The Discovery

In 1922, British Egyptologist Howard Carter dared to explore a neglected stairway within the Valley of the Kings. And, as the world would later learn, one of his biggest discoveries lay at the bottom. Can you just imagine the excitement Carter and his team felt at the time?

The burial chamber of Tutankhamun had been untouched for over 3000 years, until the door was opened in February 1923. Ever since this historic discovery, the world has been intrigued by artefacts found in the tomb.

So, I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s only fitting that this Egyptian discovery is marked on a UK £5 coin by The Royal Mint!

UK 50p issued marking the 100th anniversary of the BBC

The BBC has broadcasted some of the world’s most exciting highs over the past 100 years but has also had the hard task of delivering some of the biggest lows.

And to mark this centenary milestone, The Royal Mint have issued a UK 50p with a design that symbolises the BBC’s global impact.

Radio and television have revolutionised our everyday, providing us with important news and endless entertainment.

Last year we saw John Logie Baird, ‘The Father of the Television’, celebrated on a UK 50p coin – and quite rightly so, because where would we be without our TVs?

The design features key milestones from Baird’s life, presented between lines of transmission.

But this isn’t the first coin to showcase a design with waves of transmission. The Royal Mint marked the 100th anniversary of wireless transmission in 2001 with a UK £2, pictured below.

In 1901, Guglielmo Marconi, an Italian physicist, succeeded in sending the first radio transmission across the Atlantic Ocean.

The message – simply containing the Morse code signal for the letter ‘s’ – travelled more than 2,000 miles from Poldhu in Cornwall to Newfoundland in Canada and won him worldwide fame and a Nobel Prize in physics in 1909.

Both coins have been popular with collectors, suggesting this new 2022 UK 100th Anniversary of our BBC CERTIFIED BU 50p may reach the same levels of demand.

And, these aren’t the first scientific innovators to appear on UK coins. In fact, the first 50p in the UK’s Innovation in Science series celebrated Stephen Hawking – making him one of ONLY three people to be celebrated on a UK coin within a year of passing!

The Stephen Hawking 50p was so popular that it sold out of ALL precious metal specifications on launch day — this, in turn, then drove a high demand for the BU issue.
