Please register interest if you would like to buy The 2019 UK Brilliant Uncirculated Annual Coin Set or any individual coin from Coin Hunter. We expect to have BU 2019 coins in stock by the 10th of January.
The Royal Mint Advisory Committee (RMAC) provides recommendations for themes appropriate to the year and invites selected artists to submit designs. The RMAC then select designs to pass on to the Chancellor for initial approval and then to the Queen for final Royal approval. On the 1st of January 2019, The Royal Mint will reveal the new coin designs for 2019 that will become part of UK circulation or commemorative coinage.
The coins that will be part of the Annual Coin Set will be revealed in January, but here at Coin Hunter we expect the set will contain the following coins.

The Royal Mint have confirmed that during 2019 2 new 50p coin sets will be issued to mark 50 Years of the 50p coin.
2 sets of 5 coins each, likely produced in proof quality, silver and gold. The 10 most iconic 50p coins of the last 50 years will make up these sets, with each coin dated 2019.
All 50p coins after 1997 shown below were the smaller coin size: 27.3 mm / 8 g
It is very likely that these coins dated 2019 will be issued in the 50p sets only and not into general circulation.
