The beloved stories have resulted in a variety of collector’s items, such as Harry Potter wands and Hogwarts school trunks.
Collectors are predicted to jump at the chance of acquiring four 50p coins themed after Harry Potter. It is an unlikely boom that experts anticipate.
This collection is scarce since it holds the image of two distinct rulers.

These coins were minted last year, having been designed prior to the Queen’s passing, stamped with the year ‘2022’.
Two additional coins, emblazoned with Professor Dumbledore and Hogwarts school, will be issued with the King’s likeness featured on the opposite side of each one. Both coins will be dated ‘2023’.

These coins are legal tender but will not go into general circulation. Instead, they can be purchased through the Royal Mint website at a cost of £11 each.
Royal Mint refrained from commenting on how many coins are being produced in the series. Alex Siddons, who works for coin website Change Checker, expressed his opinion, stating: ‘When a coin’s design features one-of-a-kind tales behind it, such as dual dates, dual portraits or limited editions, they become must-haves immediately.’
Collectors find them more interesting and their value is perceived to be higher.
This sought-after collection has been a hit with avid collectors and fervent Harry Potter fans, and this year’s issuing of the final coin will make it truly memorable.
