David Pickup passed along this notice of the Royal Mint's new coin commemorating the BBC Centenary. Thanks.
The world's leading public service broadcaster marks its centenary in 2022. As the Corporation continues to thrive and innovate, we have struck a coin to celebrate this special anniversary.
In 2022, the BBC marks 100 years of broadcasting to the British public and beyond. To celebrate this magnificent achievement, we have created a beautiful commemorative coin that honours a century of award-winning creativity and innovation.
Since its inception in 1922, the BBC has dedicated itself to originality and ingenuity whilst striving for the highest quality service. From the dawn of radio to the advent of the internet, the Corporation has adapted to technology's evolution and remained at the forefront of British programming for all. Values we share at The Royal Mint.
The special 50p features a design by Henry Gray and pays tribute to the BBC's astonishing global reach. It is available as a gold Proof, silver Proof, silver Proof Piedfort and Brilliant Uncirculated edition to offer collectors flexibility of choice.
"Another new coin - the last with the Queen's head on it.
The press are now saying the 50 p with the King's head will be released into circulation in December and the coronation will be 6th May 2023."
