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.
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.

JUST 195 Available Worldwide – The DOUBLE DIAMETER Tutankhamun 50p struck from One Ounce of Pure Silver
Perhaps the most recognisable treasure discovered within Tutankhamun’s tomb was his iconic Death Mask. This mask’s incredible detail features on this BRAND NEW 50p with the brand new portrait of the King.
This impressive 50p has been struck to a DOUBLE DIAMETER size from 1oz of Pure Silver. That’s twice the size of a standard 50p and almost four times heavier!
Due to this rare and complicated striking technique, these remarkable coins take a little longer to produce than the rest of the collection.

The most sought-after Winnie the Pooh 50p coins yet!
The final coin in the Winnie the Pooh 50p series has been issued today, marking an end to one of the biggest sell-out stories of recent years. Secure yours here in .925 Sterling Silver >>
And, considering the drastic edition limit cuts to the 2022 coins, THOUSANDS of collectors are set to miss out on completing their collection…
Celebrating 95 years of fun-filled adventure, these charming 50p coins each feature designs of the best-loved characters from A. A. Milne’s original stories, with original illustrations from E. H. Shepard.
When the first three coins were issued in 2020, they took the collecting world by storm. They were so popular that the very first Silver Proof 50p featuring Winnie the Pooh himself – SOLD-OUT in LESS THAN 24 HOURS!
Tigger 50p sells out
Collector demand continued into 2021 with the second series of Winnie the Pooh 50p coins.
Featuring some of Winnie the Pooh’s most trusted companions, these coins each had an edition limit of JUST 18,000 for their Silver Proof specification.
In fact, so popular were these coins that the Tigger 50p is no longer available at The Royal Mint.
As collectors anticipated the issue of the final three coins in the series in 2022, at The Westminster Collection, we were already expecting demand to outweigh supply.
JUST 6,000 ISSUED WORLDWIDE
That’s because JUST 6,000 of each of the Silver Proof 50p coins have been issued worldwide – one third of the edition limit of the sell-out 2020 and 2021 coins!
12,000 collectors missed out on the Eeyore Silver Proof 50p as it sold-out in a matter of hours at The Royal Mint.
Undoubtedly, this final 50p, which features a design of the most popular Winnie the Pooh characters, will be just as popular. Unfortunately, this means many will likely miss out on securing it for their collection.
How much is the Winnie the Pooh 50p worth?
The first and last issues in any coin series are hugely popular with collectors.
When a theme is as universally popular as Winnie the Pooh, there are no surprises collectors rushed to get their hands on the UK’s first Winnie the Pooh 50p.
Much like first editions of best-selling books, or the first run of banknotes, UK-first coin issues can sell for well over their retail price on secondary market sites.
And, with edition limits as low as this, we knew the sell-out potential for this coin was high, and collectors knew it too.
Don’t miss out on the Winnie the Pooh and Friends 50p!
If you want to be one of JUST 6,000 lucky collectors to own this BRAND-NEW coin in .925 Sterling Silver, you’ll need to act extremely fast.
