Harry Potter will now appear on UK coins

The famous little wizard Harry Potter will appear on a series of coins in the United Kingdom, including one of 50 pence, the British organization responsible for printing money and banknotes, Royal Mint revealed.

“Royal Mint launches a collection of sorcerous coins to celebrate the 25th anniversary of ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone'”, the first volume of the phenomenally successful adventures of the wizard and the fantastic universe created by author J.K. Rowling , details the press release on Thursday.

The series will include four pieces including a portrait of the famous bespectacled wizard but also the Hogwarts Express train, Professor Albus Dumbledore and the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The parts notably include an optical effect which imitates the impact of a “lightning bolt” when it is rotated in front of the light, obtained thanks to a state-of-the-art laser which gives both a “magical” character to the coins, but also makes it possible to secure and authenticate them, specifies Royal Mint.
