An unprecedented coin type!

Testament to the seemingly limitless boundaries of numismatics, this groundbreaking tribute to the legendary 1840 Penny Black stamp is the first 50 pence coin ever struck with a ‘Pearl Black’ finish!

Penny Black Stamp 180th Anniversary

It is entirely appropriate that such an innovative work of modern minting would be employed to celebrate the 180th anniversary of the 1840 Penny Black. Why? Because, a pioneer in its own right, the 1840 Penny Black was the world’s very first adhesive postage stamp!

Superb Queen Victoria portrait

Conceived to thwart postal fraud rampant in the early 19th century, and issued for just one year, the Penny Black featured a beautiful portrait of Queen Victoria. Struck from 8g of sterling silver, the 27.30mm Penny Black 2020 50p Silver Proof Coin carries a stunning recreation of that portrait – magnificent rendered in the unique ‘Pearl Black’ finish!

Strictly limited edition!

An official legal tender issue of Gibraltar, presented within a box with a Certificate of Authenticity, the limited edition of this unique type is just 4,500. We have secured a small allocation from that tiny limited edition, but our stocks won’t last for long.
