 95th Birthday.
They feature six portraits of the Queen charting the years of her reign, and in my latest video I take a closer look and tell you EVERYTHING you need to know...

On May 15, the day of the Final itself, the RBL celebrates its 100th anniversary and, more importantly, 100 years of support to those who have served with Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.
It all began in May 1921, in the aftermath of the First World War, when four national organisations of ex-Servicemen came together to give a unified voice to those facing the bleak reality of Britain after that deadly conflict.
In the years since, the RBL has adapted and enhanced its services and continues to support today’s serving and ex-serving personnel.
On behalf of the RBL, The Westminster Collection has produced a beautiful full-colour RBL Centenary 50p coin, which bears the image of Her Majesty the Queen on one side, and the two-petal poppy on the other.
Charles Byrne, Director General of the RBL, said: “We are grateful to the FA, as this bespoke commemorative coin from the RBL will be used for the coin toss at this year’s Emirates FA Cup final between Chelsea and Leicester City, to recognise both our support and the service of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces over the past century.”
You can watch the FA Cup Final between Leicester City FC and Chelsea FC live on BBC One on Saturday 15th May. Kick off is at 5:15pm with the coin toss shortly before.
