Phileas Fogg’s first stop in his journey Around the World in 80 Days has been celebrated on a British Isles 50p coin, giving collectors a visual insight into his famous travels.
Struck to Brilliant Uncirculated Quality
Issued to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Jules Verne’s epic adventure story, this 50p coin has been struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality, meaning you won’t find any scratches or marks that you would usually find on circulating coinage.
The design shows Phileas Fogg standing beside a moving train, ready to embark on his journey of a lifetime. You can also spot Big Ben in the background! To pinpoint Fogg’s initial location, the top of the coin displays the word ‘LONDON’, with the title of the story above.
