Years of issue:
The Professor Dumbledore 50p coin was issued as part of The Royal Mint’s Harry Potter 50p series. It celebrates 25 years since the first publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. The reverse design of this 50p has been taken directly from the 2015 fully illustrated edition of the first book, by Jim Kay. The obverse shows King Charles III’s portrait – making this coin the first Harry Potter 50p to feature His Majesty.
