Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the new release of the World's very first Pearl Black 50p coin to celebrate the 180th Anniversary of the Penny Black stamp. 

Back in 1990, Pobjoy Mint issued a coin which was the most innovative coin of its time and in fact was awarded with no less than THREE Coin of the year awards – Best Crown, Most Innovative Coinage and overall Coin of the Year.

The coin in question was produced to commemorate the anniversary of the world’s first adhesive stamp which was introduced in Britain in 1840 by the famous reformer, Rowland Hill. The stamp made philatelic history, with a beautiful but simple design by Henry Corbould showing the profile of the young Queen Victoria.
