The new 2019 Brilliant Uncirculated Sherlock Holmes 50p is now available to buy (released on the 13th of May).
The reverse of this 50p coin shows a silhouette of Sherlock Holmes surrounded by titles of the books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the inscription "SHERLOCK HOLMES" and "50 PENCE" as per the proclamation by the Queen published in The Edinburgh Gazette dated 29 June 2018.
The individual Royal Mint BU coin pack is currently not available from The Royal Mint or from The Westminster Collection, the release date is the 13th of May - it is available now to pre-order from the Coin Hunter Shop or from the Coin Hunt eBay Shop: Sherlock Holmes 50p BU Coin.
The previous three 50p coins released were not intended for circulation, but this commemorative design featured in the 2019 Annual Coin Set will be available to find in your change. The Sherlock Holmes 50p will enter cirulation, most likely later in 2019.
The official presentation folder Brilliant Uncirculated 50p will be sold for £10 by The Royal Mint (plus £3 delivery when ordered online) and available for £10 plus £2.99 delivery from The Westminster Collection.
The same product is also available direct from Coin Hunter (£1 cheaper) at £9 plus £2.99 delivery.
