2012 Royal Mint Shield of Arms 50p Silver Gold Proof Coin. Solid 925 Sterling Silver with 24 Carat Gold Plating. In 2012, to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, the Royal Mint released their only gilded annual silver proof set. 925 Sterling Silver plated in pure 24 Carat Gold. The number of sets released is not the commonly believed 2012.
The actual mintage was just 1,296. The 50p Coin has a reverse - a.Gilded section of the Royal Shield of Arms. The obverse - which is not gilded - features the Fourth Portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley. 2012 was the only year that this gold silhouette design has ever been used for the definitive 50p.
This gilded proof silver coin. Only available as part of the year-set and was never released as an individual coin. For this reason there are no genuine RM Certificates of Authenticity for this coin alone. This particular coin came from set no.
0503 and the CoA pictured is for authentication purposes only and not included in the sale. The coin is in excellent condition as can be seen from the photos taken from various angles. The capsule is, of course, included. My opinion - as long-time collector only - is that this coin would be well worth grading.
