Strike Your Own Sherlock Holmes 50p coin

The Strike Your Own Sherlock Holmes 50p coin was a unique offering by The Royal Mint, available to visitors of The Royal Mint Experience in Wales from 28th June 28 to 23rd September 2019.

Guests had the opportunity to strike their own version of this Brilliant Uncirculated coin during their tour, for an additional charge of £6.90.

What’s the coin design?

The Sherlock Holmes 50p coin itself, released in 2019, commemorates the 160th anniversary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s birth, the creator of the iconic detective. The coin features a silhouette of Sherlock Holmes on the reverse, designed by Stephen Raw, and the obverse carries the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Jody Clark. This coin holds a special place for collectors due to its cultural and literary significance, alongside its numismatic value​​.

For collectors interested in the market value, circulated versions of the Sherlock Holmes 50p coin hold their face value of fifty pence, with potentially higher values for those in good condition or still in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The Strike Your Own versions, given their unique nature and the experience associated with them, may fetch higher prices on the collector’s market​​​​.
