Whilst exact designs are still locked in the ‘Chamber of Secrets‘, the latest proclamation has revealed that we can expect the following to feature in the collection:
- A depiction of Harry Potter with the inscription, ‘Harry Potter 25 Years of Magic’

100th Anniversary of the BBC 50p
The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) was formed on 18 October 1922 by a group of leading wireless manufacturers including Guglielmo Marconi.
Since establishment, the BBC has been shaped by some of the UK’s biggest innovators, from Marconi, to John Logie Baird. Baird used BBC frequencies to broadcast some of his first experimental television broadcasts from studios near Covent Garden in London.
The BBC is highly regarded for its award-winning creative output, trusted and impartial news services and innovative use of technology.
To commemorate the centenary of the BBC, The Royal Mint have confirmed that they will be issuing a brand new 50p in 2022, which has definitely got Change Checker excited!
As of the Royal Proclamation, on 16th December 2021, the design is said to feature a globe with transmitter waves accompanied by the inscription “1922-2022 100 YEARS OF OUR BBC INFORM EDUCATE ENTERTAIN”.
2022 Winnie the Pooh 50ps
In 2020, The Royal Mint confirmed a brand new 9-coin series of 50ps celebrating 95 years of fun-filled adventure, each featuring a different inhabitant of Hundred Acre Wood.
The Winnie the Pooh 50p series continues in 2022, with the final three coins in the series being confirmed in the latest Royal Proclamation.
We can expect the final coins to depict designs of the following characters from A. A. Milne’s classic tale:
- Winnie the Pooh and Friends
- Kanga and Roo
These are some of the most famous characters from the story and we’re sure collectors will be racing to get their hands on these coins as soon as they’re issued!
