http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1999-S-LAND-ROVER-DEFENDER-90-50TH-ANNIVERSARY-300TDI-COUNTY-111-BHP-DIESEL-/191833189889?hash=item2caa262e01:g:QsoAAOSwcLxYJ73C

As far as I can see this has nothing in common with a 50th beyond being, maybe, in Atlantis Blue, and sporting gunmetal grey 5 spoke Discovery wheels - and being produced in 1998. But in that case all S regs are 50th anniversary

I don't buy it...

They did indeed make 50th hard tops,not Atlantis but did come in blue, green and red if I remember right. 300Tdi with same wheels, aluminium Land Rover badge on rear, alloy gear knobs and winders etc. I think it was around 400 made, not numbered.
