Description

The 2019 Concorde 50th Anniversary Gold Half Sovereign – celebrating the most successful supersonic airliner

Britain has much to be proud of but one of our greatest achievements was the design and development of Concorde.  Nothing else quite captured  the imagination in the same way as this airliner that could fly at twice the speed of sound!

There were only ever two supersonic airliners – Concorde and the Russian Tu144 – but Concorde flew higher and remained in service much longer, a testament to its quality and engineering.

Recently we celebrated 50 years since Concorde’s first supersonic flight. A new gold coin was produced and in tribute to the world’s first nature of Concorde, the coin too, is a world’s first!

FOR A WORLD FIRST AIRCRAFT, A WORLD FIRST GOLD COIN

When Concorde first took to the skies fifty years ago, the world watched in awe as an exciting new era of faster than-sound travel roared into life. Capable of travelling at twice the speed of sound, nothing came near Concorde for sheer style and innovation, and those who could afford to, clamoured for the chance to fly on the world’s fastest passenger jet,  famously “arriving in New York before they had left London”.

Concorde flew higher and faster than any airliner then or since, cruising at an average of 1,320 mph, she cut transatlantic flight times in half. At 60,000 feet, you could even see the curvature of the Earth while sipping champagne in your seat!

Her final flight in 2003 marked the sad end to a great era but despite this she is still an icon – one of the greatest achievements ever in aviation.

WORLD’S FIRST – BUT FEWER THAN 1 IN 12,500 UK HOUSEHOLDS CAN OWN ONE

Never before has a reverse frosted half sovereign coin been struck.   Authorised by Gibraltar, and approved by both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Buckingham Palace, this new Concorde gold coin is a wonderful celebration of Britain.

Minted from solid 22 carat gold, only 1,969 coins have been produced. This means fewer than one in every 12,500 UK households can own one.

There is a strict limit of one coin per household, and this offer is limited to UK mainland households only.
